    Conclusion: I am really running out of things to say about this book and not repeating my self from my previous review. Paul Allor's writing on the main story is just great stuff and he is just great at developing characters. The art remains solid and is hard hitting when it needs to be and emotional when the script calls for it. Not to sound like a broken record but really the back up story with Leo is okay and all but really detracts from the main story and book itself. For $4.99 give me more pages of the main story or something other than Leo having some kind of fever dream or whatever is going on in it! Overall a great book, but the whole back up story is wearing out its welcome. Read Full Review

    For those with a basic knowledge of the franchise, little background is needed to simply start with this issue. The pace of the story is very fast, and things are pretty much self-explanatory. On the other hand, for those unfamiliar with Stockman, Bishop, and the Earth Protection Force, it might be a difficult jump-in. If you're a fan of the Turtles, or if you just like a really good siege story, this is fine reading. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue, probably the best so far and things are really heating up. It's like a mix between The Raid and (REC) which is just fine by me. If this keeps up we could be looking at one hell of a series here. Read Full Review

    But other than that one (glaring) issue, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #3 is great. Not only is the story good, but the stakes get raised in a very major and believable way. More importantly, it looks like we can safely mark this title down as a quality addition to the TMNT mythos. Read Full Review

    Universe is ticking along so nicely at the moment that learning more about the main adversary is the only thing I think can be improved upon. Read Full Review

    I wasn't expecting this side-story series to delve deep into Raphael's motivation and inner turmoil, but I am happy to report that I'm pleasantly surprised. It turns out that this is essential reading for TMNT fans.

    continues to be amazing! . . . . . . the dialog is a joy to read, and the peril is intense! . . . . . . we get some wonderful character moments, especially with the villains of the story. . . . . . there are nice mentions to Raphael's isolation from his family from the first arc of the IDW Tmnt series, and how it has affected Raph emotionally. . . . what i love most is the layers written into the characters. . . . . my biggest gripe with the main story is that Leonardo has absolutely ZERO presence in it! he feels like he's just there taking up page space and not doing much of anything. . . . . . Agent Bishop is turning out to be a REAL NASTY S.O.B.!!!!! . . . . can't wait to find out how the main story concludes next month! . . . . . . the more
