Super Mutant Turtles manga (in ENGLISH)

Alright, as you may or may not know, now that Adam Winters has gotten ahold of all 3 volumes of the Super Mutant Turtles manga, I've begun translating them as I did the Mutant Turtles Gaiden manga from a year ago.

I'll use this as a catch-all thread to be updated every time I've completed a new batch of pages.

As of this post, I've just finished the first 22 pages of Volume 1, which you can view HERE.

Unlike Gaiden, Super Mutant Turtles is a complete 100-page story and not broken up into chapters. So I'll bring it to you in 20-something page increments, hoopefully cut off at decent cliffhangers.

Anyway, I intend to go through all 3 volumes as fast as I can. Comic reviews on my site may be scarce for some time as I endeavor to complete this project, though.

I'll keep you folks posted with every batch I complete. I know that there's limited interest in these things, even among the hardcore Turtles fandom, but for those of you interested in the TMNT's Japanese-exclusive adventures, I hope you enjoy!

I really appreciate how we get to learn so much information on how the Fred Wolf cartoon universe turned into the Super Turtles anime OVA. The random Shredder costume change, Neutrino kingdom, and Light/Dark Mutastones now make a whole lot more sense given the context of this background.... well, that's assuming that an anime-ized take on a franchise named "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" ever made sense in the first place.

There be me, on here but yesterday, thinking to myself that the comics section was a bit quiet at the moment, what with no actual comics kicking around and whatnot. Then I come on tonight, only to find but THREE 'online comics' for me to feast my eyes on. (This, TMNT v Spawn, and Will Tupper's one.) Ain't even read this one yet, p'raps I shoulda waited til I read it before I posted this, but oh well. Cheers!

Funny, though, that all three of yesterday's "releases" were all unofficial (in varying capacities) and offered up by the fans.

I guess if the official comics are currently in limbo, it's up to us to keep things going for the while.

So this manga is like a prequel to that 2-part anime OVA? Is that anime story in manga form too?

It basically covers that bit from the beginning of OVA1, where they "flashback" to how the Turtles and Shredder got the Mutastones.

Volumes 2 and 3 cover the rest of OVA1, but with additional material and in a different-yet-similar fashion than the anime (same *basic* storyline but with a lot of differences).

The fact that this all makes relative sense to me is kinda sad.

Only one update away from completion of Volume 1 and I should have those pages to you some time next month. But for now, enjoy the Turtles vs. Super Mutant Bebop and Rocksteady!

I'm not really following your post, sorry.

If you're asking if I can do some in color, there simply aren't any vintage TMNT manga that were published in color.

There were story pages (two page magazine spread montages) that were published in color; Adam has a collection of those. But they were dull episode adaptations and not new content, so nothing I'd be very worthwhile to do.

Hidetsugu Yoshioka's story pages from Comic Bom Bom are rather nice and you can find a collection of them at the Transformers Allspark website, but I don't have any first hand scans of those and the ones online are too small for me to read the text, so i can't get to them, I'm afraid.

No. There was another manga that was in color and had Casey Jones in it and a more evil looking Shredder, and the art work was based on American comic book art
