Join Tom Waltz, Dan Duncan, and TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman for the start of a wild ride!
It's been years since I saw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and, man, have I missed them.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 1 Change is Constant begins with a confrontation between Splinter and the Turtles and Old Hob and his gang. Raphael isn't there, though.
This story also shows us a little bit about the origins of the Turtles and Master Splinter. Now, because I was young when I watched the series, I only remember bits and pieces about the show. Therefore, I don't really remember if they discussed how Splinter and the Turtles got their names. If they did, I didn't see that episode, because I remember wondering why they were named after artists. This comic book tells us why.
April O'Neil makes a welcome cameo, and I was kinda hoping to see Shredder too. Maybe he'll show up in the next issues.
Thanks to NetGalley and IDW Publishing for providing me with an e-ARC. Publication date of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 1 Change is Constant is on February 28, 2012.
- Too short and not much happens until the end of the book.
READ IT IF:
