“To messrs Eastman, Waltz, Curnow, Santolouco, Smith and anyone else who has worked on this series over the last four-plus years, I tip my hat to you. You guys and gals have put together something truly special, and I hope you realise how much us Turtle fanboys and girls out here appreciate it. I think I speak for everyone when I say that I absolutely cannot wait to read the next fifty issues. Turtle power! ” – Craig Neilson-Adams, Big Comic Page (on TMNT #50).
“It’s amazing how serious this franchise is being treated by IDW; it shows how passionate these creatives are about the characters and the world.” – Erik Gonzalez, All-Comic (on TMNT #50)
“While this issue is essentially made up of an extended family/war council meeting, it’s the smaller character-based moments that really help to sell the story.” – Craig Neilson-Adams, Big Comic Page (on TMNT #61)
