Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Portfolio (1989, 1992) – Various

4 out of 5

There’s really no need to rate this; these are just collections of 8.5 x 11 printed artpieces that Mirage would collect in the mentioned years, done up by our favorite artists from the publisher: Eric Talbot, Michael Dooney, Jim Lawson, etc., and Eastman & Laird, of course.  On the plus side, these are choice images – not that stuff that you see when you just google these names.  The styles are nicely varied, as are the mediums: pastels, paints.

The star gets knocked off because they chose to bundle this in… flimsy 1-pocket folders.  The 1989 edition has a cheapo silhouette of the gang; the 1992 has a zoom-in of one of the images.  Something a bit more substantial to house the art (even just a thicker folder) and a more unique design on that cover would really make these standout and not just seem like extras for which you probably overpaid.
