    All in all, this is an incredibly enjoyable package, and – as I mentioned above – is definitely one of the best issues of the TMNT Universe series to date. Boss gets to showcase his visual comedy chops and Allor brings us a story that is both blindingly simple and brilliantly inventive. Highly, highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This is a delightful issue, and one TMNT fans will be able to enjoy even if they haven't been keeping up with the full series. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 2, 2018

    After the past two lackluster issues of this series (see the reviews here), TMNT Universe #18 has it back on track. Paul Allor writes a fun one-and-done story about the Turtles trying to escape a building full of people. The dialogue is fantastic and Allor once again shows why he is just a great writer. TMNT Universe #18 is also aided by some beautiful artwork by Tyler Boss. His more animated style is perfectly suited for this type of story and he lays out the issue perfectly. TMNT Universe #18 is just a fun/silly type issue that was just a delight to read! Read Full Review

    The book may feel too silly/slaptick even for an all-ages book, but it's still a fun read. Read Full Review

    The Good-
    -FINALLY Ninja Turtle focused issue
    -at long last the title characters get to star in their OWN book!!
    -mildly amusing silly humor (almost a little too silly though)
    -Paul Allor writes pretty good banter for the Turtle brothers (especially Michelangelo)

    -back-up story was nice, and had good art.

    The Bad-
    -annoying bratty kids
    -the plot was a bit too slapstick
    -the Turtles get overtaken by aforementioned annoying bratty kids too easily.

    The Ugly-
    -the art in the main story was very amateurish looking, and overall very ugly.
    -annoying bratty kids didn't get punched in the face or kicked in the head.

    ….did i mention the art was ugly?
