Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series #4

In much the same way Marvel's ".1" comics have futhered filled in stories and focused on aspects not covered in the main title, IDW's "Micro Series" has done the same for their current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

Each issue of the series has centered around one of the Turtles. With issue four we finally get to the team's leader, and my favorite TMNT, Leonardo. This issue picks up where the current series has left off with Splinter captured by Old Hob. While out on patrol alone, Leonardo finds himself ambushed by an entire army of Foot Ninjas at an abandoned construction site.

You definitely get your money's worth in terms of action as almost the entire comic showcases Leo's fight with the ninja and their mysterious leader (who may, or may not be the Shredder). In terms of writing and art I don't think it measures up to the the main title. However, if you have a favorite Ninja Turtle, this series has given you a chance to grab a comic centered solely around them. That's not too shabby, even if it is slightly overpriced. Worth a look.
