Free Comic Book Day not only was the annual comic giveaway across the country, but it was also the 30th anniversary for the teenage mutant ninja turtles. I was fortunate to be around for the special Eastman & Laird reunion and signing events for both Jetpack Comics in Rochester, NH and Shellback Artworks in Wells, ME.
I was heading out to do some grocery shopping this afternoon when I decided to do a quick check of email on my phone. I was not expecting it, but one of the messages was from the local printer who was handling the printing of TMNT #32. He said the books were all printed, and I could come and pick them up.
Well, this Saturday I’ll be roaming around both at JetPack Comics in Rochester, NH as well as Shellback Artworks in Wells, ME. 🙂
I’ll be around in a black shirt and red hair bandanna taking photos – if you see me, stop over and say hi!
For those that can’t be in the Northeast, I’ll be doing a write-up on the day, and review on the new TMNT Animated Adventures comic, and whatever else I can find… maybe a giveway, if I can beat the crowds. 🙂
“Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heavy Metal) is flying in for the event. This Eastman 88/69 print is one of the first 4 Limited Edition prints Petra Gallerie is proudly launching with. All of them limited to 88, as if you didn’t already know. Signings will run on and off until 1 am.”
**KEVIN EASTMAN @ JETPACK COMICS , FREE COMIC BOOK DAY – There’s a limited amount of FREEBIES at Kevin’s table. That’s right. The NH co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be the guest of honor for this years Rochester, NH Free Comic Book Day Festival. People are flying in from all over the country to meet this superstar. We expect the lines to be long so we are going to have to place limits on how many things you can get signed. If you have more than the limit please feel free to jump back in line and do it all over again. We just want to be fair to everyone that wants to visit Kevin. PLEASE NOTE: Sketches will not be available that day. Too many people and not enough time. Of course there will be a vendor table of great Eastman works that you can get signed at the event hall.
