Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #18

Trapped inside a sinking Kraang Laboratory at the bottom of the ocean Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #18 offers the conclusion to last month's story as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael will have to put aside their feelings and work alongside Tiger Claw, Razah, and the bug-eyed Baxter Stockman to survive.

Of course the solid (if unexceptional) adventure ends in the villains betraying the heroes (just as Raphael predicted) but the quick thinking of the Turtles allows the group to make it home safely while sending their enemies on an unexpected side trip which is sure to infuriate them even more.

The holiday-themed back-up story offers a bit more enjoyment as Mikey freaks out discovering he's been chosen as Raphael's Secret Santa. However, knowing his brother so well, Mikey eventually comes up with the best present anyone could ever give Raph for Christmas. Worth a look.
