Infestation 2 TMNT #01 (IDW)



Here’s the info. on the variants for Infestation 2 TMNT #1 from IDW.  Available on March 7, 2012.

  1. Cover A (Menton J. Matthews III; a.k.a. menton3) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., if shops order only 1 copy they get Cover A; if they order 4 copies of Cover A they can then purchase one copy of Cover B)
  2. Cover B (Livio Ramondelli) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., shops must order 4 copies of Cover A in order to purchase one copy of Cover B)
  3. Cover RI (Mark Torres) – 10 copy Retailer Incentive “Tentacle Attack” interconnected – connects every Infestation 2 tie-in book (i.e., shops that order 8 copies of Cover A and 2 copies of Cover B get this one free)
  4. RI B Incentive – 25 copy Retailer Incentive TMNT Tattoos – NOTE: there is no variant cover for the RI B incentive for this issue but instead retailers will receive 25 temporary TMNT tattoos for every 25 copies ordered.  How retailers will distribute these to their customers is really up to them.  If your LCS orders a lot of TMNT comics each month then make sure to ask them to include a tattoo with your comics.  However, if your LCS orders fewer than 25 then they won’t be getting these tattoos and you’ll need to look elsewhere for them.

Infestation 2 Team Up (IDW)



Here’s the info. on the variants for Infestation 2 Team Up from IDW.  Available on February 29, 2012.  Please note that there is no TMNT involvement in this issue.  However, since I (and others) have ordered copies of this edition I will leave it here and on the “Upcoming Releases” list so we can still track its progress. 

  1. Cover A (Eric Powell) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., if shops order only 1 copy they get Cover A; if they order 4 copies of Cover A they can then purchase one copy of Cover B)
  2. Cover B (Bill Morrison) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., shops must order 4 copies of Cover A in order to purchase one copy of Cover B)
  3. Cover RI A (Livio Ramondelli) – Inter-connected “Tentacle Attack” Cover (connecting every Infestation 2 tie-in book); 10 copy Retailer Incentive (i.e., shops that order 8 copies of Cover A and 2 copies of Cover B get this one free)
  4. Cover RI B (Alan Robinson) – signed by Chris Ryall; 25 copy Retailer Incentive (i.e., shops that order 20 copies of Cover A and 5 copies of Cover B get this one free)

TMNT Micro-Series #03: Donatello (IDW)



Here’s the info. on the variants for the TMNT Micro Series #3: Donatello from IDW.  Available on February 29, 2012.

  1. Cover A (David Petersen) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., if shops order only 1 copy they get Cover A; if they order 4 copies of Cover A they can then purchase one copy of Cover B)
  2. Cover B (Valerio Schiti) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., shops must order 4 copies of Cover A in order to purchase one copy of Cover B)

TMNT Vol. V #007 (IDW)



Here’s the info. on the variants for TMNT #7 from IDW.  Available on February 22, 2012.  NOTE:  The previous Cover RI that I had listed here was not correct.  Doug TenNapel was actually the artist for that cover and he was originally supposed to do the #7 RI cover.  However, that fell through so Torres did the cover instead.  IDW sent notification of this change out but apparently the TenNapel cover art was never changed and it got associated with Mark Torres.  

  1. Cover A (Dan Duncan) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., if shops order only 1 copy they get Cover A; if they order 4 copies of Cover A they can then purchase one copy of Cover B)
  2. Cover B (Kevin Eastman) – regular cover shipped in a 4:1 ratio (A:B) in a single order (i.e., shops must order 4 copies of Cover A in order to purchase one copy of Cover B)
  3. Cover RI (Mark Torres) – 10 copy Retailer Incentive (i.e., shops that order 8 copies of Cover A and 2 copies of Cover B get this one free)

NEW feature! Pictures without watermarks!!



For those of you that have been asking, I’m pleased to announce that many of my IDW TMNT cover and cover artwork pictures will now be replaced with watermark-free versions 2-4 weeks prior to their release date.  I’ve just updated many of my previous posts with watermark-free pictures, specifically IDW TMNT #4, #5, Raphael, and the Ultimate Collection HC Volume 1.

Enjoy!


TMNT #005 (IDW) Cover Artwork



Just posted all the cover art for the upcoming TMNT #5, including the elusive Dan Duncan cover.  You can check them all out on my listing for the #5 Variant Covers.  Also note that there’s been a change to the Cover A & B designation.  Cover A has the Santolouco artwork and Cover B has the Dan Duncan artwork.   This was done so that they appear to be reflections of each other when held side by side.  I like it.
