Tales of TMNT Collected Books

The original series’ entire run has been collected twice as trade paperbacks, first in 1989 and again in 2007. Each version of the trade features new story contents, with the 1989 edition featuring a new 10 page back-up story at the end written & drawn by Jim Lawson. The 2007 edition features a new 27-page story by Lawson titled “Spinal Tapped” with this story taking place after issue #7 and a 4-page epilogue by Murphy & Lawson (this new trade does NOT collect the new back-up story from the 1989 edition). Plus, the 2007 edition also features new opening splash page of the opening introduction by a TMNT character “Let me tell you a story”, omitting the original opening splash pages from the original issues completely. This edition also didn’t feature the comics’ original covers.
