We thought we would celebrate the upcoming release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (see my review) with a TMNT related giveaway!

Up for grabs is Insight EditionsTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History.  When they included "Ultimate" in the tital, they weren't kidding around!  This book weighs in at 192 pages and includes the history of the Turtles all the way from their humble beginnings in black-and-white comics created in a home studio in Dover, New Hampshire, to their multimillion-dollar breakout success. There's even a chapter on the film that hits theaters this Friday!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History relates the amazing story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from their humble beginnings in the pages of a cult comic book, to their enduring status as cultural icons. Beginning with the creative spark that led comic book artists Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird to envision these unlikely heroes, this lavishly illustrated book tracks the Turtles' phenomenal explosion in popularity as they became mainstays of kids' TV and the protagonists of one of 1990s' biggest box office hits. The Ultimate Visual History also looks at the periods when the Turtles briefly slipped out of fashion, showing how enthusiasm for these evergreen warriors was kept alive by new comic books, animated shows, and, of course, some hugely imaginative merchandising.

Bringing together exceptional visuals, including exclusive comic book artwork, candid behind-the-scenes shots, rare merchandise, and other never-before-seen material, The Ultimate Visual History will uncover the previously untold story of the multimillion-dollar franchise. Featuring interviews with key players, including Eastman and Laird, and the talented teams behind the cartoons, comics, movies, and merchandise, this comprehensive look at the TMNT phenomenon leaves no shell unturned.

The style of Donnie is based off of the design seen in the latest television show on Nickelodeon. Each turtle has it's own style based off of an incarnation of the turtles.

A few years ago I actually found this at my neighborhood comic shop on free comic book day for 25 cents.

Hopefully I can win this and add it to my collection along side the 25th anniversary edition of the first issue of TMNT.

This would be awesome to have!!

Looks like they took the different cartoon adaptations and made each turtle resemble them. Don is the new nickelodeon style, Raph is the Eastman Laird version, and mikey looks like 90's cartoon. Don't know if Leo is from Eastman Laird or 2003?
