    There's action and humor and pretty much everything fans have come to expect from another solid issue of TMNT. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 5, 2018

    The main story arc with the Rat King that is continuing in TMNT #83 is honestly not the most intriguing story. While parts of it are interesting and fun, it still feels like the Turtles are just treading some water while bigger things are set up in the “B and C storylines.” I still have no clue what the actual plan of the Rat King is. Dave Wachter continues to be a great match for these Pantheon “god” characters as he catches their intricacies well. TMNT #83 does promise some big things to come and develop out of this issue so it has me excited to see what comes out of it. Read Full Review

    Bits and Pieces:All that being said, it's still the Turtles, and a not great issue is still tons of fun, so if you usually enjoy this book, then, by all means, pick it up, just lower your expectations accordingly.  Read Full Review

    i read it, found it mildly entertaining. didn't love it.
    the story arc with the Pantheon isn't really all that interesting that it can be dragged out and spread thin like this.
    The Rat King is leading a bunch of generic no-name children to their doom. not very compelling.
    at least we actually get to spend time with the Ninja Turtles, so it's much better than the 'Trial of Krang' and 'Invasion of the Triceratons'. but that's not really that impressive a boast.

    Michelangelo shines in this issue and gets some really funny lines. there was also a dialog between April O'Neil and Baxter Stockman with a very promising set-up. hopefully the plot starts moving. this series track record of slow burn story leading to a lukew more
