TMNT: The Last Ronin #4 – Variant Covers by Jim Lawson



The much-anticipated penultimate issue of TMNT: The Last Ronin will be hitting comic shops this fall.  To date, The Last Ronin series from IDW has been a major success, generating record sales and amassing over 125 variant covers through just the first three issues.  But, hang on to your hats people – you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

I’m pleased to announce that TMNT: A Collection will have two very special variant covers for TMNT: The Last Ronin #4 featuring custom artwork by legendary Mirage Studios TMNT artist Jim Lawson.  Both covers will display the same amazing artwork by Jim Lawson; two unique pieces – one on the front cover and one on the back.  Cover A will be in full color (colored by the extremely talented Beejay Hawn); Cover B will be Black & White (featuring Jim’s deep, rich, classic Mirage-era black tones).
