The TMNT Comic Strip

The daily comic strip was a version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that ran in newspapers. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic strip was started on December 10, 1990 by Creators Syndicate as a daily. The strip ceased publication in January 1997. It could formerly be read online at GoComics (dead link).

The strip ran seven days a week, but (at least for part of its run) the Saturday strips consisted only of fan art and was not part of the storyline, which was published Monday—Friday. The Sunday edition featured a mix of puzzles and fan art early on, but later switched entirely to a fan-art format.

Among the creators who worked on the strip were Ryan Brown, Dan Berger, Jim Lawson, Michael Dooney, Steve Lavigne and Stephen Murphy (credited as Dean Clarrain).

Some of the TMNT daily strips have been reprinted in Comics Revue.

There is no officially licensed book reprint collection of the daily comic strips.
