'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time' collects 4 issues of the series. Each issue is a different time period, and a different team of writers and artists. I kind of liked it.
Issue one dumps us right in the middle of our turtles runing from Utrom riding dinosaurs (Utrom is the race of aliens that Krang is from). A character I wasn't familiar with named Renet shows up and seems to be responsible for the time displacement, but it seems like she's still having problems. The turtles find themselves in medieval Japan and seeing a chance to change their lives by altering an event from their past. Aboard a sailing ship full of privateers, they help a crew fight off pirates, including one wielding a strange, futuristic weapon. The final issue finds them in a strange future with other anthropomorphic creatures. This strange future may have been caused by one of the guys, so soul searching is required.
My review copy was only 88 pages and the page count is listed as 104, so I'm not sure what I'm missing. There is little extra narrative explaining how this happened or why it's happening, but I don't think that's a problem. The art varies wildly between issues, but I also don't think this is a problem. I thought it was a lot of fun.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
