Predictions for upcoming covers, these things can't come out fast enough!

Vol 11- Triceritons
Vol 12- Bishop or Karai
Vol 13- Casey
Vol 14- Jennika

Volume 11: Casey
Volume 12: Old Hob or Bishop
Volume 13: Karai

That's my guess.

Yeah, I'm still sticking with my previous guesses:

Volume 11 Casey/ Triceraton/ Rat King

Volume 12 Old Hob/ Bishop

Volume 13 Karai


That being said if the current pattern of odd numbered volumes featuring turtles on the cover continues then 11 could be Metalhead Mk2 and 13 could be Jennika, although this could mean way too many yellow spines for my liking.

So I've been trying to work out where the remaining back-up stories would fit in
and this is the best I can figure for each of them:

U12-15: Prey: After U15
U16/17: Triceratots: Before 076
U18: Mutagen Maintenance: Before U23
U19: Kingdom of Rats prelude: Before 081
U20: Through Red Eyes: After U20
U21: How Woody Spent His Triceraton Invasion: After 078
U22: Dangerous Waters: Before 085
U23: Nobody Cares: After U24
U24: Life at Sea: After U24

I think the order Nines has put them in is probably correct. Any thoughts?

Anyone have a secret to getting these in decent condition from Amazon? I'm tired of playing the return game.

My volume 1's binding is broken, the pages are all falling out. I've only read it twice. Not sure what the best thing to do is

Are all the other ones OK? I seem to remember the first batch of vol1 doing this.

Are they glued in or sewn in? I would suggest finding some kind of book repair.

The other ones are okay, it seems glued in.I can see the signatures are just falling out. Seems like you can get a binding glue at Michaels, I might try that before buying another book. The other ones seem to hold up, but I dont want to be terrified to read them!

Yeah, they changed the binding method from Volume 2 onwards and newer copies of #1 supposedly are also better. I just read mine very carefully, although my copy of #1 is starting to show signs of binding issues after only half a dozen read-throughs.

Btw what do you mean by signatures?

Books are usually printed in 8 or 16 page chunks, and those booklets are sewn together to make a book. So the chunks of the books are what are falling out! :

Good to know they fixed the binding, the other volumes seem more sturdy, so I might just pick up a new copy.

That's the perennial downfall of ordering such items online. It sucks and why they allow it to happen confounds me

At least yours has turned up within reasonable time; mine is slated for delivery any time between August 19th and September 17th! You'd think they would make sure there would be enough copies to cover the preorders.

I got mine yesterday, too. It's a weird shade of baby $hit yellow.

I still love the hardbacks, but I'm slightly disappointed with the color choices lately. Baby-$hit yellow for Slash instead of black or green, weird baby-$hit brown/tan color for Krang in January instead of pink...

I still held off getting these hardcovers because I get the feeling the series will be re-released again in better collections. I made the mistake of buying all the TPB's that collect 4 issues or so up to issue 50 and then had to sell them all.

I did a similar thing and sold them to transition over to the hardcover collections. I really enjoy having the larger art on these and not having to juggle TPBs to get the reading-order correct, but they can be a bit unwieldy if you're used to reading TPBs one-handed on your back or something.

I don't see IDW releasing anything better than these. I mean, we can look to the Transformers and GI Joe lines... do those series have anything better? Not that I know of.

This is the top of the line, grade A stuff, amigo.

(But I hear ya on the TPBs... I still have Dimension X and Trial of Krang TPBs that I'll be cashing in come January.)
