Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series: Splinter


Picking up in the middle of the Splinter/Foot clan fight from Issue #10 of the ongoing series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro series Splinter, focuses on the Rat master, as he remembers his previous life as the Ninja Hamato Yoshi.

Written by Erik Burnham, the issue sheds more light on Hamato Yoshi, and how he was always angry before he gets to meet the beautiful Tang Shen. The story also shows a bit of rivalry between Oroku Saki and Yoshi, but fails to sell it as cause of hatred between the two, which was my only complain for this issue. Without spoiling the story, the issue does give more depth to Splinter and confirms the reincarnation aspect of the series.

The art was done by Charles Paul Wilson III, who does a decent Job drawing the characters, especially Yoshi and his master. The art still feels a bit under the quality which we got used to from the other artists who have previously worked on the series.

All in all a good issue that adds more story to our favorite Rat, Splinter. And again a must read for any IDW TMN comics fan.

Score: 7/10
