‘TMNT: New Animated Adventures, Volume 4’ – TPB Review

By now, I’ve become somewhat more familiar with Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Just the other day, I read a comic book based on two episodes taken directly from Season 2 of the hit TV show. But, after reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures, Volume 4, I’m glad someone has taken that similar style of Nickelodeon animation and created their own comic book adventures out of it. Or in this case, multiple writers and artists have done just that!

In Volume 4 of these New Animated Adventures, April takes a trip to the zoo (and fights multiple Kraang in the meantime). Raph learns a lesson about overexerting himself. Don has a major bug problem. Mikey learns to control his focus issues. Leo finds himself in a sticky situation without his brothers. Even Splinter has his own adventure . . . with video games! And, Ice Cream Kitty—wait—Ice Cream Kitty!? Yes. Apparently, that’s a mutant I never thought I’d see . . .

Although each story is short and sweet, I commend each writer for still being able to capture us as readers in each individual storyline. Landry Q. Walker especially tells a nice tale for each of our four pizza-loving heroes. And, with a team of four artists including Dario Brizuela, David Alvarez, Chad Thomas, and Marcelo Ferreira, they really know how to make each story feel and look the same, a task not easy to accomplish. Bravo to all!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a whole new generation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to catch up on, including two and a half seasons (Nickelodeon is currently in the middle of Season 3!) to watch on TV. Looks like my 2015 is off to a busy start!
