Hey guys,

I had this given to me today and I honestly don't know anything about it
seems like John Beatty did the inking on it? I could be wrong but I cant read the person who sketched it and I don't know the history of it since it is numbered as a limited thing... anyone's help would be great...

No offense taken. Just figured maybe it'd get someone with a better eye.

I mean it does look like an A.C. Farley turtle but the signature doesn't look like his.

If John Beatty did the inking, maybe track him down and show this to him. He might be able to tell you who drew it. It's a really awesome piece. I really like the Farley style. Let us know what you find.

I emailed him he requested a picture so I sent it

So john Beatty got back to me, he is sure he inked and approves his work on it but doesn't remember who sketched it

Doesn't it say "Jam W/ Eastman" at the bottom? My guess it was a loose Eastman sketch initially, based on that & how he's the only turtle guy to give Mikey roped chucks instead of chain-linked ones. Though, Beatty would've taken a lot of creative license there given it pretty much looks like he aped Farley's style. The only shade of Kevin there, ropes aside, would be the pose.

I highly doubt Eastman would even respond to any info on the sketch.

It does look like a rip-off of Farley's style, combined with some of the less dramatic Image comic panels.

I messaged Eastman and Farley but I highly doubt they will respond

Especially Farley since I believe he is still in the hospital.

Farley just got back to me, he stated he only inks his own work and clarified its not his and feels some one imitated his work... I wished him a speedy recovery. Strike 2, I have tried contact Eastman in many different ways but no response, I guess I'll just keep digging
