Initially based on the massively popular [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 first cartoon]], the [[ArchieComics Archie]]-published ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures'' eventually became one of the strangest incarnations of the franchise, and one that fans still remember with some fondness.

* AdaptedOut: Casey Jones never appears in the series. Oddly enough though, he is mentioned in "Year of the Turtle," so the Turtles did apparently encounter him at one time, though the meeting is never shown.

* ListOfTransgressions: In #23, a space criminal named Bellybomb is sentenced to a toxic prison planet for seventeen life sentences for extortion, armed robbery, hijacking, kidnapping, torture, murder, man-eating, brain poaching, soul thievery... and impersonating a primitive deity named Bob.

** A story that took place when the Turtles were little kids showed that they used to all wear red bandannas before Splinter made them were differently-colored bandannas to make it easier to tell them apart. This was a reference to the fact that all of the Turtles wore red bandannas in the original Mirage comics.

* PaintItBlack: For quite a number of issues, Raph wore an all-black ninja body suit so he could better blend into the shadows. It was a holdover from when he and the others were [[ItMakesSenseInContext intergalactic wrestlers]]. While the other three got rid of their costumes as soon as they could (they were much more outlandish than Raph's), Raph kept his for quite a while because [[RuleOfCool he liked it]]. Even after he stopped wearing the whole thing, he still wore the pants for a few issues before finally dumping it altogether.
** The latter is justified, because those several issues were how long it took for the Turtles to get home, allowing Raph to get his regular gear.

* {{Rewrite}}: It is eventually revealed that the mutagen did not change the turtles into their present form, but that the turtles instead grew into teenagehood--a blatant contradiction of the established backstory from the cartoon.

The book had an environmentalist tone, with {{green aesop}}s galore. It also introduced young readers to political topics such as [[TheApartheidEra Apartheid]], Chinese occupation of Tibet, the UsefulNotes/GulfWar, and even showing the more unpleasant aspects of Christopher Columbus' "discovery" of the Western Hemisphere and the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings. While the quality of the actual stories was variable and debatable, several of the concepts introduced here proved quite popular with fans of the franchise, some of whom continue to hope that elements from the book will be introduced in further incarnations.
