The Sewer Lair - Turtle Talk - TMNT1029

Collector ZosoRocks private msg quote post Address this user
You are right - as I have found some within a mile of my house in ABQ. And it isn't a LCS.

I'mm in the square all the time, so I think I may have to step in and check it out again. Have't been in there in a few years.

Hmmmm....good thinking......

BTW - I'm slowly changing my look on the TMNT to how they are drawn. I think KE has something going on....similar to Jae Lee, Splatt, and others.

Add in the colors.....can't say the bestest....but hey....I'm not complaining for 75 cents!!

Cool book nonetheless. Do you have them? They are exclusives and I don't think they went into a reprint. Does CGC grade them, or are they too large for their scale too?

Thanks!

..on a similar note....the local Hastings Bookstore went out of business or just closed down, and went into like 80% or higher off. They started at about 40%-60%, and I bought some variants and exclusives before they sold out of the higheer priced keys, but I did manage to find some TNMT in the scavenging for low dollar.

Batman/TMNT 1 thru 3 I think, even a variant Eastman cover....but that is my extent of these guys.

I have always looked for erly comics, but sheez....those are very difficult to find in the wild. One really has to be lucky for that stuff....*smiles*.....

Give me some time and I will....LOL......

I was going through my boxes a few weeks ago and found this. I guess it’s from around 1989 or so. Forgot I had it.

Very cool. Definitely from the early days, because the turtles' bandannas are the same color. πŸ‘πŸΌ

check mine out:







You might wonder and ask KaptainMyke, "But why, KaptainMyke, just why did you get Steve to sign an original Turtle Force Fan Club Kit signed by the co-creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman?!" My answer is a simple one: "Kevin Eastman has publicly stated that Steve Lavigne is the basis for the character of Michaelangelo". Steve Lavigne along with Ryan Brown illustrated the majority of officially licensed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Merchandise. I also do not own any sketches or autographs from Steve Lavigne so this was my shot at one if there ever was a chance.

Nice! Were the blue bandannas just for the early members?

1989 TMNT Turtle Force Fan Club Members Exclusive "Power Patch" full set of all 4 turtles, the logo, and splinter from Peter Laird. His signature is getting lazier.

These patches are pretty hard to come by as a set and this was from Peter directly.

How about 47 copies of the Raphael one-shot?

The guy has other TMNT lots for sale, but so far, nothing this massive.

I got this for my grandson- from the 2015 Sacramento Wizard World con. I couldn't tell you who drew it- I seem to recall him not being one of the names inside the book, but I could be wrong. His sig is hard to see at the bottom right.

Today he's into Dragon Ball Z (shrug x 100!)
