PIZZA TO READ
Since many time ago, I wanted to read the original first run of comics by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I read many good comments and reviews about it, but since the original single comics were something too expensive to find and they didn't do any TPB since it was a very underground independent comic book series, I thought that I'd never being able to read it.
However, thankfully, IDW Publishing got right to reprint the original run, even adding color, and while I couldn't get the re-print single issues, finally I was able to get this amazing TPB, with a larger size format and with a beautiful cover made with PIZZA-LIKE CARDBOX hardcover.
I have to be honest, I expected something different, thinking of this whole run of 7 issues collected in this first volume.
The first issue is amazing and certainly it deserves to be in any list of the best single issues ever made in the history of comic books. But, the rest of the run, I feel like the authors downtoned the violence of the premise that one gets in the first issue.
I mean, in the first issue, the turtles fight against ninjas, real flesh-and-blood ninjas, but in the rest of the series, they almost get to fight robots and aliens.
Also, the first issue is dramatically serious, but right in the second issue, you start to receive quite a dosis of humor, I am not a bitter man, hehe, and I know that the TMNT eventually become a children-oriented product but hey, I think that I would be able to get good old serious violence in at least the first run.
Also, another problem here, at least in the boundaries of the first run that it's what I read and I can evaluate, the main villain (you know who...) is beaten and he didn't return, seems to be dead, maybe not, who knows, at least he isn't seen again in the rest of issues collected here that they are like 20 issues.
So, you get a real impressive badass villain, in the first issue...
...and the rest of issues?
Well, you don't get any villain not even close of that same level of quality as the introductory bad guy (you know who...)
And the worst, is that while the first villain was a down-to-earth type of bad guy, the rest are a bunch of mad scientists, robots and aliens.
I know, the series is about a martial arts teacher rat and 4 ninja turtles, all of them irradiated with some kind of sci-fi chemical...
But I think that the series should keep the most down-to-earth possible, at least in the kind of threats and villains, to create a balance between the far-fetched premise with realistic challenges.
Still, the TPB is a gorgeous product made with passion for the fans (I love this edition!!!) and it's recommended for any comic book fan and/or fan of the TMNT.
