Status: Partially Found

Mexican publisher Division was given the rights to publish the Archie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures comics alongside fresh material, much like how Fleetway in the UK was given such rights. Whereas Fleetway produced gag strips more in line with the TV series than the progressively darker main comic storyline, Division went in a different direction and started their own, new plots with recurring new characters created by Mexican artists. Even the reprinted stories were often redrawn. The series lasted 56 issues, plus 6 trade collections of stories.


  • Manuel Conde (writer, penciler, inker)
  • Roberto Marugán (colorist)
  • Armando de la Torre (colorist)
  • Iris Nogueira (colorist, inker)
  • Alejandra Larregui (colorist)
  • Paco Baca (pencils)
  • Hector Gonzales (colorist)
  • Liliana Huerta (writer)
  • Victor Guiza (penciler, inker, writer)

Manuel Conde wrote most of the new story content. He and Iris Nogueira travelled up to the USA to meet up with Mirage Studios and start work on the new comic, starting with re-illustrated Archie storylines.

New Characters

The series featured several original characters created by Mexican artists, including:

  • Tiburon (Shark)
  • Itchy
  • La Cosquilla (The Tickle)
  • Moykat
  • Thermi
