Digest Comics


I had kind of a cool surprise when I got into work today. On my drawing table there was a couple of nifty little digest-sized TMNT reprints. They both featured material from the Tales series and are printed under the title "TMNT: Chroniques Des Tortues Ninja".

I've seen French reprints of the Turtles before, although I don't think anything of my stuff. I would love to see, and it's been brought up to Pete, to try to possibly do some American reprinting of the old Turtle comics in this type of format. Something about them- I've always been attracted to digest comics and from what I can tell, the art doesn't seem to suffer under the reduced size.

TMNT: Chroniques Des Tortues Ninja is published by Wetta Worldwide and Dagon Editions. Thanks go to whoever left them on my desk.

  3. That's pretty cool. My parents used to get me foreign reprints of American comics. Those were always pretty cool

  4. I didn't know there were Euro printings of TMNT books. I'm a huge fan of European comics. America, though making progress, is still far behind in the acceptance of this medium as a legitimate form of literature, but overseas, comics get quite the treatment with some very beautifully produced books (and those Italians and Frenchies can draw like nobody's business). Can't tell if that's a hardcover or a softcover, but it looks very elegant. I like the digest-sized books as well; I don't know what it is about them, but they hold a great appeal to me.

  5. These 2 little editions that appeared on my table are softcovers- although they both have nifty little dustjackets like some of the finer manga books I've seen. And yeah, the quality is simply superb.

  6. Maybe Mirage should release some digest size trades of TMNT, Tales, and the Individual minis.

  8. Man, I love the art I've seen from that story arc. Sadly, I've never read them.

    Many fruitless hours spent scouring E-bay and other such places for a copy... alas.

  9. They are hard to find. It took me about a year to track down all 5 issues of that story. The hardest to find was Leonardo #1.
