And this is the best book to get if you want to start reading them.
Boom
I had a collection of Eastman & Laird turtles as well as 90% of the Archie Comics TMNT Adventures comics from the start of the series to the end.
Jeremy R Tucker
If you're a Turtle fan, I'm sure you'll really enjoy the series, especially if you read the older comics.

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.

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?

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: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collection gathers up the first 4 issue arc of the IDW re-launch, re-imagining of the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles saga. It's meant to be placed next to the Ultimate TMNT collections that compile all the original stories by creators Eastman & Laird during the classic Mirage days. What makes this volume a bit underwhelming is that it adds as "bonus" content the pencil sketches to each of the 4 issues contained within. That is drastic overkill. This collection should've contained the first 4 new micro-series issues of the 4 Turtles with a handful of pencil sketch pages. For the MSRP it's overpriced for the content within. I got the book using a giftcard, utilizing reward points with the book already some 35% off MSRP. If you can get it in a similar manner it's "worth" paying under $20 for it but do not dare pay more than that as I see it.

Haven't picked up this TPB, but I am avidly reading the monthly issues. I've been a TMNT since I can remember, and this series is definitely staying true to its roots.

To avoid spoilers I won't go into too much detail, but so far this series has done a great job of re-envisioning the classic characters with a bit of a spin on them. So far it has stayed more closely to the old Mirage comics (thankfully without a hint of going off on any sort of outer space tangents) but incorporates some ideas from the cartoons as well. There's a slightly new spin on the origin story, which I think it needed. This first story arc has a new mutant cat character as the main antagonist, but there are foundations being laid for some of the classic villains to come to the forefront as the TMNT find out more about who they are and how they came to be.

Fans will not be disappointed!
