    hello all

    Anyone know how/where to get the Dario Brizuela cover that was released up in Canada?

      • rich

        Hi David. The only place I’ve seen it for sale online is eBay and from only this seller. I’m pretty sure he’s had this one for sale for a long time but it just ended. You might ask if he has anymore copies or knows where one can be found.

  2. Me

    man, anyone else having a hard time finding the RI of this?

    • rich

      I actually haven’t looked for it. I’ll get it in my monthly shipment so I didn’t try. Probably due to it being a 25 copy incentive and a title aimed at younger kids.

      • Me

        well, after searching high and low i now have all covers !….YES!…thanks for keeping this site going, without it i may have not gotten back into TMNT comics – and what type of life would that have been?!? 😉

      • Me


        do you mind if i ask where you order from?…being able to pre-order the RI covers would definitely save me some time & heartache 😀

        • rich

          I order from two places each month. Discount Comic Book Service (DCBS) I use for the incentives, trades, and hardcovers. I order the rest from my local comic shop via Comixology.

    First time posting, long time lurker. I love your site! Keep up the great work!

    I came here today to ask if you happened to get the subscription variant for the animated issue #1? My shop didn’t get any and I have been subscribed to tmnt since issue one an the animated series since free comic book day. I’m not sure what the deal is but I hope I didn’t miss out :'(

    • rich

      Hey Josh, my shop also did not get the Subscription variant that I ordered. They told me they’d request one and that it should be in within a couple weeks. Not sure why they didn’t get it…they’ve gotten them before for me.
      Thanks for visiting and glad you like the site!

    Comiclist still has this as the 17th? Is that right?

    • rich

      Diamond moved it up a week to July 10 a couple weeks ago and it’s still July 10 this morning. I’ll keep monitoring it though.

  5. Craig

    So I just realized that the regular cover you’re showing here is actually the Free Comic Book day cover, and the other one must be the real regular cover becuase that’s Dario B. and not Ciro Nieli’s art.

    • rich

      Thanks Craig. I hadn’t noticed that. I’ll try to find the Ciro Neili cover.

  6. Mike

    Isn’t the top part of the Eastman cover just an early variant for the main series? or is it just because the pose itself is pretty standard?

    • rich

      not sure…but I think it’s meant to show the Turtle’s transition from the comic books to the cartoon.

      • Mike

        It’s the same as the cover of Previews they had from last year.
