TMNT 1-4 bags and boards

What do you guys use to bag and board your original TMNT 1-4? I currently have mine in magazine sized but they?re looking pretty old. I use Mylites 2 and fullbacks for my standard comics and I love them but not sure what size would be best for 1-4. My local comic shop sold me super gold and they?re too small unfortunately.

I had mine CGC graded a couple years ago, but before that I just used magazine bags.

Magazine bags, but they're a tad too large. Hard to find something that fits them perfectly.

I've been wondering this myself with the impending release of The Last Ronin.

I was hoping to find something that fit better than magazine size and preferably in Mylites but it?s looking like magazine might have to do.

Same here. I know Last Ronin is oversized but I?m not 100% sure what size they mean. Guess I?ll wait till after #1 is out and see if magazine mylites will work for both 1-4 and Last Ronin.

If they are 9" x 11.5" then they should just be about tall enough, but you'll have wiggle room left and right. By "oversized" they mean larger than standard comics.

At least one of those issues, when I bought it, someone had done a "custom" job on the bag/board: they took a magazine bag and board and just trimmed/folded it to fit the book better, with scotch tape over the cut seams. It's a way to go, I guess. If you really don't want it to slide around that's probably all you can do.

The other oversized issues I have are just in magazine bags/boards. They're packed so tightly in the long box that they're definitely not going to be sliding around. Unless you handle them often it's probably fine just to use magazine bags.
