TMNT #73 is here – The Longest-Running TMNT Comic Ever!

TMNT #73 from IDW was released today which now makes the IDW TMNT title the longest-running (issue-wise) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic ever! This fantastic achievement is six years in the making, beginning its journey in August, 2011 when IDW released the first issue.

And, as most of you know, I created a special Retailer Exclusive (RE) cover for this issue that I’m super-excited about.  I don’t yet have any copies of this variant in hand but I hope to have them soon.  Keep an eye out for updates on this variant’s arrival.

Congrats IDW on a monumental and special issue…TMNT #73.

Kickstarter Alert ! TMNT Action Figure Encyclopedia

Attention all TMNT Action Figure fans!!  A new Kickstarter campaign just went live that is right up your alley…the TMNT Action Figure Encyclopedia.   It’s being billed as “perhaps the largest action figure and accessory book ever” and, from the looks of it, I don’t doubt it.  It will also be submitted to Guinness Book of World Records as a possible record-setting event!  Here are some highlights of this TMNT encyclopedia:

  • Over 3,500 Action Figures, Statues, Weapons, Accessories, & Vehicles
  • TMNT Glossary
  • Over 3 years in the making
  • The most extensive and largest Action Figure Book ever

If you want a copy, head on over to Kickstarter and support this book !  This would be an amazing reference for Turtles collectors and a really neat addition to anyone’s collection.  I just backed it and I’d personally love to see this happen.

Announcing Kevin Eastman’s Kickstarter – “Drawing Blood: The Story Behind The Stories”


Awesome new project that Kevin Eastman is looking to start up with a Kickstarter campaign that launches on Aug. 1. Here’s the official press release:


TUESDAY JULY 18th, 2017





Who is Shane Bookman?

Creators Kevin Eastman and David Avallone, with Artists Ben Bishop and Troy Little, want to tell you his story with their new comic book series, DRAWING BLOOD.

In 1992, Shane “Books” Bookman, and his brother Paul, released their scrappy indie creation on the unsuspecting comic book universe: The Radically Rearranged Ronin Ragdolls. To their great surprise, everyone went wild for the adventures of three feline Katana wielding mutant cats, and a multi-million dollar franchise was born.

After more than a decade and a half of global success – comics/action figures/movies and just about anything else you could sell with a Ragdoll on it — the creators imploded. Too young and too naïve to know how to handle the sudden pressures of wealth and fame, they split up, and the franchise eventually sold.

Now “Books” is hitting his forties (hard), his money all gone, his artistic inspiration tapped out, and his very life in danger from the loan sharks his crooked business partner failed to tell him about before committing suicide. It’s hard enough to recover from a catastrophic encounter with the hit and run driver called “early success,” without having to worry about killers chasing you all over town.

Drawing Blood is a dark-comic-drama (dramadey?), the story behind the stories, a look inside the twisted life of a professional cartoonist. A roller-coaster of show biz and sex, fame and infamy, controlled substances and uncontrolled artists, genius and goons, this series takes you into the darkest corners of a mad world only talked about in the hotel bars of a Comic Con.

Drawing Blood is co-created by Eastman and Avallone, with scripts by Avallone. Primary art by Ben Bishop, with some sequences by Kevin Eastman and Troy Little and a Radically Rearranged Ronin Ragdolls one-shot drawn by Little. Variant covers will be by Kevin Eastman and a constellation of comic book stars.
