‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History’ Is Mondo Bodacious [Video Review]

Subscribe to ComicsAlliance on

We were intrigued last week when Nickelodeon gave us a first-look inside Andrew Farago’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History, but now that we’ve finally gotten our hands on a copy of the 192-page hardcover published by Insight Editions, we can confirm our initial assumption: It’s a righteous tribute to 30 years of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s party dudes.

It’s not that we expected anything less from Farago, himself the Curator and Gallery Manager of San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum (currently home to a TMNT retrospective exhibit), it’s just that the past thirty decades of comic books, cartoons, movies, toys, video games and everything else have resulted in dense pop culture phenomenon. Until now the most authoritative text has been the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Artobiography by Eastman, which is still essential reading for any Turtles fan. The Ultimate Visual History, however, expands its view outside of the original TMNT comics and delivers a fulfilling portrait of the wider TMNT phenomenon wrapped in a full-color cover by Eastman and Mighty Mutanimals and Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa creator Ryan Brown.

See what we mean in our full video review.
