    The creative teams of writer Brian Lynch and artist FrancoUrru do a great job of continue the success from the ongoing. Urru's art styleis very different from Duncan's, but it works in a positive way and plays toLynch's story the way it needs to. I would have to say that as good as thestory is there was a lot of art and very little story or dialog, when there wassome it was quite good but there needed to be a better balance between thedialog and the captions. Otherwise Lynch and Urru have added a noteworthychapter to the Turtles story. This week doesn't have a lot of stuff coming out,but I recommend picking up both issues of Turtles and stop back for Eric'sreview of the fourth issue with his fresh prospective. Read Full Review

    Casey Jones is handled in a realistic manner, while the Turtles are more heavily shaded and stylized. Urru doesn't seem all that comfortable drawing Alopex. She recalls Greg Land's depiction of Beast in Uncanny X-Men in that she resembles an animal's head crudely pasted onto a humanoid body. The character clearly seems poised for an ongoing role in the franchise, so hopefully the various artists on these books can nail down the design. Read Full Review
