Now, I'd have to say that I probably prefer the comics, especially the first several issues drawn by Eastman and Laird. The grittiness of the artwork is so great, and the paneling seems very dynamic (at least, to a comic noob like me) - makes it feel very film noir
. My first exposure has been through the Ultimate Collection series, reading all of the original black and white first. But I'm also collecting the color classics, as well. The old cartoon will always be nostalgic, but watching it now, it's very juvenile. It's as you said in some other thread, Ace - best to live on with just your memories and not revisit it

The reboot is also very good. Eastman is writing
, the art being left to other folks. They started off with long-time Mirage and TMNT artist Dan Duncan, but he was replaced in #13 by Steve Kuhn (who's art is not nearly as good). New origins, but very believable and still enjoyable for seasoned fans. I definitely recommend it.

The big action figure-type sets would make sense, but I REALLY want some quality TMNT minifigs. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
