Back in the 1980’s, no one property dominated televisions and TV more than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles did. No comic company personally could tell the animated adventures of the turtles in book form better than Archie comics taking the Turtles from your TV to the comics.
What made these issues so great was the inclusion of all the wacky figures that may or may not have shown up in the cartoon show.
IDW collected issues 17 to 20 of the Archie comics. Within that series, there’s an awesome adventure with the Turtles and April hanging with Man Ray. At times, it feels like a public service announcement but these books were geared toward the youth of the late 80s and early 90s.
Overall, if you have kids and/or you had own these issues as a kid, I give this collection a solid 3/5. It’s fun, it reminds me of a bygone day that maybe we can relive via nostalgia.
