It's good to be green! The original TMNT series from Mirage Studios, collected in order and in color for the first time!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a mainstay of pop culture, and it all began with these comics by co-creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. Go back to the very beginning with the Turtles' first encounter with the Foot Clan and their mysterious leader

The original comics are great; I should have read these a long time ago.

Tohle je taková zábava, že se mi tomu ani nechce věřit. Miluju jak se scénář občasně low-key trefuje do superheroes aniž by to bylo jak pěst na oko nebo otravný (tvym směrem se koukám, Garthe), over the top originy postav, grafický násilí a akci. Proboha tohle je komiks, kde lítaj potoky krve z robotů, zničí se půlka města aby se zachránila dodávka s hračkama, v jednu chvíli jsou želvy v kanále v NY a druhou se mlátí ve vesmíru s humanoidníma dinosaurama. Jak by to vůbec mohlo bejt ještě lepší?! ...more

I flat-out loved this. IDW has done a service for TMNT fans everywhere with this volume. Essential for Turtle fans.

Old school fun. The chapters where the turtles jump time/space/dimension do have some parts that drag. The addition of color makes it more accessible to readers who are not too fond of black-and-white art. It's interesting to see how much of this inspired the product throughout the decades (movies, cartoons, etc). Cowabunga! ...more

So far a fantastic start to the explosion the franchise became. The first movie is so close, but the tie ins make you think of the 80's cartoon -if you didn't read this first. It's much more than you would think based on the children's spectacle it has become. Michael Bay really missed a fantastic opportunity to bring this back to its mature roots; it would've been amazing. Still could be, and no doubt will be again someday. I recommend this for anyone who wishes for something beyond what kids s ...more

Great work by Eastman and Laird! That's the type of job where we see the freedom for a creative team to do the things they love! Great characters, great stories e beautiful action scenes. I missed the blue, purple e orange, though, but it's ok! ...more

I had no idea what to expect with this series, but that wowed me. The first issue is nice enough, you get the origin of the turtles and Splinter as they face off against the Shredder and his soldiers. But from there it starts getting weird. Robot dogs? Aliens? Dinosaur gladiators? It just keeps getting weirder! There's a great humour to it all, from slapstick comedy to pop culture references, while still being action-packed and mature. My favourite part was when each turtle was forced into a big ...more

I wasn't sure how much I was going to like this going in. As a child of the 90s, I've got my fair share of TMNT memories, but they're mostly isolated to the movies and TV show. I've only ever read one volume of the most recent reboot and I don't generally enjoy comics from the 80s all that much.

That being said, I really enjoyed this! I was expecting it to feel dated. It was dated in the sense that it looks and feels like the 80s but the storytelling struck me as something you'd expect out of a c

This just reminds me how great the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise really is. The original movie's more grounded approach compliments the comics well. Kudos to the young Eastman and Laird for creating this on their own. If something more crazy happened at the end I would definitely purchase volume 2, but right now I am on the fence. This color classic is truly for the older fans, but that's ok. ...more

I read this ages ago in 1990 and was fascinated by it. Reading it with color only added to my enjoyment. This volume had the microseries I never got to read at the time so it was an added bonus.
