Check it out dudes! In “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” #22 of IDW Publishing’s ongoing series, Michelangelo’s reading Tom Waltz and Guiu Vilanova’s “After the Fire” 100 Page Spectacular. Page 8, panel 1.


“TMNT” #22 co-written by Tom Waltz & Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman is a MUST READ! The obvious (but is it really?) plug aside, the writing’s solid and accessible — Mateus Santolouco’s artwork is the grand slam sealing the deal for this book. It’s energetic, fresh and apparent he knows what the hell he’s doing in portraying expression and emotion, but most importantly the Turtles as individuals.

If there was only one TMNT comic book you read in your life, I would have said it’s “TMNT: Secret History of the Foot Clan” #2 any time before tonight. Not anymore. Now it’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” ongoing #22. The creative team lights this thing on fire, presenting the best elements from all corners of the TMNT mythos in one action packed and emotionally charged issue.
