    I haven't read any Ninja Turtles comics in years but that didn't keep me from being very impressed with this issue. If this level of quality is on their other TMNT books, i'll have to check them out. Next month you can continue reading about the villains of the TMNT universe focus shifting to Baxter Stockman.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villain Microseries #1does its job exceptionally well. And despite my own feelings about this story being unnecessary, the creative team absolutely delivers as they blow away any preconceived expectations. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This is certainly a surprise hit that is worth going out of your way for. Kevin Eastman's cover is my favorite of the week and would make one cool poster. Read Full Review

    Although this issue doesnt achieve any real astounding revelations for Krang, it still serves a purpose to keep TMNT fans happy. With Henderson rendering a silly-looking character so well, this is an issue worth picking up for any fan. At the end of the day, thats all that matters, right? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Matt Eurice Apr 19, 2013

    This is a book for Turtles fan's plain and simple and if you aren't interested in learning more about Krang you can probably pass this one up. For hardcore Turtles fan's though it's a must buy and if you've ever wanted to know what the hell was going on with the Brain in the robot, stop by your local comic shop and pick this one up, you'll at least be entertained when Krang rides in on his mounted lizard.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Apr 17, 2013

    The Krang story is a nice introduction to comic readers that may not have caught up on all the latest Turtle adventures. It's a good short primer for Krang, but it doesn't explore his origins too in-depth. If you're a lapsed reader or just a big Krang fan, this one is for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 17, 2013

    I've been more than transparent with my love for IDW's TMNT reboot. They've taken a more than familiar product and given it plenty of respect while making changes that feel fresh and interesting. The Micro-Series was a brilliant way to give individual characters some much appreciated extra attention and development and, up until now, I've loved every single one of them. Now, I know many on this site view a 3 star rating as a bad thing, but keep in mind, I view the star system as being like Netflix's -- a 3 means "okay," and, that's exactly how I felt about the issue when I was done with it. While it looks superb and the dialogue is sharply written, Krang's origin story is just a wee bit too out there for me for me to take seriously. Read Full Review
