Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

#1 Posted by WBNeve (6 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been a huge fan of TMNT since a kid, now I'm trying to locate the old comics from the original series. I noticed on a search here that their is collected volumes starting at volume 1 with issues 1-62. Does anyone know where I can find these? Are they even released yet?

Best bet would be Amazon for any of the old collected editions. IDW is pretty good about releasing old stuff from previous publishers when they take over or aquire the license for something that has a long past of being published. They have collected and released a ton of the old Marvel and Dreamwave runs on Transformers and GI JOE. SO I'd think in about a year or so they'll be putting out some of the original Mirage Studios comics in collected editions.

old issue off TMNT are notoriously hard to find....best bet would be to search local comic book stores, Amazon, and Ebay

I think he's just trying to track down the collected editions, so he can read them. If nothing else there is a teenage mutant ninja turtles website out there that have a bunch of the original run up for reading on their website. Can't think of the site right off hand but if you google search teenage mutant ninja turtles it should be one of the links on the first 2 pages of search results.

I assume IDW will make them available digitally after they collect them and put them out in trades, which I assume they will do since they did it for Transformers and GI JOE. I really hope they do, it would be a nice addition to my trade collection.
