    Is this still coming in August? Amazon has it set for September . It seems odd that they would release Vol 1 and 2 in the same month.

      Hey Dan, IDW told me it was on time earlier this week so I’m pretty sure this is still August. It will likely be at or near the Vol. 1 release. I don’t see that it’s changed on any lists I have to date. Vol. 1 was originally planned for June and they’ve had issues with it so it will hit right around Vol. 2.

    Ok I’m confused first you say it collects issues #22 and #23 along with a collection of stories from the Shell Shock TP. Than you say it collects issues #16 and #22–23 so which is it?

      Hey Dan, I’m clarifying all this with IDW as I type this…I’ll update this post and then comment again here to let you know for sure.
      Just FYI regarding the “why” on the different information – Amazon currently doesn’t list that #16 is included but does list the Shell Shock stories. #16 is supposed to be in the TMNT Classics Vol. 1 so I didn’t list it. Conversely, the IDW solicitations (in green below the picture) for August DO list #16 but not the Shell Shock stories. I’ll get to the bottom of it…thanks for your comment!

        OK, I’ve updated things accordingly. Seems that #16 was removed from the TMNT Classics, Vol. 1 after initial solicitations and then added to TMNT Classics, Vol. 2. The short stories from Shell Shock TPB are now part of the TMNT Classics, Vol. 1.
        Thanks for your comment…hope that clears things up for you (and everyone).

          I was looking at my copy of TMNT Classics, Vol. 1, and my Ultimate Collections Vol. 1-3. I then looked at the solicit above about the next Classics volume and noticed that issue 18 is missing. Any idea where it will be collected? According to the article on that first mentioned these TPB collections, the issues are supposed to be collected in release order.

            Hey kidturtle, IDW is hoping to put #18 in an appropriate collection down the line but it’s unknown at this time when it will happen or what collection it might be in.
