Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Villain Microseries Volume 1, collects 4 issues that tell the back story to some of the turtle's foes. An issue each is devoted to Krang, Baxter Stockman, Old Hob and Alopex. Three of the stories are tenuously linked, the fourth one is not.
We learn about Krang's conquest and the history of the body he uses. We learn how Baxter Stockman works for Krang, and wants to overthrow him. We learn how Old Hob went to Baxter for help and ended up being used by him. They all hate the turtles, but they all hate each other as well. The fourth story is about mutant fox, Alopex and his dealings with Shredder.
They are all standalone, with very little crossover, so it's not a cohesive story, but it is interesting to learn about some of these villains. I'm not sure I knew much back story about a couple of them. Recommended for turtle fans, and I like the direction that IDW has taken with the newer turtle universe.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this graphic novel.
