The very first printing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 featured a cover inspired by Frank Miller’s Ronin comic book series. The first issue had a print run of only 3,000 copies resulting in extreme rarity of the firest appearance of Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The Copper Age series was created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The comic was closer in size to a magazine and featured black and white art on the inside.
Today, the first printing of the first issue is highly sought after and very valuable. Prices range, but you can expect to pay over a thousand dollars for a decent copy. That is, if you can find one.
