I thought the HC was being released at the same time as the comic editions. But, today the HC moved to Aug. 02 on the Diamond site so I guess maybe it is being released later.

On a related note, when IDW sent me all the cover images for TMNT/Usagi yesterday, there was only one image for the HC (the Regular cover). When I inquired about the Sakai Signature Variant version, they told me they didn't see it so weren't sure about its existence. Maybe Stan is doing this one on his own?

I ordered that Usagi hardcover for September, it was only $11.86 so you can't go wrong.

I ordered as soon as the listings appeared. Yeah the original date I have for the HC is 7/12. It's difficult not to feel like this is a bait and switch (maybe not the most accurate phrase) maneuver to get more upfront pre-sales. Or it got pushed back because not enough orders yet for a HC print run. But I'm a novice at such things so am certainly uncertain.

out of curiosity was the pre-order price $11.86 when you made your order?

I'll make inquiries. So Stan's softcover version is still being printed via IDW and supplied back to him, a la you doing #73? Which is why it's in Diamond solicits.

Wait what? It's not even an HC so what's the point to this one? I guess we can add this one to the new mirageverse list

I think it might be to reinvigorate interest in the "Tales of the TMNT" reprint line. Get new readers on board with something less intimidating than "Volume 9."

The way IDW releases things makes little sense to me.
This...
TMNT:The IDW Collection Volume 2
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/16314...4AL&ref=plSrch
Before this...
TMNT Volume 2: The Darkness Within
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/16840...fDL&ref=plSrch
It would be more easy to justify a double dip if the release order was flipped. imo

but why would it be better to release 'TMNT Volume 2: The Darkness Within'
this first?

no ones going to buy it. it's just the main series and doesn't include the Micro-series.

Uninformed casuals will buy it.

And the missing issues will confuse them.

And the odds are 90% they'll say "eh, screw this" and 10% they'll figure it out and buy more comics.

So yeah, really, no idea why IDW does this.

i'm just happy that the 'IDW Collection' hardcovers come out first, while those thick TPB come out way after.

.....alone .......in the dark ........unnoticed.

If you had bought this...TMNT Volume 1: Shell Unleashed
https://www.amazon.com/Teenage-Mutan.../dp/1631405764 Then vol. 2 'darkness within' would be next to purchase.
But because this..https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/16314...4AL&ref=plSrch vol 2 in HC with the micro-series was available first people bought that instead.

It's easier to spend money on an upgrade HC with more content then go back and pickup a paperback. I think we are saying the exact same thing.

I can only speak for myself. I would have ended up owning both if released in opposite order. Now I am content with only having the Splinter HC vol 2.

Would have also bought this
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/16137...mbL&ref=plSrch
TMNT: Micro Series Volume 1 with 'darkness within.'

So that's why it makes sense in my mind if looking to sell more books that the order could have been flipped.

i was buying the 4-issue collected TPB volumes before i purchased 'IDW Collection' HC volume.

there was no way in bloody blue blazes that i was going to buy the Shell Unleashed TPB.

i'm not even sure how the math will add up if those 'Shell Unleashed', Darkness Within' actually continue


Vol. 1 issues#1-12
Vol. 2 issues#13-24
Vol. 3 issues#25-36?
Vol. 4 issues#37-48? or a thicker volume containing #37-50?

meh! pointless release that it is!
