TMNT Tribute book containing Ninja Turtles Samurai artwork submitted by artists as part of a Facebook contest.  1st Printing SDCC 2019 version (pre-dates the Regular version).

SDCC copies were from a special limited print run made just for SDCC 2019.  These copies were created prior (and separately) from the Regular print run, which was distributed online.  Differences between the versions include pagination & layout changes, text orientation / position / size changes, and text edits.  Identifying the versions can be done by:

(NOTE: this is not an exhaustive list of the differences)

  1. comparing the back covers
    • the SDCC version has a darker brown back cover; the Regular edition has a lighter brown back cover
  2. looking inside the book
    • Page 11 – the SDCC version has “by Gavin Moreshead” left aligned at the bottom; the Regular edition has “by Gavin Moreshead” right aligned at the bottom
    • Center of the book (where the staples are) – the SDCC version has artwork by Lee Wiley (left) and Zac Fitzsimmons (right); the Regular edition has full page (left & right) artwork by Alvaro Leon
