Top TMNT stories

It's a topic as old as time on forums but I thought you guys might get a kick out of my latest blog. It took me a fair while and it was something of a labour of love.

That was a pretty great read. I was iffy about some of the rankings but it's a top 81 list, I doubt any of us could've done better. I think it's a bit of a shame that some of the newer, post-#50 IDW stories weren't included but some of the earlier, more forgettable ones were. I'd take the Trial of Krang, Desperate Measures, Chasing Phantoms, the most recent Christmas issue or Mikey's Macro (or any Macro, actually) over April's Micro any time of the day and I doubt anyone would disagree with me on that. Even still, I really enjoyed reading the list, huge props to you for making it.

Thanks for sharing! The Drome could use more points of discussion like this. Hopefully I can contribute something of this caliber sometime.

Going to have to read this later but just wanted to say I’m glad to see it posted.

Edit: Neil Gaiman writing TMNT??
Wow, great piece of trivia.

I know I will get a lot of hate for saying this....(Especially from Andrew)

Mirage City at War story arc is overrated. It's the most overrated of any TMNT story.

I thought return of the Shredder should have been number 1. I was shocked to see the Batman cross-over on that list at all especially that high, nothing wrong with the story, but I did expect cross-overs to be on the list especially bc I didn't see Usage on that list.

City at War is my favorite piece of TMNT. I can understand why it doesnít work for everyone, but it perfectly captures what I love about tmnt.

Great list including a few I have never read that I still need to track down.

Love that so many TMNT Adventure stories made the list.

I would definitely include TMNT Adventures Dreamland story on my list as well as TMNT 37 , Twilight of the Ring. Those are some of my favorite stories of all time not just for TMNT but in comics in general. They are also some of the first things I ever read though so the nostalgia factor is pretty high.

Thanks very much man. Of course we are all going to have our different favourites. Some random little comics connected with me through nostalgia, others just caught me at a good time etc. Trial Of Krang didn't do much for me sadly. Each to their own and all that.

No hate from me, each to their own. There are several Usagi Yojimbo stories on the list if that's what you mean.

Both Future Shark and Terracide were awsome.
