TMNT Comics: Value of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Comic Books

The Teenage Mutant Ninja turtle also known as the Ninja Turtles or TMNT. The ninja turtles are a band of four fictional ninja teenage superhero mutant humanlike turtle brothers. These four ninja turtles are named after Italian Renaissance artists, Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello are four ninja turtles who were trained in Ninjutsu or Japanese martial arts by their anthropomorphic father like rat sensei Master Splinter. These anthropomorphic ninja turtles live in the sewers of New York City, from where they fight crime and battle evil overlords, alien invaders, and other petty criminals while staying hidden from society.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been one of the most collectibles and fan-favorite comic books from the 1980s. Ever since the TMNT made its debut in the comic book industry; it has become a long-running franchise featuring TMNT video games, animated movies, and even live-action cinematic movies. With the cinematic reappearance of the turtles, the TMNT comics have suffered quite a price hike ever since.

The holy grail comic book among all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fans, and the avid 80s comic book collectors and enthusiasts.

This comic book has been so popular and loved that the same issue featured around six reprintings with varied prices. However, the first printing with all its might comes at the spot of the most expensive TMNT comic book of all time.

HOW TO IDENTIFY THE FIRST PRINTING OF TMNT #1:

Fun Fact: The first three printing of the comic books are almost identical to each other. But there are some ways to identify which printing do you have.

So, the second printing of the comic book does not have the inside back cover advertisement as shown below. Whereas, the third printing is mentioned on the inside cover of the comic.

The inside back cover of the 1st print also has a full-page ad of another Mirage publication named as the Gobbledygook #1 as shown below:

A few years back, this comic book has very little value in the comic book market. But with the popularity of the TMNT franchise among the new comic book collectors, this comic book has gained quite a popularity and has multiplied its worth to several thousand in high grades. However, the first printing is extremely expensive so many comic book collectors simply opt for the second printing.

One more thing: The inside back cover does not feature the advertisement for Gobbledygook #1.

The third printing is the final printing of the original comic book that features specs almost similar to the original cover art.

This printing also quotes “THIRD PRINTING” in the fine print inside the front cover which makes identifying this comic book quite easier.

The third printing has gained quite a popularity hike recently with prices hiking up to several hundred. Some comic book experts also call this comic book as the poor man’s 2nd printing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, 4th Printing

With the price hike of the first third printings, the fourth printing hasn’t had been in the lover’s spotlight. The prices of the 4th printing are nowhere as much as the first three printings of the comic books. The main reason behind this comic book being not so popular is mainly because this book features a different cover art.
