    All of those covers are nice. I’d love to see a book of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles covers if it hasn’t been done yet.

    • rich

      There’s a book of Eastman covers coming out soon. Would be nice to have a book of all covers though…totally agree.

    Chad :

    I’m still looking for one as well

    I finally got one off eBay a few days ago but that was just the 2nd auction I’ve seen for them. Don’t have any other leads at the moment.

          • mrmaczaps

            just scored one off of Ebay… not a bad price, paid a bit more (& a bit less) for the Retailer Exclusive one…. Not bad really.

            • rich

              I haven’t seen them on eBay at all yet. I don’t even see one that’s already been sold.

              • mrmaczaps

                I saw one, buy it now, and i said hell yeah, i’m down for it at that price! haven’t come across another one yet. also emailed the con directly about getting copies.

  3. Sam

    I started trying to find out more info on the C2E2 variant on the technodrom.
    Rich do you have any info on it?

  4. Chad

    Just saw there is a c2e2 sketch variant cover for this one

  5. Chad

    Jetpack now has #21 variant for purchase (also ships in April)

    • rich

      Thanks Craig. I’m trying to get confirmation on this as well as purchasing details since DF doesn’t have it listed in their pre-sales. Once I know for sure then I can put it up (or reply here).

      • rich

        I never heard back from DF but I’m starting to see this cover solicited many places so it looks to be happening. Thanks for the head’s up! 🙂

  6. Coro

    So wait a minute…I got into my LCS and tell them I want some special variant that is only available to subscriptions? How is this different that my normal pulls? LCS don’t subscribe to books….Im confused. This is new to me.

    • rich

      Yeah, this is new to me as well. I’m not exactly sure how this is going to work. However, I think when they say “Subscriptions” they mean pulls. Your normal pull at the LCS is really your subscription to a title so I think if you have a pull set up then you are supposed to get this edition. I’ll only really know when ordering begins for April books on Feb. 1. I’ll see what my LCS and my online shop have available for ordering and go from there.

      • Coro

        Just got back from my LCS and they were able to put that on order for me. They said there was no limit to how many they could reserve for me so I put 3 on order. I figure I can try to resell some of them or something since it sounds pretty limited. The guy said its a new thing IDW is doing and they did it last month with My Little Pony…interesting

        • rich

          Hey Coro, I just ordered my copies today as well. I thought about buying extras to sell afterward but I’m still sitting on 15 Hastings RE covers for Secret History #1…:(

            • rich

              Hey Chad, is it a Hastings for #18 you’re looking for. If so, email me and we’ll work out the details.

              • Chad

                I have all 4 for #18 I need a Hastings for #1 and foot clan #1

                • rich

                  Chad, my bad. I didn’t mean #18…I meant Secret History #1. I do have some Hastings covers left over for that so go ahead and email me. I don’t have any Hastings for #1 though. Sorry about the confusion.
