Things are picking up, I loved the flashback sequences and the the development of the individual Turtles' personas.

And coloured Ninja Masks are here!



If it weren't for Krang being an inter-dimensional brain-being hanging out in a torso I'd consider the reincarnation story-line as far-fetched as Donatello does buuuut...Yeah, may as well just roll with it, dudes.

Introduction:

Now, I have to tell everyone this: I am a huge fan of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!” I may not have the toys or the video games to prove that, but I sure as heck got a lot of movies and DVDs to prove that theory! So, after I read part of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s original 1980s run of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (the comic book series that

When this new series started, I told myself "I'm not gonna buy a Ninja Turtles comic, I'm a grown-ass man." Ironic, as I have no problem picking up issues of Superman or Adventure Time. But I remember these characters almost solely from watching the cartoon after school.

But then I kept hearing good things about the book, so I bought Volume 1. And it was fun!

Volume 2 continues the trend. Krang, the alien brain thingie, wants the formula that turned the turtles into mutants. Using henchmen, both

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enemies Old, Enemies New' is an origin story for the rebooted series, but it feels like I knew all this stuff before I read this one.

This is the rebooted Turtles, so their origin is a reincarnated people combined with experiments from Baxter Stockman's lab. We learn this as Old Hob is trying to track down Splinter. He has a flashback of his times in medieval Japan. We also learn about Casey and April, a bit.

Things heat up as Baxter Stockman is displeased with Old H

Old Hob is still hunting the Turtles to get to Splinter and this time he has reinforcements from Baxter Stockman in the form of an army of mousers! Vol. 2 continues the story and ties up a couple loose ends from vol. 1 (mainly for me the question of why don't they just take Hob's blood). We also learn a little bit more about their past lives in Japan in this volume which has been very interesting. The use of Casey Jones was also better and I found myself enjoying his interactions with April. The ...more

These two stories were my first written meeting with certain mutated turtles. I've seen plenty cartoons about them when I was a kid, but somehow never got my hands on the written stories. When I've picked these two books up I though it would concentrate on some event or certain characters. Instead, I got a set of short tales from characters past and present times. Even some from their past lives.

I received a copy of these books from the publisher via NetGalley.

I received this book for free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have always loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Ever since I was five years old, when the television show debuted in the 1980s. My younger brother and I were obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We had all of the action figures and toys, which we played with extensively. The original television cartoon series and the original movies from the early 1990s will always hold a special plac

This was as enjoyable as the first volume!

Kevin Eastman is doing some interesting tricks with the narrative to kind of acknowledge the original TMNT series that came before this reboot.

Familiar characters are getting set up: Casey Jones, April O'Neil, Baxter Stockman and the Mousers.

I will also say that he is doing a good job at establishing the dynamics of the turtles themselves as well as sowing the seeds of conflicts to come. I never realized the emotional truth of each turtle, and to be fair

This book started off at a slightly slower pace than the previous volume but toward the second half it started picking up. Once again I want to stress that this origin story is different than what you'd probably be used to in TMNT lore if you're a fan of the 80's toons, original movies, or 03' show. However it is very refreshing to see something different. While I do prefer a story staying true to its roots, I can appreciate when liberties are taken as long as it is sensible and is meaningful.

Volume 2 continues on with the great storyline, introduces the feudal Japan elements, first Krang, and April meets the Turtles. Fast flow, art style fits, and the story is really well done.
High recommend!

After reading the first volume I was left with a lot of questions. Vol 2 pretty much answers all of those questions.

I am loving how they are combining the original comics, the tv show and new material into one.

This is looking like a great series right now.

Starting the year off right with Ninja Turtles! I don't think I enjoyed this volume quite as much as the first but it was still a fun read (though I may need to go back and reread the first volume since it's been a while. I may update this review after doing so). I liked that despite the fact that Raph was unruly, Leo actually seemed to have more of a rivalry going with Donatello so far. Which makes sense since they seem to be the two oldest in this series, which is something I've always been a ...more

We finally get some more background on the previous lives of our favorite turtles and Master Splinter as Old Hob's time with Baxter Stockman is running out when he's given one last shot at getting the goods he requires: Splinter's blood.

With Dan Duncan returning as the artist, this volume goes forward in more ways than one that helps build up hype for Volume 3. I can't wait to sit down and see where Kevin and Tom take me next.

Now this is a TMNT comic! It's been too long since I've dived into the world of the turtles. While this is a slightly different take on the classic turtles, I love it dearly.

We get a bit more detail into the backstory of these turtles as well as meet a few old (not so friendly) faces.

I can't wait to see what the next Volume brings.

Nothing too new or crazy. Just another well done take on the Ninja Turtles. Baxter Stockman, Krang, Foot Clan and Mousers all redone with slightly altered origins. If you like Ninja turtles or these villains you're bound to enjoy this volume.

The good:
-We can seea big part of the TMNT Mythos starting to appear in the comics.
-Krangs.
-All the multi dimensions and time parts.
-Is good to see the brothers fighting the mousers.

The bad:
-The dialogues were too corny at parts.
-I miss Splinter's wisdom.

So the second one was good. Glad it ended with a cliff hanger. Not sure I like how Casey introduced April to the turtles. It seemed very rushed. Plus, how did Casey get to meet all of the turtles? Through Raphael?

This story was just a little too... well... WEIRD for me! Okay, not that the entire concept of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn't sufficiently weird in and of itself. But this version throws in a whole reincarnation aspect that I found very hard to buy into. That whole spiritualist side just didn't seem to jive with the general freaky science experiments vibe of the story. I did enjoy the usual banter between the brothers. My favorite line (poor English aside): "Cripes, who'da thought Nerd Ninja ...more
