Time has been irreparably damaged and the fabric of reality is torn apart! Only a trip to visit the Time Lords in the 79th dimension holds any hope. But is time-traveller Renet still alive? Are the Turtles? Is anyone??

    Despite the sort of messy and cliched ending, BEBOP AND ROCKSTEADY DESTROY EVERYTHING was a tremendously fun read that left me on the edge of my seat quite often. Bates and Weaver know these characters and really nailed their friendship; that was honestly my favorite part. Bebop and Rocksteady's camaraderieprevailed through time, they only needed to see what the other brought to it. The Turtles never felt like an imposition and acted as a great vehicle to explore the effects Bebop and Rocksteady were having on the timeline. Bates and Weaver know what they're doing and I hope to continue seeing them in the pages of the Ninja Turtles. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Jun 29, 2016

    There's a pleasant sense of closure that doesn't negate the possibility of future consequence and adventure. This mini succeeds as a mini because it pulls elements of the past into a complete story that looks to the future. I don't expect this to be a crucial read for fans obsessed with canon. But as a supplement to the turtle-focused adventures you're most accustomed to, Destroy Everything gets the job done. It's funny and surprisingly touching when you consider it's about a pair of dangerous, time-displaced lunatic freaks. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Chris Cooper Jun 30, 2016

    Has it been a resounding success? No. It's had some bumpy moments, though they might be cleared up when reading it as a trade paperback. Has it been entertaining? Yes. Multiple pairings of both mutated and unmutated idiots charging around time whilst the turtles (and Pepperoni!) try to help Renet fix it couldn't be boring. Read Full Review

    We sincerely hope that there are more Turtles-centric offshoots in the works, as there's plenty of entertainment to be had in TMNT's vast universe. As a representative of that quality, though, this series doesn't stack up. Read Full Review

    Bebop and Rocksteady #5 is 20-plus pages of dumb, stupid fun. Read Full Review

    Honestly, I am disappointed this didn't grab me as much as it did. There are so many moving parts, where I am not really sure where I'd begin to make the series better as a whole. Even after the 3rd issue picked up the pace a little bit, it's just a shame it didn't last until the very end. Maybe it was too late anyway. Read Full Review

    didn't have the insane explosive end that i was expecting (the last 2 issues were utterly insane!) but it still managed to wrap thing up nicely. . . . . . . . . . . there were some really funny moments that i really did enjoy a lot! . . . . . . . . (like, bag yer face!) . . . . . . . . over-all this series was definitely a fun read that i'd recommend to fans of the Ninja Turtles, and especially to fans of Bebop and Rocksteady.

    I'm still kind of missing the what the deal is with mummy Renet, overall a fun and charmingly convoluted series.
