There's not really anything story-wise that causes the bandanas to get longer. It's more of an artistic choice.

In the first 4 issues, they are pretty short. They get progressively longer from 5 on. They are pretty long in issue #9, but that's a flashback story, further illustrating that there's no in-universe rhyme or reason to it.

Issue 12 was done by Laird and issue 14 was done by Eastman. In both, the bandanas were pretty long. It seems by this point they had both adopted the longer bandana as the new standard. Dooney did the first guest issue with 13 and he tends to draw them pretty long. From that point on, most artists from the Mirage run drew them with long bandanas.

Thanks in advance.
that comixology bundle deal last year was the only time i've ever seen them do a bundle since.

the single issues drop to $1.99 each after a month from release.
that might be a good option to get caught up?

Hi all. I will be meeting Stan Sakai this coming weekend in CT and wonder if anyone knows if he charges to sign things, or if there is a limit to how many items can be signed? I'm really looking forward to meeting him and I want to be prepared. Any info would be great.

A few years ago, Stan (and to be fair, quite a few of us fans close to him) got rather annoyed at people flipping his free sketches from cons. Stan won't charge to sign items, and he's usually fairly accommodating if you have a number of items in total, he may ask for a small donation to the charity pot on his table (usually the JANM or CBLDF) if you'd like a quick sketch or similar inside any of them.

Can I have the confirmation that the Mirage dimension in the TMNT Multiverse is "in-story" referred to as "Turtle Prime"?
Or is it just the way us fans call it.

Only in Turtles Forever, thus far.

Somebody refresh my memory, where did we leave things off with Hun? I can't remember.

In IDW or Mirage?

In IDW he last appeared in a Universe issue where Leatherhead meets Old Hob. Hun was running dog fighting shows for cash, and Leatherhead and Hob barge in and start a fight and Hun runs off.

In Mirage he last appeared in one of Tristan's Tales issues as part of the gang war and it was never resolved.

Non-TMNT Eastman comic question:

Could somebody please tell me the difference between the Summer 1999 FAKK 2 Special (https://shop.heavymetal.com/products...t=927452954652), the FAKK 2 Movie Artbook (https://shop.heavymetal.com/products...t=927453577244), and the FAKK 2 Art Deluxe Edition Artbook (https://shop.heavymetal.com/products...927453478940)?

That was the thing that always mystified me about the turn the franchise took when Eastman and Laird licensed the cartoon and the parallel comic book published by the same outfit that gave us Archie. The turtles' original origin story? The whole thing hinges on a for-Christ's-sake rape-murder!!!!
from here.
