TMNT 30th Anniversary Celebration at Shellback Artworks



Just in time for the official 30th anniversary of the original TMNT comic book (first published on May 5, 1984!), Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird will be making a joint appearance at Shellback Artworks on May 4, 2014, just one day after Free Comic Book Day.

As part of this special event, Shellback Artworks will be selling an exclusive Eastman and Laird art print. This piece features pencils by Eastman, inks by Laird, and colors by Steve Lavigne. Peter recently previewed this artwork on his blog (below).

You will also be able to pickup the just-published TMNT Vol. 4, #32 at the event.

Also appearing will be Jim Lawson and Steve Lavigne, and maybe more surprise guests!

Details are on the poster above. If you need more information, you can contact Steve on the Shellback Artworks Facebook page.

Peter Laird Completes and Publishes TMNT Vol. 4, #32



Just in time for Free Comic Book Day, Peter Laird has competed and printed TMNT Vol. 4, #32. You can read the announcement on Peter's blog.

Details of how exactly the issue will be sold haven't yet been made available, but they are expected to be at the Jetpack Comics signing on May 3rd, and the Shellback Artworks signing on May 4th. Online sales should be available shortly after these events. Information will be posted as soon as it is available.

TMNT Vol. 4, #31 has been previously released online, but was never printed. Peter has now stated that the issue will likely be printed in the upcoming months.

New "Ninja Turtles" TV Spot Gives First Look at Splinter




IGN has released an exclusive look at a new TV spot for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. While this 30-second spot shows mostly the same footage we saw in the trailer released a couple weeks ago, there are some new shots, including a very brief glimpse at Splinter.


This new spot is also narrated by Splinter, who is telling the Turtles about the importance of family. A couple weeks ago it was announced that Tony Shalhoub had been cast as the voice of Splinter. Also announced was Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo.


In this second screen grab, it appears that Splinter, who is wielding a sword, is about to face off against Shredder.
