Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Munden’s Bar

Back in the 1980s, a fantastic comic book called Grimjack was published by independent publisher, First Comics. Grimjack was a gritty, creator-driven series written by John Ostrander and illustrated (initially) by Tim Truman. One of the features of the comic was a series of back-up stories called Munden’s Bar — typically light-hearted escapades of drunken, rough-and-tumble aliens that hung out at a seedy water hole at the nexus of the universe. Several artists and writers contributed and occasionally characters from other stories (and other publishers) crossed over. In issue #26, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made an appearance, written and illustrated by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Here’s the story.

If you liked that, try another Munden’s Bar story by Brian Bolland. You can see the diversity of the stories — this one’s a horror tale.
