Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures Volume 1 was a fun read! I loved the Ninja Turtles as a kid – I had a HUGE crush on Michaelangelo (I am pretty sure he is the reason my favorite color is orange) and I wanted to be April O’Neil (I went to school for a minor in journalism – if I stuck with it I might have been on my way!)
Volume 1 has 4 different comics in one – The Return of Shredder parts 1 & 2 as well as The Incredible Shrinking Turtles Parts 1 & 2. It was nice to take a trip back to my youth with some familar characters. They seem to be trying to revive the franchise, hopefully they will do it justice and get a whole new generation interested in the series!
I really dislike reading ebook copies of comics because they are often very hard to read on my Nook – but when it comes to TMNT, I just couldn’t resist. I did end up reading the books on my desktop though – where I could stretch the books over my dual monitors and was able to read and follow along with the story and dialogue no problem (The pages looked GREAT zoomed in!)
The stories were great too – the ninja turtles helped get bad guys while at the grocery store… but then the bad guys dressed as the ninja turtles and went around telling everyone they were the “crooked ninja turtles” to start trouble. Of course, the REAL turtles didn’t let them get away with this for very long! In the other they were shrunk and captured – ut oh! But it is the turtles so you know they’ll come up with some original way to get out of the trouble they get themselves into.
I am looking forward to checking out some of the future volumes of TMNT “re-presentation” comics, but I might just have to buy them and not rely on digital copies 🙂
I received a free e-copy of this compilation in order to write my review. I was not otherwise compensated.
