    If you are a fan of the franchise, there's no reason for you to be skipping this book. It might very well be the best run of TMNT comics ever produced. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Adrienne Crean Oct 16, 2014

    We get very little villain action, minus the Foots very own Mutants that are starting a ballsy fight with Hob's growing mutant army. This is where Santolouco brings his all, with fast action scenes that have some of the best colors I've ever witnessed. The action norm for me, is quick movements, and any bright colors added are more of a blur. However, Santolouco brings such crisp, detailed lines to the scenes, that it left me bug eyed with “Wow”.

    All in all Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles #39 is a fun read in which fans of Bebop and Rocksteady are going to enjoy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #39 shows that it's well written and the art is great, for the most part. I can't wait to see the next issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to see how the turtles will handle Bebop and Rocksteady. Read Full Review

    More concerned with the events in Dimension X and the construction of the Technodrome nearing completion, Donatello leaves the group to enlist the help of Harold and work towards stopping the Krang invasion of Earth which he sees as a far greater threat that the Shredder‘s vendetta against Splinter and his family. I don't expect this split to last all that long but it does open Donnie up for his own storylines while opening a spot on the team for my favorite new character of the series. Yeah, I'm pretty happy Alopex is back in action once more (now would somebody get busy making me a figure?). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    TMNT brought it this week. The action is intense and with all the stories divided, it makes for some interesting plot points and transitions. I wouldn't miss this new issue" especially if you are a mutant fan. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - louis whiteford Oct 16, 2014

    TMNT has had a lot of ups and downs this year. It’s expanded the cast of characters, shifted allegiances, and messed with timelines in two excellent miniseries-Utrom Empire and Turtles in Time, respectively. What is hasn’t had is focus. Entire issues have felt pointless due to an overwhelming amount of dangling plot threads, while others have blown me away just for sticking with a character all issue long. Issue #39 is much more the former than the latter, but with execution this solid it feels like the writers might have unearthed the secret to getting this show on the road. More like this please.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 15, 2014

    IDW's TMNT consistently proves it's a great, character-driven, and fun series. But if you've been reading along, you already knew that, didn't you? Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman, and Bobby Curnow are doing incredible work with this franchise. They're taking so many familiar elements and themes but adding just enough to make it feel new, intriguing, and totally engrossing. The fact they have such a talented art team bringing their script to life doesn't hurt, either. Month after month, this series is excellent. Even if you're just a casual fan of the heroes in a half shell, I strongly suggest giving it a shot. Read Full Review

    After so many character introduction issues, we're finally getting back on track with the ongoing story. There is also plenty of character development here, especially with Donnie, enough to satisfy any fan.
