I don't know where to ask questions, So I'll try the newest post. I was thinking of maybe picking up a few of Mirage's titles other than the TMNT. Besides Gizmo, are there any of their other titles in particular that you would recommend? Thanks!

@Morris,

That's a bit of a tough one. Non-TMNT Mirage stuff is a little harder to come by and can be pretty obscure. I actually haven't read as much of it as I should have. But...

I'd recommend a few of their anthologies that aren't necessarily TMNT related (but have 1 or 2 TMNT stories in them), like Grunts #1 and the Mirage Mini Comics Collection. A lot of variety to those and they feature stories by all of the Mirage staffers and collaborates, so they're like a studio jam session.

Jim Lawson's 4-issue Bade Biker & Orson miniseries is pretty enjoyable stuff; Lawson in his earlier style before he got too angular.

It's more of a Tundra/Heavy Metal thing, but Melting Pot by Eastman, Talbot and Bisley is a lot of stupid violence with great art and a nonsense story. It's dumb and it's brutal; like if you tried to string a bunch of album covers together and form a narrative around them.

Truth be told, much of Mirage's non-TMNT output isn't very good. Gizmo's the cream, along with their brief Usagi Yojimbo and Space Usagi runs. But stuff like Prime Slime Tales and Rock Cola are indie in a way that doesn't float my boat.
