    “City at War” starts off with a bang in TMNT #93. Things are really starting to ramp up and this is going to be an exciting arc leading up to issue #100. I also like that they are using the letters pages to interview the creators about the start of TMNT at IDW. It is very interesting to see how all this started and what some of the original ideas for the series were. Any TMNT fan is obviously not going to want to miss out on this jarring issue!

    Long-time turtles fans will find plenty to love, and issue 93 is also a perfect jumping on point, too. The series is kicking off the "City at War" storyline, which finds Karai escalating her hostilities towards Splinter and his coterie. Read Full Review

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #93 might not be the best place for new readers to jump in, but it is great for lapsed readers looking to return. Waltz and company have put the pieces in place for this to be an epic story " all that needs to be done is to execute over the next seven issues. If the writing can step up to the level of Wachter and Pattisons art, this City at War has a good chance of surpassing the original. Read Full Review

    an alright issue. things are finally starting to move.
    a few of the altercations and interactions felt overly forced, but it was still effective to the story.

    i like that more focus is finally being directed to the title characters. i'd like to see them become more of the driving force to the plot, rather than just being reactionary.

    unfortunately the preview of this year's IDW TMNT Free Comic Book Day issue gave away what would have been a nice surprise ending. but at least i know to be on the lookout for that comic so i don't miss anything for my set of single issues.

    Dave Wachter's art is probably some of my favorite from this series stable of artists.
    he has a great sense of drama, and really more

    I've come to the conclusion after reading this issue that following Slashes death in issue #87 that the Micro-Series should have probably been folded into the main series or the main title should have have been placed on hiatus until the mini series had been completed. 

    My chief complaint about the series in the recent month is that it has been running in place and all forward momentum has all but ceased. 

    That changes with issue #93. This is the first time in a while that the story seems to be actually be going somewhere. 

    This is gonna be a longer review but I won't be getting into heavy spoilers. What I will say is that I implore any fan of the series to take the time and get the TMNT-Macro series tha more

    Momentum picks up even if it had to be forced to some extent. What happened to Jennika lacked the punch I thought it would she just doesn't feel like a character I care for that much yet.
