Random Thoughts On... The Original TMNT Comics

How much of the original Mirage TMNT comics have you read?

In all honesty, not a whole lot... but I wouldn't say I'm completely oblivious to them and I am catching up in some form or another. I've read a fair share of Volume 1 stuff (mostly oddball issues and the first and final few of that) and I thought there was some good stuff there when it stuck with continuity and didn't stray too far from that path. I don't believe I ever sampled the short-lived color series Volume 2 beyond maybe one or two chance issues. Dwelled a bit into the Image-published Volume 3 and the less said about that, the better. The only Mirage TMNT I followed with any regularity was TMNT Volume 4 and the second series of Tales of the TMNT. And I can honestly tell you that I enjoyed Tales a hell of a lot more than Volume 4. Too each his own, I suppose.

Back during my younger years, I probably only had a handful of Volume 1 comics (including some from the concluding City At War storyline) and only got around to read the earliest comics thanks to some of the recent IDW published collections. Not to say that I didn't enjoy them, but it was just a matter of money being something of a premium and now it's the comics themselves that are something of a premium.
