TMNT Reprintings Abound !!



Greetings everyone!  What a busy time in the world of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  If you’re a TMNT comic book collector, you’ve hopefully weathered the 18 covers for TMNT #50 and 31 covers (yep. Thirty. One. !!) for Batman/TMNT #1.  “But wait,” you ask.  “Weren’t there only 29 covers for Batman/TMNT #1?”  And I respond, “Yes, there WERE.”   There are now 2nd and 3rd printings for Batman/TMNT #1.  But it doesn’t stop there…Batman/TMNT #2 & #3 have reprintings and now even TMNT #55 & #56 have them!

So, given that there are already covers coming out of the woodwork for TMNT, here’s a rundown of the recent reprint covers so you don’t miss them.  They’re smaller print runs and aren’t as publicized…and collectors frequently overlook them.  Also, I would bet that all 6 issues of Batman/TMNT will have reprints so, although they won’t be listed here, keep an eye out for them as well.
