In Stores 5/13

Here are the highlights of books shipping to comic shops on Wednesday!
Pick of the Week
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Adventures (Volume 1): Heroes In a Half-Shell TP - Kicking off The Ninja Turtles' 25th anniversary, Archie will be collecting the much-loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Adventures series, beginning with the mini-series that adapted the first five episodes of the original TMNT cartoon series, with presumably more to come. Following this inital mini-series, the comic went in its own direction and some fan-favorite characters made their appearance in these fantastic comics, like Ray Fillet and the Mighty Mutanimals. On a side note, I've noticed 25th anniversary TMNT action figures that reissue the original run of toys that I grew up on, packaged with the original box art (minus those Turtle Points, and they tweaked some of the characters available on the back to allow for characters added later to be a part of the program). They also come with some of those original episodes of the cartoon too.
