Kevin Eastman Appearing at Dragon*Con 2012



At this point you're either going to Dragon*Con or you're not, but if you are (or you need something to do this weekend) you'll want to hunt down Kevin Eastman, who will be attending as a guest.

Dragon*Con takes place August 31-September 3 in Atlanta, GA. No specific information about where Kevin will be located or what programming he'll be participating in is available (or it is and I just didn't find it).

Complete Original TMNT Cartoon Series on DVD November 13




Season 10 just came out a couple weeks ago, but if you've been slacking on picking up Lionsgate's releases of the original TMNT cartoon series, you'll probably be interested in the special complete series package planned for November 13, pictured above.

As announced on TV Shows on DVD, the 23-DVD set comes with a plastic Turtle Van storage case. It is priced at a quite reasonable $99.99, although it'll probably be available for less through discount retailers.


The pictured box states that there are over 3 hours of bonus features, however, at the moment no information is available on whether the content of the discs is identical to what has already been included on the existing releases, or if new content is planned.

Eastman & Sim Art Print Revealed




Back in June, there was a Kickstarter campaign to support the creation of a digital edition of the Cerebus comic book series by Dave Sim. One of the rewards that was available was an art print of a jam piece between Kevin Eastman and Sim. Sim started the piece, portraying Cerebus as "Matisse, the Unknown Turtle." He then sent it off to Eastman to finish it. Just yesterday, the final piece was revealed as the one pictured above, and as you can see it's AMAZING!
