Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4

More pieces of the Turtles' origins are revealed as Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello finally locate their long lost brother Raphael. By the end of the issue, and the first arc of the reboot Turtles comic series, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be united once more.

Issue #4 is heavy on action as most of the events unfold during, and directly following, a battle between Raphael and Casey Jones and Old Hob's gang. The two are hopelessly outnumbered, but lucky for them the other turtles show up to lend a hand (and a katana, and numchucks, and kicks to the face).

We'll have to wait and see how this new version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles weaves April O'Neil and other characters like the Shredder further into the comic, but for a first arc it's been a fun ride. Now let's see what kind of trouble the turtles can get into now that they've been reunited. And, if you can find it, I'd definitely recommend picking up the variant cover by Turtle co-creator Kevin Eastman. Worth a look.
