From Jim-

Pictured here is a double-page spread from the Return to New York TMNT trilogy. Back in the old days (1989) this art was done on Duo-Shade paper and pencilled by me and inked/toned by Kevin Eastman. It pictures the final decapitation of the (Worm)Shredder by Leonardo.

My mom has the actual original and recently allowed me to take that art and get it reproduced and made into a very limited print run of 20 pieces. These special prints are full color and done with archival ink and paper (giclee) and measure 17 x 22 inches. The actual image size is 15 x 19.75 so there is a little bit of white border around the art.
This is not a scan. This is a high resolution image capture done professionally by Pivot Media in Florence, MA. The result is a beautiful, faithful tribute to the original comic page(s). There are and only ever will be, 20 of these prints in existence and 19 still are available. All are signed and numbered by me. Just to be clear, Kevin has not signed this.

For anyone interested, I'm offering this print for $100.00 apiece plus $8.00 S+H domestic or $20.00 S+H international. The prints will be rolled and sent out in cardboard mailing tubes. Email me at james.lawson31@aim.com.

Thanks!

One of the greatest pieces of TMNT art ever made, if not the greatest. Iconic, historical, series defining, & the best possible glimpse one can get at the real TMNT.

Buy buy buy!

So tempting but after the $120 print/ship to Canada ($155+) its too much for me. The poor CAN dollar doesn't do me any good. I can't recall if Kevin sells something like this at shows? I remember seeing a square shaped print (smaller than his other prints) of Rapheal in lying in sewers (cover/panel art) from the first part of the story as a print from Kevin. Not in color either.

Holy hell, thanks for the heads up! Hopefully I snagged one in time.

It would be really cool if really high quality prints of original TMNT pieces would pop up more. I know Eastman sells a few prints of his paintings, but man, the quality just isn't there.

I saw that right after he posted and almost pulled the trigger... but just couldn't go through with the triple $ digits for what ultimately is just a print. A jumbo-sized perfect quality very rare print of one of my most favorite TMNT pieces of art ever, but it's still a print. Maybe the $300 I just dropped at Boston Comic Con last weekend had something to do with my hesitancy too. :P I envy the peeps who can afford it and hope to see some pics of it framed up on a dromers wall soon!

I just sold a few things over the weekend on eBay, and have US$ in my Paypal balance. So I won't be affected by the crummy exchange rate currently! Gonna see about this...!

That price point is about right for limited, really nice print runs. I pick up Mondo prints every now and then-- those get CRAZY expensive if you don't catch them early on.

I got in-- thanks again for the heads up, Powder! For those of you still on the edge, as of last night, Jim still had some spots open.

Anyone know if any left? I'm still contemplating. I did ask Jim on Facebook yesterday but got no response.

When Jim first posted this I didn't think I was going to pony up the $100. Then knew I would end up regretting that decision, so I'm in. :tgrin:

I emailed Jim and he said on both FaceBook and an email, he had 4, 3 and now 2 left. I sent him my paypal payment. I hope I wasn't too late. I was gonna regret it too if I don't go for it. Its such a pivotal moment in the main TMNT comics and to get it in a smaller than a poster sized scale, I should have room for it too. I'm hoping one day Kevin comes back to another comic convention in Calgary, Red Deer or Edmonton again and I can get him to sign it too one day.

I think I got one of the last ones. Jim emailed me saying it's been shipped yesterday. Yes!

It's pretty thick, no danger of it damaging easily.

I got mine on Tuesday. Its pretty nice. Jim even had another longer white sheet of paper wrapped with it in the tube. Kinda helps keep it in good shape and from smothering itself. Just like to hang or frame if I can one day. It too nice. Mine was #16/20.
