Anyone know whos autograph this is? - and is it authentic?

Bottom right - there's some type of autograph that I don't normally see on these posters.



Anyone know whos it is?

That looks like the John Hancock of Mirage Artist Mike Dooney.

It's Dooney of course.
Here's the complete artwork from the cover of the 1990 movie stickers album:

I'm not sure why the signature is on a different position in the picture posted.
(Fun fact: there's a Puma blues poster on the background)

I seem to remember that particular image of Dooney's was also available as a wall poster tie-in for the first live-action movie (another variation appeared as the cover image to the first issue of the Welsh Publishing TMNT magazine). That might explain why the signature is in a somewhat different place, although I'm assuming that is printed onto the poster rather than being his actual autograph.

it isnt the exact same as the poster you posted. phish has a poster that doesnt have all the writing and no film strip style on the edges, instead its made to look more like a legitimate photo, its on a fairly thick cardstock and has a golden chrome frame. I have the same one from my childhood

I think he means the position is different. In one of the pieces the signature is right below Raph’s said and the other it is much lower if you take a closer look.

I know, the point im making is theyre two different posters just using the same base photo, ie "they changed it between the two versions", thus the autograph is scooted
