    IDW said that the Jetpack cover was done by Mateus when I asked last week.

    Hey,
    I had asked for cover A but when I visited my store today I had RI. I think they only ordered 10 as there were no more on the shelf. I was wondering if its better to get an RI (@ 1:10) or if its better to look for the Eastman covers?

    (I asked for A to continue the City Fall covers seeing as I am just picking up one cover per issue) Really liked this issue!

    Now I am thouroughly confused as to why JP released the #23 covers and pricing before the #22 covers. Anyone know why? And bless Jetpack for lowering there price of the 250 print books. I still can’t bring myself to purchase a RE annual book.

      Mike, the Jetpack site doesn’t always get updated with the TMNT variants very quickly. It is odd that #23 was added before a couple of the #22 ones are there.

    I now know I will buy several of those jetpack black covers that thing is sick and hopefully I can get mr Eastman to sign it for me if he comes back to the New Orleans comic con in February

        Preference, Eastman will supposedly be returning to Jetpack Comics in 2014. I will make the trip again.

      Yeah, in a collecting sense, acquiring the B cover it’s definitely easiest with the 1:1 ratio. However, the higher ratio B covers tend to be more valuable over time.

        its going to take a while for “value” to have some real meaning on most of these… unless they are the 1:100 books.. haha

          I don’t know…with less than 20K copies in total being sold every issue this doesn’t flood the market with all that many copies. Anything that makes a cover more rare than a regular (like 1:4 ratio) makes it immediately harder to find after release.

    “*2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio”… I hate that

      Hi, tell me more about what you dislike about the 1:1 ratio of A & B covers. Do you just hate that there are 2 versions of the regular cover?

        Yes, I buy my comics from a store that is on another city, so I’m never sure I’ll get the cover I want, I hate when publishers decide to do 1:1 ratio covers. I know it’s not a big deal, but hey comics cost me money and when I buy something I want to be happy about it.
