“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 7/16/21

* Sorry folks – a glitch kept two weeks worth of “Jabbers” from posting!

Whenever I played the Konami Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game I always played Raphael even though Raphael was obviously the worst character in the game. Loyal to a fault.

No range. Raph had zero range.

I would occasionally play Michelangelo just for the sake of variety though.

Michelangelo’s alright. That guy knows how to party!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 Third Printing, first appearance of Shredder, Splinter, and the Turtles, signed by Kevin Eastman, Very Good Plus (4.5), $799.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3, third appearance of the Turtles and first appearance of the Utroms, Very Fine Minus (7.5), $299.



Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #51, first appearance of Jennika, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $149.



Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #72, final issue of the ongoing Archie series, Very Fine (8.0), $149.


Whenever I played the Konami X-Men arcade I always played Nightcrawler because Nightcrawler was obviously the best character in that game. Obvious S-Tier character.

Come to think of it, I would play Wolverine or Colossus occasionally, again for varieties’ sake.

Sorry for lying to you when I said I always played Raphael and Nightcrawler.

I guess that I just usually played Raphael and Nightcrawler.

Until next week!
