Hey, I currently own a TMNT and Albedo. These are two books that have never left my collection. I’ve had my 9.2 TMNT 1 for seven years, and got it raw from a guy (who has now become a friend) who sold me over 100+ turtle figures moc throughout a 3-4 period. It has a lot of sentimental value, as it was the first turtles I’ve ever owned. I remember flipping through it raw. It has the sigs on the inside cover. Aside from that, I’ve owned over 6 copies, which I’ve traded and sold. I could say this- TMNT is ALWAYS a great book to own. Every copy I’ve touched I’ve wanted to keep and hoard. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do so. There are some that have a few copies though. When I pick up a first print, it gives me a high. It sounds funny but it’s true. I have done very well on every copy I’ve owned. Let’s be honest- there are not many that wouldn’t like to own a copy.
I bought a 9.4 Albedo around the same time on eBay. I had that for years until I traded down last year to an awesome boardie. I’ve owned a few copies as well, and it’s a book I would love to hoard. Usagi is bad a.. for those haven’t read him. I’ve had a connection to him since the 89’ figure. Usagi, Panda Khan, and Samurai Leo had some fun back then.
Regarding Cerebus, I never had a connection to the character or book. I haven't really read the series either, which I’ve heard is pretty cool. Aside from being a hard to find book, I could say that I’ve never been dying to own one.
Great thread, and Happy New Year to All! Let’s hope those for a happy and healthy 2020. Let’s also hope to get those books that we love too!
