So it looks like Volume 11 may be delayed by a couple of months;

Things From Another World has the date as September 30th (which is also reflected on comicslist.com and Rich's TMNT blog) and PRH has it listed as October 6th, meanwhile Amazon US has September 1st (Amazon UK still shows the July date) and Comixology further confuses things by saying August 26th.

For those trying to keep up, that's four different dates spread across a 7-week period, two of which are Tuesdays and the other two are Wednesdays.

Hopefully we can soon get some clarity out of this mess...

In the US, IDW ships books to mass market bookstores (ie Amazon) a few weeks after they ship to comic shops with a Tuesday release date to match Book on-sale day. It?s possible the comiXology date is correct with a shorter window prior to Amazon?s release date, which would be potentially correct for mass market.

Amazon put up a listing for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The IDW Collection Volume 13 (TMNT IDW Collection) HC with a May 25th 2021 release date (for mass market retailers)and Jennika on the cover with a yellow spine that is too similar to the solicited image of vol 12 featuring Old Hob.

Collects issues 90 to 100, the free comic book day issue, Macro series Raph and all of Shredder in Hell.

Sigh. I get wanting to put Jennika on the cover as quickly as they can, but I was really hoping to get Karai instead and save Jennika for Volume 14.

I mean, Karai's been a much bigger presence in IDW TMNT, and Jennika barely did anything until Issue #101 really moved her into the spotlight.

Yeah, 14 would have been perfect for her as it would probably have both minis

It's easiest to compare the covers over on PRH, but yeah it's a pity they didn't wait until volume 14. Actually it's a bit like the Donnie and April covers being swapped around for vols 4 and 5, so it's not without precedent.
Not sure who will be on vol 14 now, but the biggest characters left that I can think of would be Karai, Baxter, Leatherhead or possibly Rat King.

Nice to see that 13 ends with 100. That makes 14 (or whatever they'll brand it) the PERFECT jumping-on point for me with the hardcovers. (I've been collecting the trades of everything and want to finish out the original 23 volumes, but I was waiting for the ideal opportunity to switch so it's easier to keep track and collect everything. Seems like I was correct in my assumption that the time skip would present that opportunity.)

Yeah, that's basically the reason behind the tpb relaunch too.

So I've put together a quick color 'swatch' below of each volumes spine and 12 and 13 are very similar so I'm hoping that 12 will possibly be a bit darker like 9 (Slash) ended up or a bit more orange maybe.

2 and 11 are also very close but there's at least a few volumes between them!

I've really grown to loathe the color scheme.

We need some damn cooler colors in there. Literally cooler, opposite of warm. We need some more blues and greens. Maybe a brown, maybe a black. Throw in another red for Karai.

Getting a mite sick of all this "50 shades of puke yellow"

Also given this ends with issue 100, this is a good place to stop if you don't care about the Mutant Town storyline.

Yeah I agree; of the characters I mentioned earlier I had imagined something like: Karai - dark red, Baxter - indigo/ dark purple/ violet, Leatherhead - green, Rat King - brown.

I can't think of any other characters who's key color would be a shade of green or blue.

Here's the current line up in order:



Deffo a bit weaker towards the end.

So I've been trying to work out the likely arrangement of issues for Volumes 14 and 15 which should bring us up to the ten year mark and I came up with the following:



I've included 12 and 13 for reference and the blocks of color are the known story arcs.
I think the second or third ordering are the most likely and they also could be tweaked if #120 or #125 end up being double sized like #75 or #100.
The 2nd Jennika miniseries could also move around a bit as it won't end until around April when #116 will probably release so Jen2 may even be set after that.
I'll have another look at this some time after Vol.13 releases and we'll have a better idea of the last few issues running up to August's anniversary and (presumable) release of issue #120.

I have to say it is a little weird to have Jen on the cover of 13 when she could easily be on the next collection where she'll most likely have her two minis. Seems like it's jumping the gun slightly.

Been meaning to pick up the collections for a while now, and I finally have Volume 1 coming in on Thursday from Amazon.

Hoping to grab Volume 2 as well, but that seems to be the hardest one to get ahold of currently.

Are any of the volumes currently out of print?

I seem to remember Volume 4 being mentioned as scarce a page or two back...

Good to know. I'll have to grab that one soon then.
My goal is to grab at least 2 a month, but we'll see. I'd like to have them all by the time Volume 13 releases.

The artwork on the covers of these IDW collections are superb. Probably my favorite designs and depictions of the turtles and their allies and enemies. So much character behind the drawings.

But I wonder, why did Duncan’s style change so much? I’ve seen like 3 or 4 very distinct styles from him. Is there any article that goes through this? I’m just curious. I wish he drew the turtles in the main issues more like how they look in the collections covers compared to how they started to look like from issue 5 or 6 till 11 or so. Those egg heads. Haha.
