I loved those early TMNT comics growing up, yup. The original run was the first TPB collection of comics I ever had as a kid.
Look, I'm kind of overboard when it comes to TMNT stuff. I always have been. Like, even my years where I thought "comics were for kids," I still followed a lot of TMNT stuff. I own all the movies, I own tons of the TV shows, etc. I just love the franchise in general.
I have mostly avoided the IDW main series, though. Which was bugging me. Because I HAVE been enjoying Batman/TMNT crossover as well as TMNT Universe, which is only 3 issues so far but I love it.
The new series (starting in 2012) is a reboot by Eastman. I read the first issue a while back... and then jumped to #61 haha.
