Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley's "The Melting Pot"

Have any of you read it? I know that the Heavy Metal film sequel that Eastman was involved with was loosely based on it. Mainly I am curious about how it compares to the movie and other stuff like Bodycount.

I know from reading a preview of it that there's a character called Casey Jones, though I am not aware of any other TMNT connections.

that's funny you mention Melting pot!
i actually just came across my set of it yesterday!

it really reminded me of the world the Tmnt traveled to in Mirage Vol.1 issues 4-7.
i don't remember all too much of it other than absolutely loving the art! (the art is very loose btw. some people are sticklers for tight art.)
but i'll have to re-read it some time for a better analogy of the series though.
