Free Comic Book Day – The People, the comics…. the hail?!

It has been a wild couple of weeks…

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.

Which I did. And here they are.


NT Volume 4, #31 can still be seen on this blog at the following URL: **

There is a very good chance that #31 will see a physical printing, but it probably won’t be for a few months. .. ..

I think the plan is for Shellback to have exclusive sales for a short time, then the remainder of the copies will go on sale via the ***Mirage website. — PL

FCBD: GGM at Jetpack Comics and Shellback Artworks


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. 🙂
