Collecting the first 12 issues, this volume is the perfect way to catch up on the new ongoing series. Raphael wanders the streets of NYC in search of food, shelter, and answers. His brothers and Master Splinter vow to find him but a mutant alley cat named Old Hob and his gang of criminals keep getting in their way. The very core of the Turtles' family is at stake as a new origin of the TMNT is revealed!

    an excellent start for a new generation of Ninja Turtle comic fans!
    a bit reminiscent of the Urban Grit of the original Mirage series, the New IDW Tmnt adds a brilliant twist and deeper backstory of Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki spanning all the way back to ancient Japan.
    this is a great jumping on point for anyone looking to get into this series.
    my only wish is that they'd include the short story "a lot to learn" from the IDW Tmnt 30th anniversary special to fit in-between issues #4 and #5.
    but the anniversary special is still able to be found online, and is very much worth picking up!
