Turtle Power!

The REAL genius of the concept is that there are FOUR characters that you like. If you want the toys or something Turtle related like these comics, you HAVE to get all four of them. It makes no sense to have a Raphael and Donatello without the other two. You can pass on Shredder, or Splinter, or April but you can never split the boys up.

That is a genius concept actually! I've got to write that one down for later.

Just picked up the second volume of the Mirage Comics Collection Hardcover the other day. Its easy to see how this concept ended up turning so many heads.

The art from those earliest issues had that kung fu intensity that allowed you to buy the high concept. It worked and works in every incarnation it has. It's quite remarkable actually.
