UPDATE #4: Variant Cover for TMNT Vol. V, #73 (IDW) – Kickstarter – Final 24 hours & CGC Signature Series !



OK everyone…we’re down to the final 24 hours of this campaign and we’re just $400 away from upgrading this variant to premium sketch-quality heavy stock!  THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE!  Let’s make it happen!

And, just to help make the final push that much sweeter, I’m pleased to announce that for any signed, sketched, or hand-colored copies, CGC Signature Series grading WILL be an option!   Cost for CGC Signature Series will be $60 per book.  You’ll be able to opt in and pay for this at a later date as long as you’ve backed one of the signed copy tiers…ONE Signed Copy ($20), ONE Signed Copy + ONE Raw Copy ($25), ONE Hand-Colored Copy + ONE Raw Copy ($100).

Have a fantastic weekend and keep the momentum going!  If you have any questions, feel free to let me know.


UPDATE #3: Variant Cover for TMNT Vol. V, #73 (IDW) – Kickstarter – Back Cover Design Revealed !



There are less than 5 days remaining for you to back the Kickstarter for TMNT #73 Cover RE TMNT: A Collection.  The project is fully funded and this variant cover will be a reality this August when TMNT #73 is released.  If you’re waiting until August to just buy a copy when it’s released, that’s totally fine.  It will be available right here at TMNT: A Collection this August.  But remember, ONLY Kickstarter backers get to see both the Front and Back cover artwork right now (…the back cover was just recently revealed).  In addition, there are some really cool options that only Kickstarter backers will get the option to choose.  If you’re going to buy this cover anyway, then why not just back it now?  This way you’re “in the know” and will be able to see the amazing front cover artwork and back cover design.  So, the clock is ticking…only a few short days from campaign-close.  Once it’s over, so is the window for you to get participate in any optional upgrades…

UPDATE #2: Variant Cover for TMNT Vol. V, #73 (IDW) – Kickstarter – Cover Artwork Revealed !



We’ve reached yet another major milestone!  The second of five planned Stretch Goals was just met…which means that Jim Lawson’s custom artwork for this cover has now been revealed!  BUT, this amazing artwork has only been revealed to Kickstarter backers.  So, if you haven’t yet backed this project then what are you waiting for?  Get yourself over to Kickstarter, back this project, and then check out Jim’s amazing cover artwork.  You won’t be disappointed.  And, if you’re planning to wait and just buy this variant when it’s released in August (which is totally fine BTW), just know that ONLY Kickstarter backers will be receiving the incentive as part of STRETCH GOAL #3 (if it’s met).  That stretch goal can only be met with lots of support so backing the project NOW could be the difference that makes it happen for everyone.  So, be the hero and become a Kickstarter backer!


UPDATE #1: Variant Cover for TMNT Vol. V, #73 (IDW) – Kickstarter – Cover Artist Revealed !



Great news!  The Kickstarter project is funded and so TMNT #73 Cover RE TMNT: A Collection is happening!  Not only that, but the cover artwork submitted to Nickelodeon for this cover has been approved !!  And now, we just met the very first Stretch Goal of the project…which means the cover artist has been revealed!   JIM LAWSON’s amazing Turtles art will be the cover for this one-of-a-kind variant.

As is the case with many of you, I’m a huge fan of Jim’s Turtles. There’s just something about them that captivates and provides me a bit of nostalgia. I’ve missed seeing Jim’s Turtles on a regular basis and, with his Turtles work so prolific during the Mirage Studios era, I really wanted to bring them back in a special way. What a tremendous honor it is to have Jim’s artwork grace this exclusive cover! It’s a fantastic piece of work and, once you see it, I’m confident you’ll agree.

So, if you haven’t yet backed this project then head over to Kickstarter!  Because, if we meet STRETCH GOAL #2, only Kickstarter backers get to see the cover artwork first…an exclusive bonus for backing this project and meeting STRETCH GOAL #2.

Thanks for making this happen Turtles fans!  Keep the momentum going because you’ll all want to see this cover art.  I promise…it’s awesome.
