Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles # 11


It has been almost a year since the debut of the IDW reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The past 10 issues were a blast to read, and with an 11th issue dropping out tomorrow, will fans embrace it like the previous chapters? Short answer is YES! But Keep reading to find out the details. (The Reviews contains some spoilers from the issue, so be careful)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #11 continues the Captive Splinter and return of The shredder Arc. The comic book opens where with Splinter fighting member of the foot clan, one after the other, no one was much for the rodent master, not even the mutant Alopex or the Ninja Karai.

Back to the turtles new hideout (April’s 2nd time around antique shop) a mysterious figure is eavesdropping on 3 of the brothers. Before we could recognize who this mystery girl is, Michelangelo (who went to get some pizza)  attacks the lady, who seems to have brought friends. the other Turtles join the fight, but were quickly stopped by Casey Jones, who recognizes these mysterious people as the Purple Dragons, and the girl is Angel, a Casey jones friend.


Without spoiling the rest of the issue, let’s just say that the book finishes on a great cliffhanger, that assures the “epicness” of next month’s issue #12.

The story is cowritten by Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman, with a script by Waltz, who needs no more proof that the turtles are in good hands with him.

Dan Duncan is drawing the turtles, just like previous issues, however i find that some of his art during this issue, when it comes to the turtles themselves, is a bit off. Some of the panels depicts the brothers with, somewhat, elongated heads, which can be a little bit distracting. Other than that, duncan delivers when it comes to action, add to that, his style of drawing the Shredder is great.

Colors are as usual vibrant and lively, which is what we have gotten used to from Ronda Pattison.

While not as awesome as last month’s #10, Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles #11 offers a great story, good art and an epic cliffhanger,  that built on the previous issues and is definitely leading to some interesting stories.


Score: 8/10
