    IDW said that the Jetpack cover was done by Mateus when I asked last week.

    I had asked for cover A but when I visited my store today I had RI. I think they only ordered 10 as there were no more on the shelf. I was wondering if its better to get an RI (@ 1:10) or if its better to look for the Eastman covers?

    (I asked for A to continue the City Fall covers seeing as I am just picking up one cover per issue) Really liked this issue!

      The RI is more rare but it’s all personal preference as to what cover to get.

  3. Mike

    Now I am thouroughly confused as to why JP released the #23 covers and pricing before the #22 covers. Anyone know why? And bless Jetpack for lowering there price of the 250 print books. I still can’t bring myself to purchase a RE annual book.

    • rich

      Mike, the Jetpack site doesn’t always get updated with the TMNT variants very quickly. It is odd that #23 was added before a couple of the #22 ones are there.

  4. Chad

    I now know I will buy several of those jetpack black covers that thing is sick and hopefully I can get mr Eastman to sign it for me if he comes back to the New Orleans comic con in February

    RE B Jetpack Cover, FCBD 2014, Silver Ink….

    Nuff Said

    • rich

      Is that your preference for next year or do you know something I don’t?

      • Mike

        Preference, Eastman will supposedly be returning to Jetpack Comics in 2014. I will make the trip again.

  6. Mike

    1 to 1 is good, buy both. stash the Eastman cover and then read the other.

    • rich

      Yeah, in a collecting sense, acquiring the B cover it’s definitely easiest with the 1:1 ratio. However, the higher ratio B covers tend to be more valuable over time.

      • Mike

        its going to take a while for “value” to have some real meaning on most of these… unless they are the 1:100 books.. haha

        • rich

          I don’t know…with less than 20K copies in total being sold every issue this doesn’t flood the market with all that many copies. Anything that makes a cover more rare than a regular (like 1:4 ratio) makes it immediately harder to find after release.

  7. Osuna

    “*2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio”… I hate that

    • rich

      Hi, tell me more about what you dislike about the 1:1 ratio of A & B covers. Do you just hate that there are 2 versions of the regular cover?

      • Osuna

        Yes, I buy my comics from a store that is on another city, so I’m never sure I’ll get the cover I want, I hate when publishers decide to do 1:1 ratio covers. I know it’s not a big deal, but hey comics cost me money and when I buy something I want to be happy about it.
