Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Micro Series — Krang #1 is, simply put, a delight. It’s about 50% kick-ass action tale and 50% the fun Ninja Turtle type comic that you love. Put that all together and it’s 100% good!

I really didn’t need a Krang origin, but Joshua Williamson convinced me otherwise. I can’t believe I just read a comic about a living brain who goes Rambo in order to prove himself to his father, but I did. And I really enjoyed it. Williamson writes an interesting story about focusing on Krangs younger years and his quest to earn the respect of not only his father, but his fellow…brains, I guess. It’s a lot of fun, surprisingly intense in places, but it’s all around awesome. There’s great elements of fun, surprise and we get an honest to God resolution for the story. The only downside? No Ninja Turtles.

Mike Henderson’s work here is brilliant! The overall art is fantastic, and I’m really impressed by his line work. Even though 0% of this book is set on Earth, he really makes the alien planets and tech look like they belong in the Ninja Turtles universe. He does some great action pages (considering it’s a brain crawling around) and also some pretty awesome expressions for being that don’t actually have faces.

This book is a real treat for TMNT fans. It will also stand on it’s own as a good sci-fi book. For whatever reason you’re reading it, you’re going to enjoy it.
