What It Is
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History is a 192-page book that details everything there is to know about the pop culture icons. Written by Andrew Farago, the book explores each iteration of the Turtles from the past to the present, including their humble beginnings in black-and-white comics to the hit Nickelodeon animated show to the Michael Bay-produced live-action movie. Fans can learn where it all began and follow the journey that lead the Ninja Turtles to their position as four of the most loved characters of all time. The book features rare art and artifacts, including a copy of the very first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. There are also tons of drawings and photographs, and cool inserts such as fan club letters, promotional items, and script pages. There's a good balance between art and text, and interviews with key figures in the franchise including co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.
