    For my money's worth, this issue was really good, and I'd really recommend it as a stand-alone issue you can read out of continuity. Read Full Review

    Now back in the present, Splinter decides that he must take the life of his enemy Shredder and the issue ends with a showdown that will proceed into the main storyline in issue #12So far, this was my favorite out of all the micro series stories. It was a great read to get into the mind of Master Splinter and learn more about him. Usually the focus is on his sons so this was a great story to learn more about the turtles teacher. Burnhams writing was excellent and Charles Paul Wilson IIIs artwork was great. Readers should pick this one up right away. Read Full Review

    It's a deep story that's harmed a bit by the choice of artist. Charles Paul Wilson III does not seem to get Splinter's body shape right while in rat form, though I liked how he choreographed the battle scenes. Wilson does a better job with the flashbacks, but even those felt a bit flatter and stiffer than you'd expect from a martial arts story. Overall, this issue of TMNT Microseries follows in its predecessors' footsteps, expanding on the spotlight character and providing a great story for fans of the Turtles. Read Full Review
