Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #10

When Spider Bytez starts kidnapping people from the surface and dragging them down into his lair the Turtles hop into action, but are soon caught like flies in his web. Thankfully Michelangelo's plan to cover himself in pizza, based on his presumption that the disappearances are he result of the Kraang working with ghosts and Big Foot, proves to be the key to getting the Turtles out of another sticky situation.

Mikey slips out of the webs and distracts the villain, allowing Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo time to escape and free the hostages before taking Mikey's lead and further infuriating Spider Bytez with a few insults of their own.

The goofy adventure (set bizarrely around Valentine's Day for a late April comic) is fun while highlighting another of the Turtles' weirder villains. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #10 also includes a Mikey back-up story where the Turtle's one-track mind races his brothers into a desperate situation (which turns out to be pizza). Worth a look.
