Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #12

The main story of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #12 features a wide range of supporting characters all suspecting the Turtles' attempt to retrieve a package from the Post Office must make it incredibly valuable. Not realizing Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo are only attempting to retrieve a training video Michelangelo sent to a reality TV-show, Karai, the Kraang, Pigeon Pete, and Jack Kurtzman all attempt to get their hands on the mysterious package whose true contents are only damaging to April's self-esteem. The chaos provides plenty of humor and action ending with Mikey getting his just desserts.

The issue also includes a short back-up story involving April outwitting the Turtles to share the final two slices of pizza with Splinter and another chapter of the LEGO adventures of the Turtles showcasing their origins in LEGO form for the first time. Of the two, the LEGO tale is the more interesting back-up tale, but it's the main story that makes this one worth picking up.
