Review: IDW TMNT Classics Vol. 2

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics Volume 2 has come out.  This is a mix of stories of Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stories.  In Volume 1, we had one issue plus a bunch of stories that could be found in other books, but together could be found in Shell Shock.  Now Volume 2 has come out, as they are focusing straight on Mirage issues right now.  Exciting to see in color, though still wishing these were all going into the awesome books that are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate Collection.

Review: TMNT Ultimate Collection Vol. 2

IDW Publishing has been doing a great job with keeping us Turtle fans on the edge of our seats.  We’ve got so much coming out that any fan can be excited about.  Though one of the coolest things they’re doing is re-releasing the Mirage Comics as they were in large hardcover books known as the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate Collection”.

Review: TMNT The Ultimate Collection Vol. 1

Throughout Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle history one thing that we’ve seen a lot of is reprints of the early Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mirage Comics.  First Publishing was the first ones to really take up the comics and start putting them together as graphic novels.

Mirage: Goodbye Facebook

Since October 2009, when the news was released that Viacom bought the Turtles.  Fans have been watching more and more of the stuff we know of Mirage disappear.  With the official Turtle website now down for maintenance, the Mirage comics closing down, the few workers still with Mirage only being there a few days a week to handle the orders that come in for their back stock, and now a good bye on their Facebook page.  It’s hard to watch, though it’s not the end just the beginning of a new road.

IDW now behind TMNT Comics!

On April 1st, IDW Publishing announced that they have received the rights to publish new Ninja Turtle comics!  The curious thing I find about this is that they’re doing comics based on the ‘original’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as they keep bringing up Eastman and Laird in the press release.  So are their comics going to be based on the original Mirage story line or the original cartoon story line?
