    I have been a big fan of this book since it launched, but this just might be my favorite issue of it! It is just a fun Christmas time read. Minor spoiler there are no "action" scenes in this book but it does not matter one bit. The story and art are almost perfect, it's hard to do a review with out spoiling any of the great moments in this issue. If you are not even a fan of TMNT and have never read an issue I would still say just pick this up to get in the Christmas spirit. I might have got something in my eye at the ending also.

    With little bearing to the main narrative this isn't quite a must read, but it's a thoroughly enjoyable one that provides a welcome and entertaining aside. Read Full Review

    Then there's the ending. It could easily have become melancholy but instead makes fantastic use of the current situation to highlight what Christmas means. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Dec 14, 2016

    In all honesty, I might not be the best person to rate/review this particular issue. Holiday specials - especially ones that insert themselves into otherwise separate storylines - almost always make me feel like a Grinch. But in spite of my personal bias, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #65 was still able to make my small heart grow two sizes (but not quite three). Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Dec 15, 2016

    Ultimately, this is an unapologetically silly and incredibly superficial festive romp, and should be viewed accordingly. Its entirely skippable if youre of the bah humbug persuasion, but is well worth a look if youre not. Read Full Review

    truthfully i wasn't expecting a whole lot from this issue. i just figured i't be just a silly/fun throwaway issue!

    there definitely was plenty of silly/fun moments, but there was also a LOT of sentiment and heart to be found in the issue as well!

    the timing and pacing in this issue was perfect! it played out like a very well done comedy special.
    the art was also TOP NOTCH!

    anyone looking to come on board with this series, would probably find this issue as a very good 'jumping-on' point.

    the epilogue was also very emotional. sweet and sentimental, it was the perfect conclusion to this issues.

    A much needed pallet cleanser after the emotional roller coaster that was issue #64. Christmas party comics are usually garbage, but not this one. It's a good excuse to touch base how all of our favourite secondary characters are doing. The overhead shots are a smart way to show the many conversations taking place throughout the party. The issue comes to a close with a touching moment which most readers can relate to from our own childhoods, which makes it all the more heart wrenching given the current rift in the family. It certainly put me in the mood for the holidays.
