Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3 Review

Some of you may be familiar with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, known by most people from the 80's TV show. This however is not the 80's TV show. Some of you may remember my review of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #59", that comic took inspiration from the the show however the comic were looking at today take inspiration from the original Mirage Comic. As such this is more dark then the TV show. Which means some fanboys won't like this.

The comic opens with Raphael and Cassey Jones stopping a mugger from stealing a old lady's purse. When they try to return it the women runs away in terror because of Raphael, you know, being a giant turtle. Cassey says they should of thought that through and they talk. Apparently Raph is not himself since he has amnesia.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Turtles are sparing. While Splinter is watching them he remembers how he found them. Back when he was a normal rat he found a cat (Apparently named Old Hob) trying to "dine on Turtle soup", the soup being the mutagen. He manages to save 3 of them but the other one somehow got away. He falls down into the sewer, and fall unconscious. He awakens to find himself and the Turtles mutated.

Back in the present Splinter send the 3 turtles to find Raphael. While out searching Donatello and Leonardo get in an argument about weather Raph is alive or not. Michelangelo breaks it up, and it' around hear I noticed a problem. One of the elements they took from the old comic is the fact all there mask's are the color red. The problem is in some parts it's hard to tell the turtles apart.
I'm so confused!

Anyway the comic ends with Raph and Cassey noticing two people fleeing from the cops, and they beat them up. Only to be confronted by a gang lead by the Cat that tried to eat him,who is also mutated. How the hell did he become the leader of a gang anyway? This comic is good. The story is interesting, and new. The art is pretty good as well, even if it is a bit over-stylized. Overall this comic is pretty good, however if your a diehard fan of the 80's TV show you might not like this.

Rating: 3/5
