    IDWs TMNT is a book worth checking out. This series has become a must for your pull list. Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz and Ben Bates are on a real hot streak. Its going to be exciting to see how long they can keep up this momentum. Until then, TMNT fans can just sit back and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Feb 22, 2013

    With turtles in Dimension X and all the crazy going on it's as compelling a read as anything else. You want to turn the page and see what happens next, even when there's no real action going on. Everything just feels like it's building to a huge showdown with Turtles, the Foot, and Krangs army and if the pace and caliber keeps up it's going to be one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Ben Bates continues as a major upgrade on art duties, giving the aliens an OEL manga look that sets off the "normal" look of the Turtles. I also love his facial features, which help liven up the script, which I hope returns to earth soon. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Bob Chamberlain Feb 26, 2013

    This book has managed to completely reignite my love of this franchise and is quickly becoming my favorite monthly read. If you've ever been a fan, this comic is a gift. Do yourself a favor and accept it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 20, 2013

    I know some of you are probably shocked by the 3 star rating. I regularly praise this title and constantly give it 4-5 stars, but to me, this issue felt like a lot of filler (Karai aside, that is) and didn't really deliver with its final rush. Overall, it's an okay issue. I don't find myself reflecting positively on this issue... instead, I'm left anticipating how things will play out in the next one. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 27, 2013

    The comic also gives us (not nearly enough) scenes of Karai‘s own mission as the Shredder‘s daughter sneaks onto Burnow Island causing mischief and mayhem on Krang's home base on Earth. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #19 isn't bad, but it's an awful lot of Neutrino politics and set-up for a battle that's barely begun before the comic comes to a close. In fact you could probably skip this issue entirely and not skip a beat picking the comic up again next month. For fans. Read Full Review
