    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Oct 31, 2011

    I really enjoyed this issue. It's a very different take on the turtles from the late 80s/early 90s cartoon, and is probably more similar to the original comic books (which I never read, being born in 1990), but it is quite enjoyable. Unfortunately it's priced at $3.99, which I don't like paying for a comic book. I don't think TMNT is going to make the cut on my already over-budget pull list, but I will be keeping an eye out for this series when it hits a bargain bin, and I might use future reviews to justify an additional purchase of the title here and there. Overall I give Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3 four stars out of five; it was a good issue that provided enjoyable back story, some good action and a good bit of nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 25, 2011

    You have to give IDW credit for really putting out a greatproduct that continues to please and excite the way Turtles has for threemonths now. Already people are tired of talking about DC and yet the Turtlesbuzz continues each month. If you're buying the book then this is definitely apayoff issue that sets the stage for the fourth issue to be even bigger andmore action packed. What are you waiting for already, buy the damn book!

    A bromance has blossomed between Raphael and Casey Jones while the origin story of the Splinter and the turtles is revealed. If you are familiar with the cover of the old school Nintendo game, you noticed that all four turtles wear the red mask as opposed to different colors. The dialog and art does a great job of making sure you can tell who's who at all times. The artwork does a fantastic job of capturing Splinter's caring nature as he is protecting the pre-mutated turtles from capture. In my opinion, this is the dark horse (no pun intended) comic book of 2011 that will be enjoyed by all fans alike. Read Full Review

    IGN - Miguel Perez Oct 26, 2011

    Although the problem may only appear to be getting worse in my eyes, the unnecessarily wordy dialogue is in serious need of some editing. There is so much repetition in what's being said that the words lose their impact quickly, not to mention the fact that it screws up the pacing of the scenes. As before, this underlines the problem of the book feeling disjointed. Once the flashbacks conclude I suppose that won't be an issue, but then we'll be losing the best part of the book as well. Needless to say, I'm not exactly looking forward to that. Read Full Review
