Ask a Question, Get an Answer

I asked Krang about this and he said we could replace the FAQ threads with this, a general question and answer thread.

So this is where you can ask any and all of your TMNT comic book questions. No question too small, no question too large. No question too obscure! Someone around here is bound to know the answer.

It can be "How much is this comic worth?" or "In what issue did this happen?" or "Where can I find this comic?" Really, anything. This is your place to ask.

So how much ARE all of my comics worth? I have all of Vol. 1, most of 2, none of 3, all of 4. I have all of the Tales Vol 1 issues but Leatherhead (where do I find this one? Already checked mycomicshop and milehighcomics.) and all of vol 2 (gotta go to the comic store soon to pick up a ton!). I also have quite a few signed... but none by Laird.

Alrighty, here's my general take on the value of TMNT comic books.

With a few exceptions, it doesn't seem that individual issues go for a whole lot. I've got a stack of comics for sale in the buy/sell/trade forum basically for cover price ($2-$3), yet people complain about my prices being too high. But once in awhile you'll get a lot on eBay for all of Vol. 1, 1-62, and it'll sell for $500 - An average of about $8/book.

All of the magazine-sized issues seem to sell for at least $20, with the early first prints obviously fetching considerably more. The error cover of #3 seems to be the most sought-after/valuable comic after the first print of #1.

The entire run of Vol. 2 is still available from Mirage for $3/issue.

Most of Vol. 4 is still available from Mirage for $3-$4, too. I watched an eBay auction of Vol. #1 first print recently just to see what it would go for (since Mirage only has the second print available). The opening bid was low and I don't think it even sold at all. I don't think there's much demand for these books.

If you want to get a hold of Tales #6 and those places don't have it, watching eBay is probably your best bet. If you're not so concerned with the actual comic and just want to read the story, all of Tales Vol. 1 is supposed to be reprinted in a collected book sometime this year.

Signatures will probably help the value at least slightly. I personally don't like my books to be signed (unless I also have an unsigned copy) and if it is signed I would prefer that it was signed close to the date of publication. But that's just me.

Haha, I rambled a lot. But I guess in short I'd say that I don't think TMNT comics are relegated to the quarter bins anymore as they used to be.

Thanks in advance!

Obviously it's a style preference. Or maybe they took into consideration all of the penis jokes. Also, ditch the apostropohe.

Amazon gets trades way after comic shops get them.

Both Diamond and IDW have it listed for Sept. 26 (along with TMNT #14).

First of all - I'm pretty sure there are other ways for you to get the comics...

And second... Those sorts of requests are not allowed here...

Bullsh*t. Both www.mycomicshop.com and www.milehighcomics.com ship to Argentina at a modest fee, others as well I'm sure.

jejeje... sorry, I read the forum rules and didnt find anything about it... I know is ilegal, but the shiping to argentina isnt a modest fee with the actual dollar/peso exchange, and the price of each issue goes up of the 10 dollars withs this... Is way out of my budget... I try to buy editions that are imported here, but those doesnt come very often, and usually stops after a few numbers... understand a desperate turtle fan...


thank you paaate... XD

Where do you live in Argentina, anyway? I have a friend that lives in Mendoza and his comic store is able to get him pretty much anything he wants. And in Buenos Aires there are hundreds of comics stores.

I'm going to guess no, as most of those ads are over a decade old.

Kind of... I spoke with Katie (manages orders for Mirage) about this and she said that although there's no official subscription service, if you give her your credit info and address she can mail you the issues as they're released (with the standard 1-book shipping cost).
