Comic Adaptations List

I've been on the Drome almost the entire run of the 2K3 series and I don't think we've had a topic yet that detailed every issue each episode is based off of. I thought it would be quite fun to give it a shot. I own every turtles comic out to date and almost every trade, I have all the stuff just printed in trades however, so I find myself qualified to start this.

I would love help from any other avid turtle scholars though. I'd like to go in order so first up is season 1.

Episode 1: Things Change

Great idea! The first turtles I found out about was the 2k3 toon; seeing just how closely related so many of these episodes are to the comics has inspired me to begin a mirage comic hunt!
I knew quite a few episodes were adaptions, but I never knew just how many!
Good luck on continuing the list!

I'm glad this has been helpful for people. I know we lost a few posts here, which is why I waited to continue this.

I added a "Possible influence" section for fun. I'll go back and add them to the other seasons if you guys like. It's just stuff that happened in the series and then was transfered to the comics. The idea could have possibly been from the series first, they're speculation then fact.

Here we go with Season 3

And here we have it folks, the last of the comic based episodes. Everything after this may contain characters from earlier in the series but none of the episodes are based on comics. There was a planned "Space Usagi" crossover for the second season of "Fast Forward" but that season never saw the light of day.

Good job on these lists, Spit. It helps to realize HOW much of the actual comics they used to make the show. I've never really read the comics directly, but knowing the connections makes me not feel like a total naive...

Awesome list, but a few nitpicks -

Episode 89 "Still Nobody" - I don't have the proof myself, but I've heard tell that it was based on the backup story in the original TPB of Tales Vol. 1. Someone else should check on that.

Episode 101 "Adventures In Turtle-Sitting" - I'm surprised you didn't mention it, but the design for Monster Don is exactly the same as Monster Raph from Volume 4.

And of course Fast Foward features a future with aliens living on Earth, similar to the one introduced in Volume 4.

You and me both. Heck, I wish they'd use him more even in the comics.

Very cool list, I didn't realize they had taken so much from the comics after all!

I think the comic adapted eps were all excellent, that's one thing I'll miss once this show is finished.

Thank you guys for the support and thank you for the corrections. I totally spaced those two entries.

As for FF I don't really see that being based off Volume 4 as you don't really see utroms in it that I remember and that was a huge part of that arc. m

I agree, that was an interesting read. I thought characters like Karai, Utroms, Elite Guard, etc. were all created for the cartoon series. Never had a clue that they existed long before in the comics. I never read the comics for two reasons, they were impossible to find around here and I don't like how they were in black and white (not to mention I hated how the turtles all had the same red masks...boring). But yea, pretty neat seeing where the cartoons originally came from. I'm gonna guess that Agent Bishop was created for the show though and not in the comics?

Tales Vol. 2 #38 has toddler Turtles fighting Leatherhead, so maybe that's what you're thinking of. I'm pretty sure the young Turtles ran into an alligator during a flashback in this episode.

Possible I don't think that's it though. That issue came out way after the episode.

I agree I wish they did a lot of other comic stories or at least characters since I tend to enjoy the new storylines better.
