This collection continues IDW's reprints of the original TMNT comics. I love the size of the book as it really allows you to appreciate the art more. The annotations and commentary are excellent and build interest in the stories. As for the stories themselves, they are fun stories and dark at times. I especially like how the stories slowly build up without the reader realizing it until the end. Very much worth getting and makes you want to read the rest of the stories a whole lot more. Luckily Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Volume 3 is already out and 4 and 5 are coming soon.

This is the second volume of the turtles collection that contains
the beginning of the story of the return of an iconic enemy when
Leonardo gets his shell kicked by the Foot and a resurrected Shredder.

The turtles, April, and Casey Jones are forced to flee April's burning
apartment (and the city in general) to Casey's grandmother's cottage
in Massachusetts. (this is where the '91 movie got most of its plot,
including the narration of the turtle's conditions by April)

This volume also contains the rest of the one-issue micro series
(Raphael's micro series issues was contained in the first volume)
along with an interesting (but very weird) story on time-travel and
dimension hopping.

An AWESOME read, and a must-have for a fan of any of the incarnations
of the TMNT.

This is missing three issues. IDW decided that due to the stories not being done mainly by eastman and laird, that its ok to leave them out. IDW needs to understand that when you call it an ultimate edition, it means every story. Not just major story lines. But , this is ok if all you want are major story lines. So, its the purchasers choice.

These Ultimate Collection books by IDW of the older Eastman & Laird Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are just outstanding printings. Never before has such a nice collection of these early issues been printed, from the awesome wrap around graphic hardback cover, to the large size printing of the pages. Here in Vol. 2 you get Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #s 8-11, as well as One Shot issues "Michaelangelo," "Donatello," and "Leonardo." On top of the reprinted issues, you'll get extra annotations by original creators Kevin Eastman, and Peter Laird. If you're a hard-core Ninja Turtles fan, these are the best collections currently on the market by far.

I don't need to mention how much of a Turtle fanatic I've been since I was a kid, but I'm reading the comics here for the first time in continuation. I wasn't a fan of the first Ultimate Collection, thinking the first issue was pretty good but the following were lackluster. They seemed too cheesy and a product of their time.

However, things get really interesting when the Turtles are forced from their New York sewers. It involves more of a plot that stretches many issues instead of the usual bad-guy-of-the-week. The build-up to Shredder's return was amazing, and I'm glad I'm reading the roots of the Turtles after so many years.

I have to make a mention about the annotations, however. What's great about these is that they have notes, mostly from Eastman as he's heavily involved with these collections, but he just doesn't know how to do annotations. To me, from a literature point of view, an annotation or commentary is something that'll add understanding to the text/panel in reference, or some interesting trivia. But something like "This was fun to do!" or "Yeah, look at him do that!" (okay, I adlibbed, but I'm not far off) is just a waste of paper and ink.
I'm not trying to be rude, but when there're tons of these little remarks it becomes tedious to read through `em.

In any case, I still love these sets because of the beautiful formatting and large paper.

I loved TMNT collection one and this is more of the same classic black and white action and humor you would expect from the turtles. This collection takes 7 TMNT comics and combines them with the thoughts of Eastman and Laird (co-creators) in between each issue. I had never read these before so it was great and convenient to pick up the collections and read these back to back, just wish each collection had more comics, but the prints and values is great for any fan of the new series, old live action movies or a look back at the original comics. Thanks for the fun!

I've been looking for something like this to complete my collection of Eastman & Laird Mirage Turtle comics for awhile now. The price on Amazon is much more reasonable than what a typical comic shop will charge (if you can find it). There are only a few things that detract from the overall presentation:
1) Made in Korea. At least it is not made in China, but I'm a consumer who will pay a premium for items made in the USA.
2) The format hides some details in the two page spreads (mainly battle scenes) that you can see in the comic and previous soft cover collections. Nothing huge or anything that detracts from the story, but it is a shame to have such a large format and not be able to see some details.
3) Seems that Laird wasn't as keen on adding his comments in the annotations. The vast majority of the comments are from Eastman.

What I like about these books is that they are several of the books compiled into one, they're hard cover and they are still in black and white. I still have the original Mirage (the original original) comics, so I'm comparing these to those. However, I am mostly interested in just the stories, and not the collectibility of each book, so I'm wanting to consolidate the stories into one book. These books are perfect for that, and what's more, it's like they come with a director's commentary, having both Eastman's and Laird's comments for each page.

I haven't actually read it yet, I've cracked it open, but I have started reading the first volume. This is a must have for TMNT fans, people that like behind the scenes stuff, or comic creators. it's over-sized which is nice and as an indie comic creator ([...][...] ) I have gained a respect and love for black and white art, and when you have the behind the scenes commentary for each issue, it really is just a must have. I have 1-3 and 4 pre-ordered.
