    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 4, 2013

    Even though City Fall was a Shredder-focused story, the ending made it crystal clear the publisher still has big plans for the character (and if you haven't read it yet, go do so right now). While SECRET HISTORY OF THE FOOT CLAN established his new origin and the primary series made him even more intimidating, this micro-issue does a remarkable job giving us a character-driven look at the infamous individual while also expanding his story. And, to top it off, there's some seriously pleasing melees in the issue. If you've already seen the star rating, then you should know by now that I strongly recommended this to anyone who has been digging IDW's TMNT. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Dec 4, 2013

    The Shredder installment of this incredible micro-series never quite rises to the brilliance of Issue #3 (Old Hob), nor does it make itself required reading for the main TMNT series like Issue #4 (Alopex). What it does accomplish, however, is adding an incredibly beneficial layer to one of the main villains residing in its universe. This issue isn't the best in the series, but it definitely belongs in a group that has delivered some of the best stories to the superbly crafted modern TMNT mythos. Read Full Review

    All in all this is not a comic I would suggest for readers to start reading on if you want to get into the ninja turtle comics. However this is a interesting read for the fans of ninja turtles who have read the stories 'Secret of the Foot Clan' and 'City Fall'. It shows how Shredder will never change and is always doomed. No matter where he is, he will always try to conquer and destroy no matter the consequences which will ultimately lead him to death. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Dec 4, 2013

    I still think Alopex and Hun are my leads for best Micro-Series here. I will admit that I was hoping for more with Shredder's issue. It was predictable. He has such a long history that can't be summed up with one issue, so I was left wanting more. Read Full Review
