Nice size - larger than standard comic book size (smaller than the Absolute editions).
Jonathan Nichols
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate Collection Vol 1 contains issues 1-7 and the Raphael one shot from the original Mirage B&W series.

Overall a must read not only to fans of the ninja turtles but comic book fans in general.

I'll have to admit I was pretty hesitant about purchasing this book only because I already owned these stories in two other tpb collections but my curiosity & fanboy inner demon got the best of me. Besides the hefty price tag it's a very nicely put together hardcover book thats been too long over due for fans of the original Mirage Studios comics. The art has been enlarged so the panels truly almost seem like they're exploding off the pages plus in between each issue there's commentary from Eastman & Laird respectably. Truly looking forward to more volumes down the road including the legendary "City at War" storyline, more material from the non Eastman & Laird run, the classic anthology series "Turtle Soup", Image Comic's run, & really, just about anything & everything in between. A big thanks to IDW Publishing this awesome collection.

So happy to receive this in hardcover! I'm not sure about the other reviewers but i did not notice a degradation of the print quality for the large pages. I enjoyed it and plan to purchase the rest! best nerdy coffee table book ever!

Heads up to those that may not be aware; this IS a black & white book - NO color on the inside! That is how it was originally published, so it is supposed to be that way! This is a great story of the origins of the TMNT. Nice hardback cover that is in full color. Cool little commentaries at the end of each "issue" from the creators. Nice size - larger than standard comic book size (smaller than the Absolute editions). This is a must have for any comic book or TMNT fan. 5 stars!

Nice book, with very clean, sharp images. Lots of great info from Peter Laird after each chapter as well. Only downside is that the hard cover got a little dented during shipping. Other than that, this is a high quality book containing some of my all time favorite stories. Recommended for any old-school TMNT fans!

Having been a long-time fan of Ninja Turtles in many of its incarnations and in particular the first movie (which I watched dozens of times as a kid), this collection is absolutely great if you're first getting into the comics like me. And also if you're a fan of the first movie, you should know that the comics are even better, particularly if you're a fan of the darker elements.

The original comics are amazing, even if it does delve into a bit extreme and sometimes laughable territory (such as when they end up transported to another planet). But they're quite entertaining and addictive regardless of the subject matter, and that's what really counts.

What I also love is how they developed each of the Turtles' personalities as time went on. Donatello is always the crafty and technologically-oriented one, Raphael is the angry loner type, Leonardo struggles in many situations to keep them all together, and Michelangelo is of course the comic relief, and I also love how he and Raphael's relationship ends up being close. Raphael becomes quite protective of Michelangelo, even if it is only subtly hinted at in these first issues.

Where the movies left a lot of stuff out and changed a lot of things, the comics really expand and tie everything together.

I highly recommend this collection for first-time TMNT comic readers. All of the artwork is presented on bigger pages and panels than the originals, which makes it much easier to read and follow along, and the commentary by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman on each issue is also very interesting and provides greater insight into the conception of the Turtles and the artwork.

This is really a must-have for any fan of TMNT, and I can't wait for the second collection to come out in February!!

Just so future buyers know, the cover is color, but the comics inside are B&W.

That being said, them being in B&W does not hinder them in any way. In fact to me it gives them a more dirty, grimy feel which is perfect for how I picture the ninja turtles.

I own some of the color prints of the original comics but am missing some. This collection puts them all in one really sweet hard cover.

I absolutely love it. And have been keeping my eye out for some art that I may use as my next ninja turtle tattoo.

Chances are that if you grew up on TMNT in the late 80s, you were probably really sick of them by the early 90s. And that, I imagine, is what has kept the original Eastman and Laird collections from Mirage out of print for almost twenty years. Thankfully, IDW has filled the nostalgic demand for old Turtles comics and put out this great volume. With a trim size larger than even the oversized early Mirage issues, and printed on sturdy, bright, uncoated paper, I doubt these b&w stories have ever looked so good. And while the art is rough and chunky, it does seem to benefit from the larger format.

As for extras, Eastman and Laird provide some interesting notes, and DVD commentary-style annotations. Its clear that these guys were just having fun, and just happened to create one of the most successful comic-book properties in the last thirty years. Full color covers kick off each story, however, I was disappointed that the back covers were't also included, as almost all of the early issues had wraparound covers, or illustrated back covers. And for completeness' sake, I would have enjoyed seeing later printing and early collection covers, as there is some nice art to be seen there, and would have made this "ultimate" collection truly comprehensive.
