    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Oct 16, 2020

    Featuring some terrific visuals, fluid panels, and a cast of interesting characters, highlighted by a terrifying background. The Last Ronin would have been can be called a gem in the rough, if only it did not have so much hype around it. If does not waste any time trying to build momentum preferring to dive in on the action, and world build at the same time. Read Full Review

    In the ways that Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns provided Batman with a sense of closure through taking readers through the Batman's final story (later sequels notwithstanding), so too do we see Eastman, Laird, and their fellow creators look to offer a comparable finale for their decades-long creations.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 19, 2020

    I was super excited to read TMNT: The Last Ronin #1, but was trying not to get too hyped. Luckily, from the opening pages, The Last Ronin #1 is a fantastic start to this 5-issue mini-series. If you are a fan of the Mirage days of TMNT then you will feel right at home. If you are not as familiar it may take some adjusting, but any TMNT fan can pick this up and enjoy. Read Full Review

    To be a true warrior one must know when to crouch, when to leap, and when to stand firm The Last Ronin. These teachings stick with The Last Ronin just as much as the guilt he carries. Regardless of who The Last Ronin is, we cant ignore the path our hero has traveled and the pain theyve felt in their journey. For TMNT fans this has been a long time coming to see Laird and Eastman back together again. They have surrounded themselves with an all-star team that shares their passion for TMNT storytelling and the end product is nothing short of amazing. Frank Miller has The Dark Knight Returns and now Laird, Eastman, and Waltz have The Last Ronin. This is going to be one hell of a story. Read Full Review

    Point blank reaction: I enjoyed the hell out of this book. Ive started reading through IDW Publishings TMNT books and while I havent read it all, The Last Ronin reads like one hell of a sendoff. I do wonder how hard this will be to actually get. Word is the print run was cut short and some shops think their full orders wont be filled. There are also around 70 variants out there for this book. This is definitely a read but I think its good enough to purchase. I feel like a lifetime of enjoying the various incarnations of the TMNT, whether its been comics, cartoons, or movies, has prepared me for this moment where they are down to one against all the evil in the world. Maybe it's cliche but The Last Ronin is an absolute blast. Read Full Review
