Review

"Showcases every aspect of the half-shell heroes, from their earliest days in Eastman and Laird's self-published B&W comics, through multiple motion pictures, video games, and TV series."--"ComicsAlliance" ..".you owe it to yourself to pick this bad boy up. It's worth every penny."--"DVD Corner" ""Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History" is a must-have for fans and highly recommend for pop-culture aficionados."--"Cinema Sentries" "When they included "Ultimate" in the title, they weren't kidding around!"--"ComicBookMovie.com" "Every TMNT fan needs to buy "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History." Seriously, you won't be disappointed. You will have a hard time putting this book down once you start reading it."--"Geeks Under Grace" "This book is something to be treasured."--"Examiner" "If you know a lifelong Turtles fan, you can't go wrong with giving him/her this well-designed hardcover. It includes interviews with the franchise's creators, a reprint of the first "Turtles" comic, a poster and much more."--"USA Today" "This eminently readable and thoroughly researched tome is an obvious labor of love for Farago, who heads the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. It's packed full of rare art and photos, including lots of facsimile documents and a reproduction of the very first "TMNT" comic. Well worth the time for anyone who grew up with echoes of 'Cowabunga!' in their heads."--"Animation Magazine" ..".a much-welcomed addition to my bookshelf."--"Never Ending Radical Dude" "A must have for any die-hard Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan."--"Time to Play" ..".all I have to say is 'Wow.'... This book is, simply put, beautiful...if you were ever curious about the history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there is no better place to start than right here."--"Geekadelphia" ..".a must own for any TMNT fan, no question."--"Media Mikes" ..".a whirlwind of sketches, animation stills, and behind-the-scenes photos thoroughly documenting the evolution of the beloved turtle franchise... So curl up with a pizza (no anchovies) and relive your childhood of skateboards, arcades, sunglasses, and some serious bad guy ass-kicking."--"Mania" ..".a wonderful book for fans and non-fans alike."--"The HD Room" ..".a must have for turtle fans...there is one picture in the book that nearly had me in tears. It's a picture of the staff of the 90's turtles cartoon and seeing James Avery and Rob Paulsen was overwhelming me with nostalgia...It truly is a love letter to the creators, fans and staff who had taken part in this legendary franchise."--"Otakus & Geeks" ..".treats the Green Machine with the reverence and respect their rich lore and history deserves...Farago and his team cared to much to not give the Turtles the respect they deserve. It drips from every page how passionate they are about the turtles and how important it was to them to get this right."--"We The Nerdy" "A wonderfully designed art book with just enough interesting factoids, it's the perfect complement to the empty pizza boxes littering your swanky sewer pad."--"Chico News & Review" ..". it is tremendous. Everything is covered, from the first Turtle drawing to the upcoming blockbuster film, via toys, TV shows and Vanilla Ice's Ninja Rap. Full of interviews, the book is a particularly useful tool in finding out the stories behind some of the lesser known chapters of TMNT history. Perhaps most exciting, it features lots of leaflets and press releases and such stuck onto the pages, like a demented scrapbooker has been enhancing stock in the warehouse. This book is must have for Ninja Turtles fans, or for people who like things that are brilliant. Just don't expect me to lend you mine."--"Den of Geek" ..".what makes this book truly great is the way Farago's writing immerses you in this franchise's history. You can tell he had a more than extensive interview with all of the talent and guides us through every era in an engaging fashion..." Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History" is a must buy if you're a big fan of the heroes in a half shell. Even if you think you know plenty about the franchise's history, this is still an engrossing read that'll shed so much more light on its story and the constant supply of artwork and inserts is thoroughly entertaining. It's a very well-made collection that's full of treats and the trip down memory lane kept this TMNT fan smiling virtually the entire time. If you love TMNT, I strongly recommend adding this to your collection."--"Comic Vine" ..". almost a museum on the printed page. Farago puts together an impressive package; even the text shows enthusiasm for the subject and appreciation for their creators and stewards."--"Red Headed Mule" "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History."..a gorgeously detailed coffee table book written by San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum curator Andrew Farago, is exactly what the title promises. It explores, across some 192 pages, everything a fan could possibly want to know about Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael...If you're a series fan, an armchair comic book historian or simply a geek looking for a coffee table book to rival the famed"Transformers Vault" in both overall comprehension and phenomenal pack-ins, then pick up your copy today."--"GeekDad" "Any fan of the turtles, of any iteration, are going to love this book."--"Nerds in Hell" "Bottom line is, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History" is a must have and companion guide for any TMNT fan."--"Alien Bee" ..".such a well written and expertly laid out book that it would be hard to imagine a fan of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" not wanting to pick up a copy of the book."--"BioGamerGirl" ..".after looking through it for just a few minutes, we want to let every Shellhead know that this book will blow your mind.

Nice big book for your money, top quality paper used for the pages, lots of inserts, a replica print of the very first issue of TMNT, lots of information regarding the different incarnations of the turtles, and lots of top quality art work. my only disappointment with it was the lack of pages on the video games, but aside from that, almost everything is covered, definitely worth having on your bookcase.

This is great book. If you just like to watch tmnt cartoons or read comics and don't care about what's happening behind the scene that probably this book is not for you. But if you would like to know more about the history of turtles, from how it all begun to the most recent events in the tmnt world. It is very colorful book, has a lot of beautiful pictures and inserts (colored and b&w).
Also as a bonus there are poster A3 size of the picture represented on the cover and reprint first issue of TMNT comic which is a very neat touch.

What a beautiful book! I bought it as a Valentine's present for my husband, TMNT is the one of the first things we found in common when we met. We don't 'do' Valentine's so I just used it as an excuse to buy such a lovely thing (so it's his but it's really mine!).
It's comprehensive, going through the entire TMNT history including the not so great parts, and includes artist impressions and sketches. I feel like I need to wear little white gloves when looking through it.
It also comes with a copy of the first ever comic book. I was born three months after this was published so I missed the original comic books. This is now one of my favourite possessions. Highly recommend for any TMNT lover.
