Format: Hardcover
If you haven't bought your copy of IDW's TMNT Volume 1 yet and are still deciding between the paperback copy of the hardbound, the hardbound copy won't let you down. I don't own the paperback copy, so I can't do an accurate comparison, but I can tell you what exactly is in the hardbound copy: pure awesomeness.

The hardbound version is slightly taller than the IDW TMNT Ultimate Collection Series, although not as wide (about 3mm less) and definitely not as thick (it's only 4 issues, plus bonus, so understandable). Included is the first four issues of the new IDW series, 9 pages front and back of art (18 pages total, some are duplicate pieces shown in pencil sketch/B&W then in full color), then the first four issues of the new series again, but in blue pencil/black ink sketched in Kevin Eastman style complete with notes on the side (see photos above). Unlike the TMNT Ultimate Collection Series, it is not done full commentary style, which is not bad, but I kinda expected more. However, it was really neat to see the whole comic process and then compare it to the completed result. One thing I would definitely like to see more is of the artwork gallery. I follow a good number of the comic artists on deviantart.com, but it's a whole different thing to see the actual artwork on paper...in a book. It's amazing.

All in all, it's a nice reboot of the original Eastman and Laird series. I'm hoping to see more hardbound copies of the TMNT series by IDW in the future! Highly recommended for all my fellow turtle fans.

Its an excellent retelling of how the Ninja Turtles came about. Hoping Michael Bay follows this formula for the movie though I doubt it. Bastard.

Format: Paperback
Like many in their 20s, I grew up with the Ninja Turtles. The amount of toys I owned was rivaled by only my cousin. Of course, like many, I grew up with the TV show, though I owned a comic or two. Many years later, I regained an interest in comic books and picked up the 2009 reprint of the TMNT Collected Book Vol. One. After reading it, I wasn't impressed. The first few issues were fine, but then it got too bizarre (as if ninja turtles weren't bizarre enough). Perhaps it may have been because I read Watchmen and Usagi Yojimbo around the same time, but I didn't think Eastman and Laird's brain child wasn't that great. I began to think that maybe the series appealed to only children. Still, I finished the book, but it was set away after that.

But now there's a reboot.

There are so many reboots now of myriad franchises that I didn't give TMNT a second glance. But the first issue recently became free on comiXology, and I was almost out of comics, so I downloaded it. Boy, am I glad I did.

Because much of the universe, stories, and characters have been established in the Turtles' New York, the writers of the new series were able to make things fresh without changing too much (thank goodness the Turtles aren't aliens). The writers were able to utilize the wide array of characters to make more "logical sense" of the world, placing the creatures in a more modern era, and making it enthralling at the same time. If you're a Turtle fan, I'm sure you'll really enjoy the series, especially if you read the older comics. Even if you're not a fan, but at least familiar with them, you may nonetheless find this reboot engaging. The authors take full advantage of the older comics and change things in a way that fittingly works. Dare I say the reboot rivals the original?

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On a deserted block a street fight between two sets are taking place. One is led by an adult sized cat by the name of Old Hob, and the other is led by the talking rat Splinter whom is supported by his three Ninja Turtles. The battle is quick and although Splinter's side is victorious. They still leave as failures. -summary

I'm not going to debate whether the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were in dire need of a full reboot as far as the comic series was concerned. However, I will point out that I knew the comic franchise was in good hands when IDW mentioned they were going to debut the series again. IDW has done a splendid job rebooting classic series like these, that either made it to animated TV or got their start there. This newer take on TMNT definitely feels quite fresh yet familiar at the same time, as it retains the gritty and edgy personality of the Mirage Studio's series. This volume contains issues 1-4.

The plot follows the three Turtles Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Donatello, as they search for Raphael whom has gone missing. Their searches leads them into battles with Old Hob whom harbors a serious grudge against Splinter.

For starters, even if one hates the Ninja Turtles this is still a great series to sink some teeth in. This title is extremely welcoming to newbies of the comic whose only experiences are the animated shows and movies, as it features a new origin and still uses everything that came before as its pool source. Purists will definitely find their interest piqued as it goes on paying homage to the original series in different ways. The series moves at a real good pace keeping a steady dark tone.
