Raphael is pushed to his breaking point as he is separated from his brothers and forced to endure an onslaught from the nefarious Bishop unlike anything he has experienced in the past!

Oversized action from TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, who scripts and does layouts, with inks by Ben Bishop!
An important turning point for Raphael that will have long-lasting repercussions!

    There are some fantastic art scenes in TMNT: Macro-Series Raphael #4 but as a whole, I don't think it works well. Really the last part saved this issue for me. It was more focused on Raphael. I love, love, love the final page. I won't spoil it for you but it is already one of my favorite things in TMNT media ever! Read Full Review

    Raphael finally gets the spotlight in this issue. In many respects, this is a throwback to the Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It also manages to build on the current series. It works as an effective bridge between two generations of comics while providing insight into the least understood or our heroes. 

    This is easily the darkest of the Macro-Series issues. I appreciate the complete change of pace but I do feel that the series doesn't go far enough. Kevin Eastman clearly has a Raphael story in mind he wants to tell but for whatever reason, he never takes the gloves off and cuts loose.

    some things i enjoyed, mostly the concepts. Eastman kind of turned Raphael into Weapon X.
    i also liked the backstory that Raphael was given from when he was separated from his brothers (pre-IDW Tmnt #1) pity we only see this seven years later into the run.
    i still don't care for Agent Bishop & the EPF as ongoing characters. they just doesn't hold my interest, and that story has been dragging out way too long now.

    i did really love the comradery between Raph and Casey in the beginning of the issue. no one writes the hijinks of Raph and Casey as well as Eastman does! NO ONE!

    the art was a bit underwhelming. i really wish Kevin Eastman could have done the finished pencils and inks.

    overall this was more
