TMNT 31/Cover

I hesitated to put up this post. The reason why is that Volume 4 is no longer being published on any sort of schedule and I really didn't want to open a can of worms with regards to when the book is going to appear or why it's not coming out regularly. But as I thought about it, I came to the conclusion that most people already know about the situation with the TMNT title, and either accept it or don't. I honestly don't have any information to give you or even insight to the forces that affect the publishing of the book. That Pete chooses to keep it alive, even in this stunted form- you gotta give him some credit for.
That being said, what I want this blog to be is a public forum for my work and I don't want to edit that.

This was pencilled last Friday.


  1. Awesome... So detailed work! It's look much better then cover for TMNT 30. Can't wait for color version ;)

  2. Love the Robin Hood reference, love to see how that figures into the Vol. 4 story! Do you think you'll complete it even with the uncertain schedule of the book?

  3. -->> ..i'm biased ..but dammit, J ..

    your pencils have such confidence and power.

    Especially here.

    Vaughn told me he preferred the pencil version of the Casey / Guzzi pin-up to the inked version for the strength of the pencils on that piece.

    I love the ink version very much, your pens match the pencil energy so much ..

    but he does have a point tho'.

    Jesus MOTHER EFFIN' Christ !!


  4. what form exactly is peter keeping this alive?

    and where is cover 30?

  5. on an unrelated note...anyone see the back to the sewers figures out in stores yet? they wont hit canada ever, but im just wondering so i have an idea on when to head to buffalo to look for them

  6. The interior pages of TMNT 31 were pencilled by me earlier this year, sometime around June, and to my knowledge, Eric is nearly done with the inks as of this writing. As for the actual publishing of the book, I believe Pete has made it known that the comic will appear on a schedule of his own choosing.

  7. ok...and so where is the cover for book 30?

  8. It was the one with the Hammerhead shark on it Armaggon.

  9. "Actually this a buck and a quarter quarterstaff, but I'm not telling him that!"

    Interesting cover indeed, guess we'll see when the next issue hits...

  10. where did u see comic 30 tristan?


    There's the link ArmaggoN

  12. That is great. I really look forward to the rest of the TMNT story.
