I'm an Eastman and Laird fan, but the new stories are fun. With a young April training alongside them, the turtles fight Shredder, Dogpound, the Foot clan, Snakeweed, and the Kraang. There are the usual puns and jokes - and lots of pizza. Whether they are fighting off what looks like a zombie horde or trying to prevent Snakeweed from making more killer plants, there is no bad language. It's not always easy to find comics/manga that are free of swearing, even if they are rated for all ages. This is a series that is safe for younger fans and older readers can still enjoy it. The extra pages of artwork are a nice bonus.
I would recommend this to TMNT fans of all ages.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley. Publication is scheduled for January 21, 2014.
