    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 12, 2014

    It's funny if you ask fans to name key issues in a series, they almost never select the start of a run, proper jump on point or even a milestone release (i.e. 50, 100, etc). For me Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #32 represents the best the franchise has to offer and as it continues to grow I only see great things on the horizon. This is a must own! Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Mar 13, 2014

    This issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles delivers on a number of levels, but its greatest strength is that it is fun. The climax focusing so much on surprise and the light-hearted Michelangelo really made this fun read. The action is excellent and the healing of Aprils father make the end of this story arc a happy ending to remember. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Mar 17, 2014

    This issue shows the reader what a great read is all about. It has an important script that is accompanied by top class artwork. I am sure many thought that City Fall was as good as this title will ever get, but believe me you are wrong. The Northampton arc not only shows us that this series is more than an action comic, it also shows us that the future of this series is in good, if not great hands. This issue sets up for what is to follow whilst providing the perfect conclusion to the current arc. Go Ninja Go! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Mar 14, 2014

    All in all this comic is a must. For both current readers and new readers alike. I can't stress enough how awesome the comic is. The art is stunning and the story makes you keep reading from page one and wanting to read more. If this is your first reading the series, I highly suggest you go buy the rest of the previous issues along with new issues to come if you loved what you read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Mar 12, 2014

    Now as we head back to New York City, Leo's return to being the leader of the team doesn't feel forced or contrived. Instead, we got some great character development (along with plenty of action) to help prime us for the war to reclaim the city. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Lenny Wojt Mar 14, 2014

    Visually, Ross Campbell and Ronda Pattison are top notch. Campbells turtles, with their well rounded, weightiness feel genuine and life-like. Characters facial expressions convey emotion and power and are wonderful accents to the body language on stage during the action scenes. His character designs for Koya, the assassins and even Aprils new haircut are all visually pleasing as well as properly thought-out. Campbells pencils and inks bring the Turtles to life but it is Ronda Pattisons colors that make them sing. Her solid, bold colors on top of earth toned backgrounds make each panel pop off the page. This issues secret weapon is that its so colorful you cant stop looking at it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 12, 2014

    On the writing front, Waltz properly caps off this arc after four issues, bringing the characters full circle and sending them on the next stage of their journey. Both Leonardo and Alopex have pivotal moments in this issue, for better or for worse. This arc has definitely gone a long way toward endearing me to Alopex, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor, misunderstood warrior and her struggle to find a family. This issue actually hits a bit of a false note in terms of where it leaves her relationship with the Turtles, but hopefully Waltz can rectify that in a future issue. There's plenty of reason to be excited about where this series is heading. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Mar 12, 2014

    We thought this arc was giving us a chance to catch our collective breath after an explosive event, but it turns out the first few issues were just the quiet before the storm. Northampton ends with a bang and the ramifications look like they're going to play out in a big way next month. Read Full Review
