    If youve made it all the way to issue 85 then youll already be familiar with the hallmarks of this series, and the blend of sheer consistency and impressively nuanced storyline development ensures that this series feels as fresh now as it did all the way back at issue one. Another solid issue then oval heads notwithstanding. Read Full Review

    TMNT #85 is an issue jam-packed with A, B, and C plots that are all equally interesting. This issue felt a lot longer than 23 pages ina great way. I cannot praise the writing team enough on how they keep developing these characters in this world and have let them change throughout the run of this series. TMNT #85 sets up a lot of interesting story points that I can't wait to see unfold. The art is good even though I have some minor hang-ups, but I still love Brahm Revel's dynamic, sketchy style. It brings a nice new “flavor” to the TMNT IDW world. Read Full Review

    Of all of the books that I read monthly the one that tends to have the best character development for its leads is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The series also has some of the best written & motivated villains of any ongoing series. 

    What's frustrating as a critic is that you see books constantly being rebooted and events coming and going. On the other hand, you have a series like TMNT chugging along and getting next to no attention from the mainstream comic press. 

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #85 is a great single issue. The turtles get a call from April regarding a disturbance at a museum. One of B more

    the things i enjoy about this series-
    i really like how Waltz is finally focusing more on the Turtles.
    there are finally fun moments again, Michelangelo is getting to be light-hearted and fun loving.
    humor is steadily coming back to this series, and that's a very good thing.
    the Turtles are also finally getting to see some action, though not enough for my taste.

    the pacing on the other hand is slowwwww.
    Donatello said in issue 70 that was thinking of turning their old van into a battle vehicle. we finally catch back up with that concept in issue 85 and he’s not even made any real progress with that.
    this is very slow burn storytelling, with a series of lukewarm anti-climaxes sprinkled here and the more
