    It feels like I may have been a little bit overly-harsh on TMNT Universe #16, but I was really looking forward to the Triceratons getting a two-issue story arc all about them (note this story is continuing in TMNT Universe #17) and was completely let down by this issue. The story failed to hold my attention and was very basic; the art, while not bad, was just very unimaginative and just lacked any kind of “pop” that the Triceratons need to jump off the page. The art is not bad but when you have other great artists on this series and the other TMNT ongoing series doing some really great things it really makes this stand out as very basic and boring.TMNT Universe #16 just fails to do anything exciting and, sadly, is just an okay comic book.

    the cover really was very misleading!!!!!
    i actually thought we'd finally get to see some Ninja Turtles in this comic!!

    ................ NOPE!!!

    the visual story-telling wasn't all that great. had to re-read a few parts just to be able to tell what was supposed to be going on.

    lowered my score just for the fact that the cover actually had me thinking i'd see a cool Ninja Turtle/Triceraton confrontation.
    instead we get backstory on the Triceratons, that wasn't really all that exciting or interesting.

    we also get another useless back-up story that accomplishes nothing but jack up the price to $4.99.

    the Triceratons were much more interesting characters in the comics by Mirage.

    ! ! ! ! ! ONE MORE THING ! ! ! ! !

    the female Triceraton has the wrong horn damaged. in previous issues it was the horn on the other side.
    you might think someone would have noticed a detail like that?
