I wasn't sure where to post this query and this seemed the most suitable spot.

I'm actually in the midst of buying me a LOT of TMNT comics - just ordered a load of them from Mirage Studios who are, as I assume you all know, having their clearance sale before finally shutting down. I've put in the cash, placed the order and now I hope they have all the ones I want in stock. (fingers crossed!)

BUT I also plan to pick up some collected editions of the Terrapin Teens's adventures and now need to decide between:

1) The Works series:
http://www.amazon.in/Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Volume/dp/161377625X/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A05378423NJE7Q5XCN3XZ

2) Or the Ultimate series:
http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/1613770073?refRID=08V96MN3VFRK9RMQHWV6&ref_=pd_ybh_a_39

They'll cost me about the same, but I can't decide which would be better. The content is basically the same, but as you guys know too well, it's the details that matter!
The Works has the Pizza Box thing going and Laird seems to be more involved (from what I can tell) but the Ultimate series seems to be better quality based on some reviews and has Eastman [i]and[/] Laird on commentary - opinion in reviews on the better visuals also seems to vary.

Being that I'm totally at sea and have been going back and forth on this for a month now (extended in part because I really wanted some input from here since I don't have any TMNT fan-friends :tcry:) and I really want to just get on with it.

So... any and all input/advice appreciated.

Thanks all!

i've been collecting both series, but the B&W Ultimate collection is more satisfying with the notes included.

i stopped buying 'the works' after volume 3 when the coloring job started to get really lazy and lackluster.

but that's just me. :D
