    Do you like the show? If the answer is yes, go buy this issue right now. Byerly does a tremendous job recreating the show's massively entertaining and lovable vibe while doing a superb job with the dialogue. Throw in the fact Brizuela/Breckel do a flawless job making the visuals feel just like the animated series and you've got a must read for anyone who loves the show. Seriously, if you dig the show at all, it's your duty as a fan to give this a chance. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 9, 2013

    Much like a good done-in-one cartoon episode this story is fun, fulfilling and has everything you'd want. I'm by no means a big TMNT fan today, but I found this issue entertaining enough to add some smirks and keep my interest. Really this is a perfect comic when you take into account all the types of folks who can take enjoyment from this issue. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this first issue and the comic's take on version of the characters being used in the cartoon. I'm glad to see the comic simply jump right into the world rather than feel the need to do another origin story. Fans of the other Turtle books or the cartoon are going to have no trouble following the series. It's also nice to see that IDW isn't just shoving out another Turtles title without some care to the quality of the book. This issue has sold me on the series which, as long as the quality keeps up, I hope to see get a long run. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Jul 10, 2013

    The only thing that is weird about this comic is that it doesn't offer anything more than the show. The stories are little side line guys. If they are going to have it play off the show completely then give me stories that will allow me to explore more of the show with. I have noticed that a lot of children's books do this when based off shows or a movie. The story is only face value which is cool and all but why not offer something kids can talk about and be knowable on. Maybe this is my teacher side coming out. Anyway, the comic is a fun read and these characters bring such a good light on the Turtles in spite of all the bad Turtle themes heading our way. It may be my favorite thing yet. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Sean A. Guynes Jul 10, 2013

    Im not a TMNT fan, so itd be unfair for me to judge the comic harshly, but overall I thought it was a fun adventure, something that fans of the animated comics or TMNT would have a good time reading. Also, I think this is a good bridge comic for getting kids into comics, so it has to be applauded for that effort. Just as DC and Marvel are reaching out with these kids comics, it seems IDW has jumped on the bandwagona smart and successful move. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Derek Baker Jul 9, 2013

    Whether youre a kid looking to read TMNT comics for the first time or an adult who cant get enough Turtles, theres a little something for everyone. The story wont blow you away, but if you enjoy the Nickelodeon series, this is a nice companion piece. With so much doom and gloom around us, its nice to kick back and read something that reminds you of a simpler time. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Anthony Couto Jul 10, 2013

    This issue could have really benefitted from a close focus on each of the Turtles, outlining why they're unique, and establishing their dynamic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Animated Adventures #1 could have used more of the zany Laser Pizza Slicer" moments that really define the Turtles, instead of throwing them into an unsuitable situation.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Animated Adventures is based solely on the characters of the current television show. If you enjoy the show, then this is the comic for you. #01 is as if it is another episode of the television series. It does not fall in to a particular order of the show which makes it easier for a reader to jump in to. Even if somebody was not watching this particular series, you are able to read this particular book with out the worry of missing vital information. The wonderful thing about this comic is that it can be read by a range of different ages. Most comics out there at the moment are made solely for adults or solely for children of a certain age, but the versatility of this comic allows it to be read by children that are fans of the show or general fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In conclusion, this comic has had a strong start. Showing familiar characters such as the Turtles' friend - April O'neil and their Sensei/father - Splinter as main protagonists along with the Turtles, tells us that it is not just another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. This comic would not disappoint a turtles fan, new or old.
