I plan on going to Durham, NC on FCBD, May 6th to see Kevin Eastman a second time. Last time I got my copy of IDW's first issue with Michelangelo. The only trade I have is the four Turtles one shots. What could I get to have signed? Looking for opinions while I have two weeks to figure it out.

When I met him last year I had a JetPack RE #1 and a copy of TMNT #50 signed, but at the time I didn't own any Mirage books. If I did I would have had him sign #17 or #11 maybe.

I would get a NECA movie Raphael signed first. As far as comics go I would have him sign one of the early Mirage books (1-11).

I always go with #1's, his solo issues, & otherwise important specials.

I just picked up the Eastman variant of IDW's TMNT#50 off of Ebay for just $4. What do you all think of having that signed?

Do you only have IDW items? I could always sell you a Laird signed Mirage book and then you can have Eastman sign it too... lol.

I own the seven issues of Tales of TMNT and a print of the first 21 volume one issues of TMNT. As far as IDW is concerned, I absolutely love it and find Mirage hard to get into especially after The Shredder's final defeat.

Out of curiosity what do you have of Laird signed?

last time i saw Kevin Eastman i brought a bag of Tmnt Comics and Graphic Novels and paid the donation to have him sign them.

if you have the Deluxe HC 'Change is Constant', that'd be a good one!
also the HC collecting all of his IDW covers is a good choice.

I have some v1 books, and then 2 or 3 sketch covers with Lavigne and oen or two others sig/sketches on it...

Follow the link to my FB page or I can PM a partial list.

I'm gonna be there, too. I figured I'd just pick my favorite IDW cover of his. The only Mirage stuff I have is ultimate collection volumes.

The Ultimate Collections make great items to get signed... plenty of space for lots of signatures!

It may be the most appropriate choice. I'm gonna go through my IDW covers, though. I generally opt for the Eastman covers when I pick up my comics on time.

What do you guys think? I got Eastman variant of IDW's TMNT #50 for $4. It arrived today in the mail. This is what I will get Kevin Eastman to sign this time. Thanks to all of you for the suggestions.

You get a choice? I take where is in my box. Sometimes its standard. Some times its the Eastman variant. I don't have a consistent A or B cover set. I couldn't tell you which ones are the Eastman variants in my complete set through #68. I do have two copies of #1 and now #50 which were repurchased for the expressed reason of having Kevin sign his own variant of a notable issue.

I hope to see you there. I plan on going as close to opening as I can. I will be in this shirt if it helps point me out. I hope its better than the Heroes Con was in 2014. It took 4 hours and 5 minutes to meet him that one day appearance he made.

Nice shirt! Yeah, sorry we couldn't make a deal. I'm still looking...

Some shops, like my old one and my current one, I just told then I want all the covers they can get... took a little while for the old shop and the new shop is smaller and sometimes misses the RI covers even when he orders enough books, but I really can't afford to drain my savings just for multiple copies of the same book over and over for different covers.

Chrisdude, I did some digging and found the link below state a person has to purchase a pre-sale ticket. Do you read it like we have to go there before next Saturday to buy said ticket? $25 is okay, but I want to know if I can buy it when I get there. I will call after it opens tomorrow morning and let you know what I find out. It says obe can pay over the phone, but it doesn't say which method of payment.

You do have to purchase the ticket from the store. I was able to do credit card over the phone, and then swing by to pick up my ticket later. But that was Wednesday. They did tell me there were a total of 200 tickets. Hopefully you won't have an issue.

You get a choice? I take where is in my box. Sometimes its standard.I take what's in my bag unless I get there early enough that new issues are still out. There's no regularity in which day of the week I make it to the comic shop.

I got the Eastman variant of IDW's TMNT #50 and the free comic book day offer. I got a few pictures that I will post later. I only had time to ask Kevin 2 things of a whole list. First I ask why CKD ask me to for us all, I asked him about the TMNT Universe co-writer contest. He loved the idea and said he would jot it down in his memory and bring it to Bobby at their next meeting(or if he checks this thread). There is also hom forgetting the brief conversation as I was one 201 people going through the lind. I also asked who would he like to team the Turtles with of all of fiction out there ignoring copyright hurdles. He said Superman to fight Jack 'King' Kirby's Darkseid.

I stood in line for about 40 minutes. Its better than the just over 4 hours at Heroes Con. I got the previously posted Ninja Turtles#50 Eastman variant and the complementary Eastman variant of the FCBD TMNT: Dimension X autographed. It was really windy and there was a band under a separate tent that was mostly noise to me. It was probably 1,000 people lined up for the free offeri gs along with cosplay characters of Casey Jones, MMPR Red Ranger, Goku, and elementary school aged brothers dressed as The Riddler and The Joker (Ledger version).

I noticed something after I got hime when I saw the receipt,the copy of Batman#204 that I purchased to fill in one of my last holes in Silver/Bronze run. The price tag had $29 on it, but the '9' was almost faded completely and I was charged only $2. I didn't catch it because I paid on credit card and suspect it was a FCBD only employee that rang me up.

I go to that Ultimate Comics usually 3 times a year when I am passing through the area and its great being just off the highway.

Congrats on being near to completing the Batman run your after. Also on getting the sigs. Sounds like an overall fun/successful trip. :tgrin:

Chrisdude, how was your trip? Do you ever go to Ultimate Comics? I do two to three times a year when passing through.

Congrats on being near to completing the Batman run your after. Also on getting the sigs. Sounds like an overall fun/successful trip. :tgrin:

Yeah, I have been building the classic Batman run for years. For the longest time it was Batman#232(1st Ras' al Ghul) through Batman#359 (first Killer Croc/Jason Todd) until I was able to push it back to #199. It was a steal of a deal thanks to an employees ignorance. Another shop I go to Acme Comics in Greensboro has every single comic they have in inventory registered into a computer with the current price so a faded 9 would not have been a factor there. Its about the best deal I ever got by accident.

Yes,it was a good trip. I am amazed at the very long line of people out to get what I consider cheap comics that are easy to forget about. One occasion DC and/or Marvel can kickstart a company-wide event,but this year it was all about Kevin Eastman. I don't know how they snagged him!!!
