Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Mirage (1980’s)

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was first published by Mirage Studios in 1984 in Dover, New Hampshire. The concept arose from a humorous drawing sketched out by Kevin Eastman during a casual evening of brainstorming and bad television with Peter Laird. Using money from a tax refund, together with a loan from Eastman’s uncle, the young artists self-published a single-issue comic intended to parody four of the most popular comics of the early 1980s: Marvel ComicsDaredevil and New Mutants, Dave Sim’s Cerebus, and Frank Miller’s Ronin. The TMNT comic series has been published in various incarnations by various comic book companies since 1984.

    1. I haven’t seen the movie (guess I didn’t miss much, lol) , but I did enjoy the early issues in the 80’s. My run started with issue #2, which I picked up when it was released. Missed that 1st issue, damn!

      1. Ah, figured they’d be expensive. Why don’t companies re-release the earlier issues so we can read them without spending so much money? The since they’re re-released they wouldn’t be as expensive and the original copies would still be really pricy
