Unless you’re a purist who just has to read everything you could be forgiven for skipping this book. There’s some kind of really annoying apprentice to a time lord who steals a magic scepter and transports the turtles into another comic book. It’s annoying and makes no sense and is full of silly dialogue and horrible writing.

On the other hand the beginning of the book also features the ending of the arc begun in book one and continued in book two so if you’re heavily invested in that particular

This isn't my favorite collection of original TMNT issues, but if you're a fan, it's required reading. This volume has a few cool features:

By book 3 the artwork is becoming a lot more refined, and the characters are growing into their roles.

The TMNT return to Earth, only to embark on several short, strange (even by TMNT standards) adventures.

In the last story, we learn that at least one of the Turtles (possibly Michelangelo) listens to Metallica.

My brother bought me this one, and gave it to me the night before Christmas. I don't remember much about it past that, as I don't remember the story being too memorable, and reading the other review, it appears it really wasn't. Doesn't change what it spawned though.

Tercer tomo de la inconclusa edición argentina de TMNT. Repite ISBN con el segundo tomo. Termina con un especial navideño.
