TMNT-Animated-16_Cover-RICowabunga Dudes! Yet another issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures hit our stands, and though I must sound like a broken record when it comes to the pros and cons, I can’t help but get excited about reading this series. As ever it keeps the flair of the Nickelodeon series brilliantly, with both tales being very unique and extremely entertaining.

Beware the Batman writer Matthew K. Manning returns to write the opening story, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time writer Paul Allor writing the second. Both writers do an amazing job of capturing the excitement and energy that TMNT fans desire, and though I usually find these short tales to be way too quick, I found these both to be very fluid. Between the mystery elements of Manning’s tale, and the incognito attempt of Donny during Allor’s, there is also a very diverse element, with both being very enthralling.

Chad Thomas and Marcelo Ferreira as every handle the art on this amazing series, with Thomas working on the first story, and Ferreira the second. Having worked on so many issues of this fun series, both artists have managed to consistently produce exciting visuals, matching the look of the Nickelodeon series brilliantly. As every both artists manage to capture the emotion throughout brilliantly, with the awkward character expressions conveying their scenario perfectly. Series colourist Heather Breckel also yet again does a wonderful job, with her vibrant palette helping to add yet another layer of fun to this great series.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures is a series that I personally can’t get enough of, as though it’s not the best series out on the stands, it’s certainly one of the more entertaining. This issue however also shows great writing skills, with both tales having a very fluid series of events. Highly recommended.

I am a nerd, and nerds are cool. Why? Because they get to go to magical places, and enjoy wonderous stories that could never happen in real life. In particular I've always had a keen interested in comics, having accumulated a vast collection over the many years. I eventually decided to utilise my vast knowledge of comics as well as my many opinions and become a review. This is were UTF came in, as after spotting my blog reviews they offered me a spot on their elustrius review team. One that I have been more than joyous to fill and have loved being a part of ever since.
