Thumbs up TMNT: The IDW Collection Hardcover on the way!

http://www.amazon.com/Teenage-Mutant...idw+publishing


Quote:
IDW's relaunch of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a hit with fans and critics alike. Now, collect the series in all-new oversized hardcovers that present the stories in recommended reading order. Collects the first 12 issues of the new ongoing series, plus the Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Splinter Micro-Series one-shots spliced in-between.
Pretty cool. I hope it also includes the shorts from Hero Comics 2012 and the 30th Anniversary Special, and possibly the TMNT Infestation issues.

So they're already re-releasing the trades in better collections? I'm not double dipping but cool for new readers.

Wow, that's actually the same price as if you buy the first 3 TPB, but hardcover which is definitely better.

Wait, so it even has 5 of the hero micros?

Due to digital TMNT comics being region locked to my country, I think this hardcover stuff will be the best option to collect at least the first arcs of IDW legally.

Wow, that's awesome. Really cool that they're apparently putting the Micros in between the issues, in proper reading order.

Nice. I might pick it up down the line even though I have the individual issues.

FINALLY! I've been avoiding the small trades for so long in hopes of something like this coming out. I have the singles but I think IDW really gains notoriety when you're reading the arcs all together. Plus HC bonus pts.

These are the ones I was waiting for. I have every issue of the singles bagged in chronological order for re-reads, and that's how I wanted them collected. Only thing that would make it better would be if the Infestation issues snuck in there too, but they're not vital.

So I'm guessing volume two will be #13-20, with Casey, April, Fugitoid, Krang & Baxter mixed in, plus Secret History of the Foot. That would be 17 issues as well.

Finally! Yes. So stoked.

Ordering now. I'll be looking forward to future volumes and may even purchase doubles because I'm a a nutcase when it comes to keeping hardcover's pristine.

...Wait, it is oversized right?

I wonder why the Infestation 2-parter is never included in stuff like this. Its never been referenced in the main series either, almost as if its non-canonical.

It's really odd, because it was a fun filler story with the Turtles fighting monsters/demons which is totally different than all the other stuff in IDW.

Oh. Seriously debating swapping out my trades for this, but I don't know if I'm ready to double dip on IDW's series yet.

The hardcovers are definitely going to take up less space and last longer though.

This is exactly why I didn't pick up any Archie trades yet. Man, I knew they would do this. I fully expect to see bigger Mirage trades soon too.

Actually, with Mirage I wish they would do some smaller trades. I wish there were stand-alone "Return to New York," "City at War," etc. TPBs to point new readers toward. The Ultimate Collections require quite a bit of buy-in.

I hope they do something like this for the Archie series bc the first Archie TPB I saw was bad, if I had to describe the quality dog **** comes to mind
as for Mirage I am happy with the ultimate trades, I just wish they went in order completely.

I went ahead and did it. I may cancel, but there's little reason not to with Amazon. If I do still want it by the time it comes out, at least I'll hit the lowest price that way.

I may even shed off some single issues now that these are coming out. I'll probably keep the first five issues and any other's that remain extra special to me.
