“Pizza Prize”


Down in the lair, the Turtles are fighting over the last two slices of pizza.  April comes up with a solution to prove who is truly worthy of the slices.  She challenges the Turtles to find a buoy in the shipping channel south of Manhattan.  The first one to reach it and send her a photo on their T-phone gets the pizza.

The Turtles immediately race to the buoy, swimming out into the stormy waters to reach it.  They arrive at roughly the same time and all attempt to send their pictures, but can’t get any reception.

It doesn’t matter anyway, as Splinter and April have both helped themselves to the last two slices.  Splinter tells April that her use of deception and misdirection have the marks of a true ninja about them.

Turtle Tips:

*This story is continued from “Postmark Panic”.  The story continues in TMNT New Animated Adventures #13.


Cute.  Short.  Not much else to say.  I do like Ferreira’s art, though.  He draws a really sassy-looking April and his layouts are very energetic and off-kilter.  I hope he gets a shot at one of the longer form stories soon.

Grade: N/A (as in, “New Animated Adventures #12 was apparently brought to you by the letter P.  Postmark Panic, Pigeon Pete, Pizza Prize… Alliteration sure is fun!”)
