Leonardo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

    (Mirage, 1986)
™ and © Mirage Publishing, Inc.

It’s Christmas Eve, and all of the Turtles are gathering with their friend April for a holiday dinner. That is, all the turtles except Leonardo. On his way to the gathering, he is attacked by practically every ninja in the known universe. Leonardo is forced to fight ninjas armed with swords, arrows, bos and a host of other weapons, over rooftops and through city streets. Back at April’s house, the rest of the group is left wondering where he is. A happy ending is not guaranteed, as the return of a major foe is revealed.

This book is a one-issue spotlight on Leonardo, possibly the best fighter of the four fighting turtles. Here the “cowabunga” and pizza-crazed versions of the turtles are left to television and the movies. Like most stories created by the Turtle originators Eastman & Laird, this tale is filled with violent action, relationships, humor, and violent action.
