    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Aug 23, 2012

    Andy Kuhn, the new artist, moves to a more rounded feel for the art, working in looser lines that are sketchier and not as defined. Unfortunately, this hurts the emotional range of the Turtles, who tend to either grin or shout here. TMNT's strong story keeps this one recommended. Read Full Review

    Though Shredder is back from the dead, its nothing a good game of Twister wont solve for the turtles. However, Splinter finds himself isolated from the group, deep in thought over the recent change of events. In the meantime, Baxter Stockman, who is being held captive by Krang, stumbles on to something big, while an unexpected visitor at the turtles house pushes Raphael over the edge. Read Full Review

    It's not so much the substance of the issue that's disappointing, but the timing. I'd appreciate more levity in my Turtles, please. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 24, 2012

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #13 is a very solid read that continues to build on the excellent foundation already established by this latest iteration of the Heroes in a Half-Shell. Recommended. Read Full Review

    TMNT #13 does hit troubled water with the art, which sucks. Andy Kuhn is a fairly big deal in the world of comics but I’ve never been a fan of what he does. His work is too rigid for me. It looks too stylized. In TMNT #13, his work looks unfinished or at the very least rushed. Why do all the TMNT have really tiny heads? Why is Splinter so buck toothed? Why do all the humans have the same look on their face across the board? It’s especially offensive how badly Kuhn pencils Casey Jones. At one point, it looks like Casey has the mumps, in another, he has no lower jaw. Really sloppy work for an otherwise killer title. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 28, 2012

    The main story points have to do with the Turtles killing time after saving Splinter while The Shredder (who is drawn for the first time with pupils instead of zombie eyes) finds only disapproval with his granddaughter Karai. There's also the return of the subplot of Casey Jones and his abusive father. For fans. Read Full Review
