    Comic Crusaders - Robert Swanson Dec 9, 2019

    From my viewpoint, this eight part series really finds a way to wrap you into the big picture with this final issue. The creators and IDW craft a turtle soup story that no five star restaurant can ever cook up. It makes your laugh, it makes you gasp, and it makes you bring a box of tissue to it. It's storytelling done right, and it's a TMNT story that will be remembered for years to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Ronald Simmons Dec 11, 2019

    Waltz and company go out with a Bang in issue 100, which is what you should expect from the best interpretation of the turtles ever produced. Artist/Writer Sophie Campbell will be at the helm next year with issue 101. Itll be interesting to see how she dives into Jennikas character and if she can learn to love being a turtle. The first arc in IDWs TMNT is called Change is constant, and there are deff a lot of changes coming after this issue. Families change, Friends change, Writers change, but you can bet This being a must-have book every issue wont change at all. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Dec 20, 2019

    I realize the turtles arent going anywhere, but seeing Shredder carry Master Splinter's lifeless body, gave me chills, my eyes watered, I closed the book and silently said thank you to Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird, Tom Waltz, and everyone that has ever drawn and wrote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I truly cannot wait for the next 100 issues. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Dec 20, 2019

    TMNT #100 is by all accounts a success. Though imperfect from a craftsmanship perspective, it is a perfect capstone to 100 issues of storytelling while springboarding the series into the future. IDW Publishing deserves a lot of credit for putting together this creative team, as their efforts have resulted in the definitive version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 18, 2019

    The sacrifice of Splinter and return of a less-murderous Oroku Saki felt like an echo of Magneto's X-Men from so many years ago. I'm not sure where such a move takes the Turtles moving forward, but it certainly shakes up the status quo (in a way IDW wasn't willing to do in allowing Donatello to stay dead or a robot). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Dec 11, 2019

    With the help of co-plotters Kevin Eastman and Bobby Curnow, the strong artwork of Mike Dialynas and Dave Wachter, and colors by Ronda Pattison, the issue is a fitting conclusion to an inspired reimagining of a fan-favorite franchise. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 10, 2019

    The writing is really good and it is incredible that the writing team has been planting these seeds and letting them grow for this long. The art is great as well; it just doesn't all flow together. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 10, 2019

    Overall, longtime fans of this series should find plenty of reasons throughout this story to move them - be it thrills and excitement or sombre moments of pause. Even those who have a more casual interest in the TMNT and want to see what these characters are up to will find plenty to recognize to keep their interest and even more questions raised that will encourage at least a few to stick around and see what happens next. There's a lot to take in, and it can be a little dizzying at times to keep up with it all given how big and bombastic the team takes this story, but it should be a crowd-pleaser all the same.

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Dec 9, 2019

    If you're a TURTLES fan, this is the issue things have been building toward. If you've been away for a while, this is the issue to catch you back up. Either way, it's going to be a milestone in TMNT history that you're going to want to have in your collection. Read Full Review

    GTMedia Reviews Dec 14, 2019

    I've referenced a few titles for consideration when it comes to the best single issue of 2019. The first issue that comes to mind would be House of X #2 which covered the lives of Moira X. House of X #4 which covered the X-Men's assault on the Mother Mold facility. The Walking Dead also ended this year and did what Game of Thrones could not in providing a satisfying conclusion to that series.

    Even with those releases, I feel pretty comfortable naming TMNT #100 as 2019's top comic. All opinions are subjective and I admit at the outset of this review that my enjoyment of this issue is colored by having read about 90% of all of the TMNT content that has been released since IDW acquired the IP.

    i wish i could hop on the hype train.
    a few critics have given this comic a perfect 10. it IS NOT a perfect 10!!
    jumping back and forth through various artists was jarring.
    a lot of the art looked very rushed and it really took me out of the story.

    i guess my frustration really comes with just how much time & money this series takes to go nowhere.
    they force readers (customers) to have to buy supplement mini-series and one-shots to get the full story, yet so many stories get dragged out endlessly and never really go anywhere, or have a satisfying conclusion.
    plus what’s the point of buying a Ninja Turtle comic if the Ninja Turtles never really get to shine in their own series?

    the plot has be more

    Great issue that wrapped up the city at war arch leaving plenty of new directions for the book to go. The conclusion felt a little rushed but the resulting emotional ending scene after totally made up for it.

    Not as Grand as the Big issue 50 wrap up...I liked splinters ending but found too many of the plot lines to conclude too easily
