I don't think so. I don't need a hard back and front that's just going to take up more real estate on the bookshelf unnecessarily and cost $15 more than it needs to.

Yeah, as much as I love the Ultimate Collections hardcovers, they really do take up so much space on a shelf.

An acceptable trade-off for original black and white.

Sure. I don't mean to speak for everyone.

Personally, I just can't stand paperbacks due to the ease at which they bend, fold, and generally look like crap. And I do take care of my books, but these things are unavoidable in the long run.

If you have all six volumes they literally take up 6 1/2 inches of shelf space. Thatís tiny compared to a comic box.

Thanks for all that info Cubed.

So I own a trade of Soul's Winter. Is that not part of Volume 1?

It is, but it's "Guest Era" Volume 1, aka non-canon to the main storylines of Volume 1.

Yes, the rest of the guest issues were collected in the "Classics" collections.

It's irritating that "Masks" and "Leatherhead, Too" are under "Classics" instead of... whatever different titles ended up in the canon collections.

Or, wait, are the Classics editions the canon stuff that AREN'T the main storyline?

Man, so many reprints... I'm confusing myself now.

The classics feature a lot of canon issues, the Ultimate collections were strictly for the issues Peter/Kevin specifically had a role in. A lot of Mirage staff issues like Michael Dooney's issues, etc. are in classics. Not just non-canon issues

You guys are explaining this to me and I'm getting confused.

At the end of the day I just want to own all Mirage Volume 1 stuff in one place. It's complicated what stories I have collected and which I don't.

no.

issue #22-#47 were stories done by guest writer/artists that MOSTLY didn't take place within the Mirage Eastman/Laird continuity.

there are just a handful of stories that are canon, or could actually fit within the Mirage time-line.

some of this also has to do with work-for-hire contracts.

here's an example of some of what you can expect from the Mirage 'Guest Era'.

Yeah, ignore that sh!t... makes Fred Wolf look like "City at War" or "Attack on Technodrome"...

Most of the guest issues were written to take place in canon, outside of the wacky parody stuff like Mark Martin's or those Mcweeny comics. Or stuff that was blatantly an alternate universe/take on TMNT like the "Souls Winter" trilogy.

All the other guest issues fit in fine with Mirage, they were written as part of the same world even if Pete didn't acknowledge the events in them. Which didn't matter because they're all essentially self contained stories.

issue 33 drawn by Richard Corben

i also really enjoyed issue 37 by Rick McCollum & Bill Anderson

So I noticed this topic started in 2014 or so and suddenly came back to life and started talking about drunk turtles and the volume 1 guest era.

Is this Urban Legends thing still happening or not?
