Oh, wow, today is the day the last of the ebay auctions end:
https://www.ebay.com/sch/mirage-stud...1&_ipg=&_from=

Love the fact that they got the Turtle-spined VHS sets for sale on the last day!


And the original artwork to the last issue of the Archie ongoing comic!

I just picked up a copy of Leonardo #1 for $10. Supposedly it is in nm condition.

It feels like that book is going to go up in value as time goes on. Seems to have sort of escaped the market for now, maybe by way of not being an “Eastman and Laird tmnt” title. But it comes from that very first Mirage arc, as we all know, and is an important piece of the classic TMNT lore. Also one of the relatively rare issues to have Peter and Kevin directly collaborating.

I’m sure it’s going to eventually climb in price with those other classic Mirage issues, so it feels like a good time to pick it up. People are sleeping on it. I think “The River” issues may be good pick-ups, as well. There’s a fair chance we never see those issues reprinted.

Mirage #10 has always been my fav tmnt issue, so I had to have the lead in.

That's the kind of thing that blows my mind in some sort of weird way, even though it's basic maths.

My birth day is closer to the end of WW2 then it is to the current day.

So yeah. Totally with you. 1940's/1950's seemed like ancient history back in the 90's. The 80's doesn't seem all that far away to me, but it is.

Heh, never thought of that, but that's true with me too!
