Casey and April struggle to overcome the Rat King’s machinations. Will they be able to make their way to the eldest Pantheon sibling and find the answers they are looking for?

Why It’s Hot: What IDW has done with the TMNT license over the past few years has been nothing short of phenomenal. One of the best parts about these books has been the publisher’s willingness to try different things with the turtles and their supporting cast. That includes this four issue starring April and Casey. It features an amazing creative team that is turning out a criminally underrated title. Whether you’re a fan of TMNT or not, this title is worth checking out.

ALSO RELEASED THIS WEEK: Batgirl #44, Captain Marvel & The Carol Corps #4, Fight Club 2 #5, Nameless #5, Wolf #3
