Fans of the new cartoon should really enjoy themselves
Fans of the current cartoon should really enjoy this first issue. When Donnie invites April to accompany him on a salvage mission at a military junk yard Leonardo strong objects saying she isn't ready. Refusing to listen, April gets caught causing the Turtles to have to find a way to rescue her without alerting the United States Government that there are human-sized mutant ninja turtles walking the streets of New York.
The creative team of Kenny Byerly and Dario Brizuela do a good job of capturing the look and feel of the characters and providing a fun first issue that gives April a large role and jumps us right into the action without the need for an origin story.
One final note, I'd actually rate this a 4.5 instead of a 5. You can find more of my reviews (with images) on RazorFine Reviews
