This issue is nothing but pure action and Leo showcasing why he's one of the most talented ninjas among his brothers. There's quite literally only 2 pages of set up ("Let's split up and find Splinter!") before Leonardo comes face-to-face with a sea of blade wielding Foot ninjas. We get a look inside Leo's mind and it's nice to see he's every bit as determined and heroic as he acts on the exterior and you've got to respect his struggle to keep focused int he face of impossible odds. However, if you're not currently a big fan of Leo's, I sincerely doubt this is issue is going to sway your position. Oh, and then there's a little showdown with (a man I can only assume to be) The Shredder. That alone is worth the $3.99 price tag.
There's really no reason not to pick this one up if you're like me and over the moon about IDW's run so far. This latest Micro-Series issue doesn't bring any new developments to the table, but sometime it's alright to take a break from the plot and appreciate an issue packed with hand-to-hand combat from start to finish.
