I don't think Karia is shredder's actual grandaughter, more like great, great, great, granddaughter/ descendent.

Yeah most likely. 300 years is more like 5 or 6 generations than 3

Hope it's ok I am replicating my message from different thread:
May I ask you to identify what fonts are used for the title of TMNTA Archie comics, specifically for "EASTMAN and LAIRD's" and "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA"? I would be obliged for a proper response. Thank you in advance!

Can you elaborate on your question? Are you asking for possible sales during the year or places, online or in person, to buy TPB's cheap?

I buy my TMNT and Spider-Man comics on Amazon. I've found this to be the most easily accessible, reliable, and somewhat least expensive place to buy them. Half Price Books is a good place to look for old paperbacks, and Barnes and Noble, for me, is not the place to buy comics. The retail value is usually the exact price on the back of the comic, which, while fair, annoys me.

By the way, what's your country of origin? That's a huge factor.

Online or in person. It seems like comixology has lots of great sales from time to time, but I don't want digital. I am just wondering when they have comic sales.

I usually order from Amazon, they had great prices on the ultimate collection hardbacks. I am wondering if they will have any big sales on black friday or cyber monday?

IDW Adventures trade

So volume 8 collected issues 28-31.

Volume 9 (via the Amazon description) collects 37-40. WTH...am I missing something?

Someone brought that up over at the IDW Forums and Bobby answered:

I do recall there being some snafu about the listing for the next Adventures volume and how it pertains to the Mutanimals mini— but i'm not sure about the specifics.

Thanks!

I'm going to go ahead and assume the listing is wrong and it'll contain the next batch of chronological issues. IDW's trade department has been routinely incompetent in listing the contents of each volume in solicits distributed to vendors.

Remember how EVERY SINGLE VOLUME of Classics had the wrong contents listed in all the official solicits? I still don't think Amazon has cleaned that mess up...

I'm pretty new to buying comics so I can't give you a definitive answer on regular sales. I can give a few tips. Keep an eye out for sales during major holidays like Thanksgiving/Blackfriday/Cybermonday and Xmas. Free Comic Book Day is another day to keep an eye out for possible sales. I can't guarantee they'll have sales, but it's always worth keeping an eye out. Do yourself a favor and if you have a local comic book shop, visit it. You never know what they might have and at what price. Ask them if they ever have sales during the year and at what discounts. Visit other comic shops around your area as well. I'm a member on another comic forum where a few members have been lucky in finding OOP or hard to find titles they've been wanting at cover price or reasonable prices.


Note: CheapGraphicNovels = CGN InStockTrades = IST

Two sites I'll recommend for general use are instocktrades(dot)com and cheapgraphicnovels(dot)com. They both have amazing regular discounts on comics and package your orders extremely well. IST recently moved to another state so they've been a bit off on filling orders. Hopefully they'll get things settled properly. A few things you should know regarding how these sites work. Neither deals with singles/floppies and just TPB's, HC's and Graphic Novels. IST charges $4 for shipping unless you spend atleast $50 on one order, which will give you free shipping. Sometimes they have a banner up that signifies an extra 2% off on certain orders. If you see the banner up you can click on it for details on how it works. CGN charges $7 in shipping regardless of order total, which is unfortunate, but sometimes they have better discounts then other sites, which will even out the cost.


I had trouble searching for TMNT titles on IST so don't give up if you don't find what you're looking for with one or two searches. Creating accounts on either site is free so feel free to do so so you can create wishlists for easy access.


That's everything I can think of for now. Feel free to ask if you have any follow up questions regarding my post. I'm not sure if I can post links so I decided not to.

I saw a Power Level character list for the IDW comics so far:

Don't take it seriously, if I may re-list it.

1) Slash
2) 4 TMNT together
3) Shredder - Splinter
4) Bebop & Rocksteady
5) 2 turtles
5) Krang

Thanks Spengs! That's kinda what I figured (and was hoping) to be the case.

I think Slash is the only one who is consistent

Remeber when Splinter kicked all four Turtles' asses?

If it came down to Shredder vs Slash, who do you think would win?

as smart as Slash is now, I don't think he's craftier than Shredder yet. but he most definitely has more raw power than Shredder. I say it'd be a close fight and would largely depend on circumstances. I don't think Shredder would have a hard time at all taking down Bebop and Rocksteady, at the same time, he's tactful enough for their brute strength not to be a major issue. Slash though, he's already more naturally armored, so it'd be tougher to eliminate him so quickly

Does he eat a slice of pizza every time he kills someone?

Which characters should be added on Krang's side? Leatherhead? Or do you think Krang alone is fine now?
