It's not a mini-comic, but it's a smaller-sized trade paperback.

Also, I take it there are both hardback and softcover printings?
Yes, there are. Although the hardback version rarely surfaces.

Thanks, Rose. I asked because on the new MirageLicensing site it is being listed as a "mini-comic format graphic novel." I'm guessing it isn't quite as small as the Mirage Mini-Comics, then.

Well, I'm not 100% sure. Height and width-wise they might be the same, but "mini-comic" isn't really an accurate description of Challenges. The Mirage mini-comics, however, are true mini-comics.

And if you don't have Challenges, you need to buy it. Period.

So I hear.

I mean, hey, it's Michael Dooney. Even if he penciled the art for a story written by a baboon high on the eggnog it would be worth owning right?

It's a good read. They actually used Raph's story as a side story in a 2k3 episode. It's Dooney, so it's definitely worth it.

Digging up this thread.

I'm searching for this book now but since we are ten years later from when this thread was made, now it's harder to find one in good shape for a normal price. I've been waiting for one to end up on Ebay for over a year now and still nothing (overpriced or bad shape) and Mirage doesnt sell those anymore. So is there another way to get this? (I don't think IDW will reprint that one)
