TMNT Adventures Volume 16

The final volume will be released on December 11th, 2018. Looks like the cover is not new but I think it looks like the original from issue #72.

They can still release Year of the Turtle and the other specials/mini's they skipped over.

Cover's just a placeholder, I assume.

Another website is using the same cover.

Yes indeed.

That’s what I thought at first. Being a placeholder could be very true. Considering all the other covers to my knowledge are original to these reprints.

But then I noticed the original Archie logo location in the corner and the UPC code spot on the cover are both removed. For some reason that was making me think this is the final cover. But it might not be.

This does represent the last of the "core" book that IDW is has to reprint (er, or at least is willing to reprint), though, yes?

Shouldn't be long then on a "Forever War" announcement, if there is to ever be one.

I mean... Maybe they're interested in making Forever War but I doubt it. Something tells me IDW higher ups don't care for this series at all, that something is just how crap these reprints are. And make no mistake, these reprints are awful, beyond the Muhammed/China shaped hole. It looks like scans and the paper is cheap as hell. It's not even good scans either, they actually went with misprint copy of issue 54. The only reason I think IDW even bothered completing the Adventures reprints, is because it turned some kind of a profit, despite the shoddy work that went into them.

You're actually better off printing out scans by yourself. I'm dead serious, the scan I found for issue 54 doesn't just have the missing page, it looks cleaner too!

This is hurting my emotions. If only!

This is all true. But being an Archie TMNT completist, I've been suckered into buying every volume.

If you get these on instocktrades you only pay $13 per book. That is a good price for what they are. Only three bucks and some change per issue.

Itís a convenient way to just quickly read some old turtle books and not have to worry about keeping something in mint condition. Give it to your kid, take in on the bus or reading material in the bathroom.

If quality got improved price would go up. Iím not sure how many people would buy these at a $49.99 price point. Especially with over a dozen volumes to complete the set.

For once I have to agree with you on something. I have the Archie stories printed in the UK comic and the quality looked clearer.
