The TMNT #1 Production Negatives Debut @ Granite State Comicon 2022 !!

It’s now been a week since The TMNT #1 Production Negatives made their public debut at Granite State Comicon 2022!  I was hoping to get this posted much sooner than this but the combination of a whirlwind convention schedule and 4,442 miles of road travel (nearly 65 hours of driving!) really took its toll.

After nearly a year of planning and preparation, the exhibit came together even better than I had expected.  Plus, the area Granite Con provided for the exhibit was ideal – nearly 40 feet of space!  Over the course of two days, thousands of fans passed by the exhibit (including the entirety of Kevin Eastman’s signing line) to view these amazing artifacts in person.  I must have personally spoken with hundreds of comic book fans (nearly losing my voice in the process) but was it ever worth it!  The feedback I received regarding the exhibit was overwhelmingly positive and the backlit displays really brought The TMNT #1 Production Negatives to life like never before.  But perhaps the most meaningful feedback came from Kevin Eastman himself, who stopped by to see the exhibit just prior to the show opening on Saturday.  It was an incredible honor for me to personally present these these amazing artifacts of comic book history to Kevin; having him be one of the first to witness the full exhibit is something I’ll cherish for a lifetime.  The pictures here don’t quite capture the full grandeur of the display but hopefully they at least provide some idea of just how incredibly awesome this exhibit is.

Now that the exhibit has been proven a success, the goal is to begin traveling The TMNT #1 Production Negatives to shows all across the USA (maybe even throughout North America).  Hopefully the exhibit will be visiting a few shows next year, with the ultimate goal of having The TMNT #1 Production Negatives widely available at conventions in 2024 – the year that marks the 40th Anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  Stay tuned…
