TMNT Annual 2005 book

Does anyone have a copy of this UK publication?

I'd grabbed one from eBay in early Nov. for rather cheap and it took a month for it to arrive from across the pond so it isn't really worth the hassle to complain to the seller. Though sadly, while the pages are immaculate and it was listed as "very good" condition... the seller apparently missed that a page is torn out. Naturally, it had to be the last page from the one story that isn't taken from a series episode. (The other two are Splinter recapping their origin and a short version of "The Ultimate Ninja" ep.)

As I have no idea how the "Ghost Ship" story, as told in Donnie's perspective, ends, I was wondering if anyone has this book or knows of pics somewhere online? I've tried to find images of pages online, but can't find much of anything but the cover. Would love to know what's on page 47/48.

Haha, I just imported a copy of that myself last month! Once I get home, I will take a look and see if I can get you a scan of those missing pages.

Didn't make it around to scanning last night. Hopefully, I'll have more success today! My copy does indeed have all the pages.

You just need pages 47/48?

Have a copy of this bought for about 50p 10 years ago at a charity shop. Will try to post scans if I can find it.

I think there were annuals in 2004, 05, 06, 07 and 08 in the UK if I recall

Yeah, it's just that one front and back page that's missing.



And if others are interested, I'll gladly pay it forward and scan the rest of what I do have of that story, unless I'm beaten to it.

Would have made a really cool stand alone episode, too bad it wasn't one, but the art is nice.

Cool, I have seen a couple others online and had wondered how many there actually were. I might have to keep them in mind if there are any more unknown stories in them.

I'd also be interested in this. I saw these floating around but no pictures of the interior so I never thought to buy any.

This is the 2006 annual https://www.amazon.co.uk/Teenage-Mut.../dp/1904329810

It had sons of the silent age and one other comic in it from the show

Cool! Will keep it in mind.



Here is most of "Ghost Ship" sans the end I'm missing.

Sorry if there is a little bit of blurriness or shadows, it's a large hardback so it was a little tricky.

Spoiler:









In addition this book also has short character bios, a few puzzles, etc.

The book's large dimensions are difficult to capture on my flatbed scanner, but here are the two pages:

Thank you, thank you! Much appreciated. Will add a print of that to my book if able.



Was somewhat right and somewhat wrong in my guess at how it ended. Missed opportunity for a second cool Halloween ep. But about that morning sun in the art when it's supposedly midnight.

I'll try to get you better scans if you really want to print it out. I think I'm missing some of the text on the right hand margin for page 48.

I think it'll be fine, I assume the only thing cut off is just part of an 'n' so no biggie if that's all it is.
