The Turtles hit the high seas when they are dropped in the middle of a pirate battle! Little do they know that the true leader of the pirates is an enemy they are all too familiar with. Getting out of the time period alive will all depend on the quick wits of the Turtles' captain... Michelangelo?!

    All in all, TMNT: Turtles in Time #3 is a great issue. It's got action, an ending that gives a classic TMNT character a way into the series and we get to learn a bit more about the turtles. It's also one of those issues where if you weren't a fan of Mikey before, you'll be one now. I highly suggest buying TMNT: Turtles in Time #3. It's just one of those comics that gets you excited for the series all over again. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 27, 2014

    Turtles In Time #3 is the best looking book in the series so far, and it has a pretty fun story that entertains for the full 20-odd pages. Things start tying together a little, but hopefully the series really brings it home next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Aug 27, 2014

    The story over in the primary series is getting seriously intense and the stakes are high, so it's nice to have TURTLES IN TIME for an overwhelming amount of lighthearted goodness. Just like the previous two issues, the objective here is to shed a little light on the specific era, give it a link to the bigger picture, and, of course, deliver some laughs and action along the way. Chapter three does each of these well, but it is a little bit of a bummer how the Turtles don't feel like stars in their own limited series and we didn't see very much of them actually battling pirates. That said, the script is humorous and fun, the artwork is incredibly pleasant, and the cliffhanger is very exciting. Read Full Review

    Overall, Turtles in Time continues to provide an entertaining take on the potentially worn-out time travel trope, and while this issue doesnt quite maintain the dizzying heights of issue two, Bates' gorgeous artwork and Burnhams firm, confident grasp on the lead characters ensure that this is still pretty much essential reading for any and all TMNT fans out there.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 27, 2014

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time #3 is what it needs to be and a bit more. It entertains its audience and doesn't cheapen the franchise, so by all means pick this up and have a ball. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Sep 2, 2014

    The Turtles in Time arc serves its purpose as being a fun filled adventure title that shows our heroes in completely different surroundings. It is more light-hearted than the main on-going story but it still makes for a good and entertaining read and like Michelangelo. I approve of this message. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Aug 26, 2014

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot about Renet, who is still a terrible character. Maybe she'll end up doing something cool by the end, but so far she's just been an inexplicable annoyance. If she ends up teleporting into a volcano, I might give the next issue an 11/10 just for that. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 27, 2014

    I think with so many Turtle comics, you have to weed out the unimportant ones. So no matter how much I want or you want Turtles in Time to work, it just isn't working. Once I see some crossing over with the main comic, I think I will shy away from these mini-stories back in time. Read Full Review

    The story is nothing special, and mostly hinges on the pirates being straight up idiots, but I like the continuity teasers and Ben Bates delivers superb action and drama in his art. I liked Bates's art in Turtles prior to this, but I'd say he's gotten even better since then.
