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!

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.

I don't own the original Mirage books, they are getting to be too hard to find and I was a fan more of the animated cartoon in my childhood. I later discovered the gritty original incarnation of the TMNT as Eastman and Laird created them.

Obviously, these are black and white, or printed with a total of 4 monocharomatic shades of grey and "sketchy" or gritty compared to modern comics. But it is amazing what the guys were able to create with such rudimentary format. Immense time went into layout, the artwork, many full page or 2 page spreads, etc. Being repackaged like this in oversized hardcover (color cover to boot) is a dream come true for some guys.

The books has some cool commentary or annotations by none other than Eastman and Laird themselves, harkening back to their early days as creators. Sometimes they are filler, but more often they give some interesting insight into what was going on behind the scenes as TMNT was getting off the ground and before it became the licensing giant for cartoons / movies / toys that it became.

Getting back to the art, I have some buddies have have some of the original issues, and digital scans of originals. Reportedly, some spots were cleaned up, or lightened as needed to re-release this in the best form possible. I take their word for it, and say that just to make the point that this might be THE best way to read these issues possible.

I hope to eventually own Volume II onward.....

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!!

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!
