Going for a bakers dozen run of TMNT books, picked up a lower grade copy of #3 (1st print) during FCBD sales. LCS has a good program where you get $10 cash back when you spend $100, so I used that and got the book for about $10 after discounts (very happy)! Still need #1, #2, #4, #12, but I'm getting there!

Last week I was lucky enough to win this, imho, a pretty sweet copy of Amazing Heroes #45 April 15th 1984. There is this ad for TMNT #1 -

The eBay seller was extremely nice and did a helluva pack job on it👍

Asking prices are just that but you've got to hand it to the guy, he's ambitious!

Cool, didn't know about that one. I'll be on the lookout for one now. Nice pickup!

Nice!  I saw that book get listed originally for something like $5k.  It's a hard book to find (especially in the shape this appears to be in).  Glad you got a much better deal on it.  Congrats!

Thanks guys🤘

This book has been in “my mental notes” (I totally hear you lol ) for quite some time. Upon learning about this book and the chronological timeline of dates & advertising and such, leading up to the unleashing of TMNT #1.

No fricken clue this book or any copy had a backstory of that much cheddar! Really? I will be sending it in at some point, I’d like to know how grateful I should be to have won this actual book and to the seller for packing it flawlessly. This is a book I might crack out, so the Ad can actually be seen. I’m just geeked to just own a copy of this early...prelude or precursor, to TMNT Goodness🤗

Very interesting that the wording of the ad states that TMNT #1 is already selling for $1.50 (or $2.00 postpaid)... possibly indicating that TMNT #1 pre-dates this, pre-dates Gobbledygook, etc.  TMNT #1 could have been in someone's hands before any of these ads.

my new Eastman sketch addition. Now I just need an April. I missed the one on eBay a while back that went for around $90.

Anyone know what the heck this is? Picked it up at flea market...

It's definitely European since it's HERO Turtles instead of NINJA Turtles.  The language looks Swedish. 

Is it a comic or a product catalog?
