Unless he has in IDW, then no, I don't think so. Though I'd be lying if Donatello out loud asking about that in TMNT II wasn't a partial inspiration in this.

"Much closer than we were but further than I'd prefer" is about accurate. Arseniy and his guys are shoring up the last coloring of the pages, of which there aren't many left. We're talking maybe 15 pages, maybe less.

I think maybe it'd be fair to release the Obligado story, publicly, as a measure of good faith given the wait. What do you folks think?

I'll allow it, but only because I want to say "obrigado por Obligado" after it happens.

Are we looking at late October now, realistically?

I just sent out E-mails to everyone that ordered artwork. This is who I have down:

1. Alika S.
2. Ryan M.
3. Courtney E.
4. Andrew H. (2 pages)
5. Andrey P. (3 pages)
6. Christopher L.
7. Bobby S.
8. Jason P.
9. Adam E.

Am I missing anybody? I know people have contacted me directly but I don't believe anyone actually did in regard to art. But I could be mistaken.

Also I posted an update on the Indiegogo in terms of who is to receive the "Special Thanks" perk, that anyone who I missed/has the wrong name/doesn't want their name there can contact me.

"TMNT: Origin" original art pages from Jim Lawson (also the back cover) are now available. Visit here:
https://tmnt-ninjaturtles.com/tmnt-o...ginal-artwork/

Just let Rich (keeper of all of the pages) know which pages you're interested in. His E-mail: rich@tmnt-ninjaturtles.com

NOTE: You will find that many key pages are missing from here (ordered and selected from during the campaign) but there are still major spoilers to be found. Do not look unless you are 100% OK spoiling yourself.

Yeah, same buddy

That's a good holdover though, even if a lot of context is lost without dialogue - and without other artist pages

Just took a look, though only at the early pages to avoid spoilers for myself. XD If I had the money, I would gladly buy page 24.

As promised, here is the Origin prologue/Obligado finisher, a little tale called "The Utrom Who Knew Too Much":

NOTE: Yes, there are a couple of very minor typographical errors, but all will be corrected in the final version.

I'm a little surprised the title doesn't follow in the "grape" themes of the original stories.

But with that. I have closure.

Spoiler:
I'm happy to see each action of Obligado finding the tablets, to Xeinos translating them, to Glurin harnessing that information. Kinda scratches my itch of a head canon that Xeinos is Obligado's daughter, and Glurin is her son.

Though, since he went to the past, it would have been more interesting to see Obligado at least looking a little younger.

Only the first three titles did that, the rest were grape free. In fact, they actually form trilogies of titles:

Tales Vol. 2 #4 – "The Grape"
Tales Vol. 2 #6 – "The Raisin"
Tales Vol. 2 #8 – "The Risen"

Tales Vol. 2 #10 – "The Question"
Tales Vol. 2 #14 – "First Mud"
Tales Vol. 2 #15 – "Apocalypse Vow"

Tales Vol. 2 #18 – "Altered Fates"
Tales Vol. 2 #25 – "The Doors of Deception"
This story - "The Utrom Who Knew Too Much"

Oh yeah, that's true...it must have slipped my mind.

Spoiler:
I do find it kind of interesting that he went through all of that in the Eye of God and still didn't get the memories of his birth (something he seemed to have been chasing for a long time, at least from my understanding) until he died the second time. Unless he just got bombarded with so many different versions at once that he wasn't sure which one was his memory until it was extracted.


And I can't believe I didn't think about it until now...

but...

Obligado.exe stopped working.

Woo! Jim Lawson did a bang up job on that; a real thrill to see him adapt something I wrote.

re; the titles, the Obligado serial had started using movie parody titles partway through, so I wanted to keep that theme going. Also worked in the parody angle a bit into the story-itself. The grape-related title theming actually only played a part in the prologue of that serial, but I wanted to reference that, too, hence the final line in the story. Hopefully, the whole Obligado serial can be read cyclically.

Thanks to Andrew for making it happen for me! And I hope everyone liked it or tolerated it. I've got two more shorts in Origin, one drawn by Mirage Hall of Famer Dan Berger, and one drawn by longtime fanartist Powder. Loved writing all of them.

So after giving the original Obligado run a re-read...

Spoiler:
I'm guessing the main story of Origin will go into what the heck was going on with covering up Magonia?

And how did Obligado not know who Nemoiku was after learning everything? (Speaking of that, I keep imagining him skulking past a bookshop displaying a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy special, hearing some people chatting about "42", and coldly mumbling "I know what 42 means...")

And somehow, I'm still bothered by Utroms having enough filament hair to attract a variety of flea. Even if I like that Utrom design a little better than Jim did them years ago. It's the legg.

Just took a brief read of the prologue comic. Well done!

Spoiler:
Yeah, story-wise, it reminds me of a line I heard from Monty Python, of all sources: "I don't like the sound of (knowing everything): it would take the mystery out of life." Curious what it is in particular that he knows and wishes he didn't.

Great contribution, man! Must be amazing for a TMNT Legend like Lawson to illustrate a story you wrote!
