Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures Mini Series #1 $1.25 Canadian Price Variant Issue Notes:
1st Appearances of Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady in comics. Newsstand AND Direct Variant CPV exist
#7 in this year's Top 100.
Angelo notes: Not one but THREE first comic book appearances; Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady! Prices in 2020 and 2021 have gone up for many grades. In 2021: 9.6 CGC NEWSSTAND copy sold in January for $1250, an 8.5 CGC NEWSSTAND copy sold in March for $400.
Ben notes: This entry is for the $1.25 NEWSSTAND CPV. It is such an interesting circumstance that in addition to the single-price NEWSSTAND copies, Archie also produced single-price DIRECT EDITION copies of this issue as well (in other words, rather than placing both $1.00 and $1.25 CAN on all direct editions, they produced two distinct batches, a $1.00 direct edition and a $1.25 direct edition). Having observed a solid number of both newsstand and direct edition CPV sales since the time this issue began to "take off" in collector interest (and value), our median advisor value for NEWSSTAND $1.25 CPV copies came in higher than the median advisor value for DIRECT EDITION $1.25 CPV copies this year, so we are presenting separate listings/values accordingly. However: please note that CGC "lumps together" both types by cover price on their census, making it impossible to know how many of their census copies are newsstand versus direct; so the CGC count number you see is inclusive of BOTH types and just gives the $1.25 cover price census count for the issue number at large. Also, see my separate two-part post on this issue: Part I & Part II
CGC label note: 1st comic book appearance of Krang, Bebop & Rocksteady. $1.25 cover price.
