I just received details about the TMNT exclusive that is being created by Kevin Eastman Studios for the Alamo City Comic Con (ACCC) in San Antonio, TX from September 26-28, 2014. Just like the Capital City Comic Con (CCCC) TMNT exclusive, this ACCC exclusive isn’t associated with IDW.
The TMNT exclusive for the ACCC will be billed as the TMNT Official 30th Anniversary Edition #0 and will have two variant covers. The ACCC TMNT exclusive is similar in nature to the CCCC TMNT exclusive, given that it will have two variant covers and contains artwork by Kevin Eastman. However, the similarities end there; the ACCC TMNT Official 30th Anniversary Edition #0 will have completely unique covers and different artwork than was in the CCCC TMNT exclusive. Check out the Intro Page from the ACCC exclusive for more details.
The first cover available for the TMNT Official 30th Anniversary Edition #0 is the Regular full-color variant with a cover by Mike DeBalfo. Mike was the cover artist for TMNT #34 Cover RE Amazing Comic Con. Colors are done by colorist Ula Mos and the back cover is blank. This cover is limited to 500 copies and each one is individually (mechanically) numbered. UPDATE 9/11: All available pre-sale copies have been sold…remaining copies will be sold at the ACCC Sept. 26-28.
The second of the covers for the TMNT Official 30th Anniversary Edition #0 is the Artist Proof Sketch variant with a black & white version of the same Mike DeBalfo cover art used for the Regular cover. The back cover is blank, just like the Regular cover. This edition is limited to only 100 copies and each will be individually (mechanically) numbered. Cost is $75 each (which includes shipping in the Continental U.S.). UPDATE 9/11: Low qty. remaining.
Both covers (the Regular and Artist Proof Sketch) are available now via pre-show sale through Sept. 15 (covers will ship on Sept. 30). Remaining quantities of both covers will be available for purchase at the Alamo City Comic Con Sept. 26-28.
