    Thanks to Ciaramella and Wachter, Old Hob has proven to be more of an interesting character than we thought. This issue is the perfect companion for anybody enjoying the current IDW TMNT series. If only the main series was done this well on a regular basis. A Turtle fan can dream, cant he? Read Full Review

    While this issue doesn't make me feel like Old Hob is anything more than a goon incapable of becoming a big bad, it's still quite an entertaining read and the artwork is remarkable. Plus, the ending is sure to make any TMNT fan anxious. All I'll say is once the origin story wraps up, we're brought back to the present and this cliffhanger will lead right into TMNT #23 aka part 2 of 'City Fall!' I'm sure it's not mandatory reading for the big story in next week's new issue, but it'll definitely help and give you a stronger connection to Old Hob -- a character who will clearly play some kind of role in the events to come.

    I've been patiently waiting for this issue and I can't even say that the hype let me down because there was none. Some people may have enjoyed this issue because of Hob's tragic background being revealed, but that doesn't make the rest of the story good or forgivable. Maybe Hob will show some potential in the next issue of TMNT, but otherwise I think he's as good as dead in terms of character development. Retire him next to animated Bebop and Rocksteady because he's not much better. Read Full Review
