‘TMNT #22 – City Fall:’ Advance Comic Book Review (To Trap a Turtle)



TMNT 22City Fall is the first big event storyline in IDW’s newest Ninja Turtle series. Two years ago, IDW brought back Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman to oversee a new story that takes the best elements of everything that came before and incorporates them in an action-packed cowabunga-fest. They’ve taken their time introducing the turtles, Shredder, the foot clan, other rival gangs, and fan-favorite character Casey Jones. Now that all those elements are in place, it is time for Eastman and series writer Tom Waltz to take all their toys out of the toy bin and tell an epic adventure.

City Fall is an incredibly fun Ninja Turtles story that has all the classic elements that fans of any previous TMNT incarnations will love. It has enough of what makes the Turtles great to feel familiar, but it also has enough new elements so that it never feels old or played out. It is also a great jumping on point, so if you have been interested in trying out the new TMNT, this is a great place to start. Even better, it will probably entice you to go back and read the series from the beginning, which will be a great way to keep yourself excited and engrossed in Turtle lore while waiting for next month’s volume.

TMNT #22 is an action-packed adventure that really pushed the Ninja Turtles to their limits. It is both a great start to a big summer event book and a great introduction to the new revamped Turtle series. If you’ve ever been a Ninja Turtle fan, now is the time to pick up this book and follow the adventures of these awesome heroes in a half-shell! Turtle Power!
