Issue #1 Cover Pose

Took this picture today, but forget to include the comic-con IDW/Playmates minicomic.



Am I forgetting any version of this? I know there's also the 2009 color reprint, but it's almost identical to the City at War cover.

Damn, I forgot about the Image TPB. Near impossible to find, and even then... say good bye to about 100 bucks.

If you're patient you can get it substantially cheaper - after buying one and getting it sketched by Frank Fosco late last year, a NM one popped up on mycomicshop for 10 bucks.

It's not a comic-book cover, but the Mirage Turtles also assume the poses at the end of Turtles Forever, which I think is the only instance of it in other media.

The 2009 color reprint has an entirely recolored version of the "City at War" cover. And, while I don't own it, doesn't the IDW "Color Classics" version feature a newly colored version of the #1 cover?

Also, using it in promotions for the Nick cartoon is totally rad. Really unexpected.

It's being used in the intro to the Nick series.

Best screenshot I could find.

It's been unofficially confirmed through Ninja Pizza through Tom Waltz that IDW will be doing a Nick Turtles tie-in comic.

However, that image is just a poster I ordered online that you could pick up at comic-con. Check ebay if you'd like one!

Ah, thanks for the info.

How many versions of the TMNT #1 rooftop cover pose are there?

TMNT Entity is currently on another review hiatus while I spend my time translating the next chapter of the TMNT III manga, so I usually just update with quickie "Awesome Turtle Pictures".

One of the ones I wanted to do, though, was a collection of every instance where the classic TMNT (Vol. 1) #1 rooftop cover pose was redone.

Can anyone tell me if I'm missing any:

TMNT Vol. 1 #1 first printing by Eastman and Laird
TMNT Vol. 1 #1 PBBZ Printing by Laird (may be black and white version of TMNT #50)
TMNT Vol. 1 #1 2009 Full Color Printing by Laird (may be recolor of TMNT #50)

TMNT Vol. 1 #16 interior page by Mark Martin (may just be tracing TMNT #1 cover)

TMNT Vol. 1 #50 by Laird

TMNT Vol. 3 TPB cover by Frank Fosco

TMNT Collected Movie Books cover by Imagi and Steve Jung

Turtles Forever scene where the Mirage TMNT first appear and after everyone leaves Turtle Prime

TMNT (IDW) #12 Cover A by Dan Duncan

Nick TMNT cartoon intro sequence


Any others? I'd like to include instances in the cartoons when the pose was struck, too. Besides the Mirage TMNT doing it in Turtles Forever, were there any other cartoon episodes that called back to that pose? Did the 4Kids or Nick TMNT ever do it in any episodes?

Both Mirage (2009) and IDW (2012) threw some color over the original art for their reprints, but other than that I think you covered them all.

EDIT: I guess Mirage just colorized the PBBZ reprint cover in '09.

There was a whole thread on this a while back, and there are definitely more. Off the top of my head, I know Frank Fosco did one do the Image TPB cover. Mark Torres and Ross Campbell each have one out there, but I don't think they were official covers. I think Dan Berger may have done an iteration too.

EDIT: Whoops, didn't see you has the Image cover listed already.

EDIT 2:

Couldn't find the Mark Torres one, but I could have sworn I saw it somewhere...

There's also the mural thingy at Meltdown Comics in LA done by Kevin Eastman and Mark Bode.

http://www.ninjapizza.net/2011/11/co...wn-comics.html

Edit: Just watched that video I linked to... Kevin Eastman comes across as a great guy in pretty much every interview i've seen/read. And i've always thought it pronounced Mark BOAD, not BODEE... Its like the Renet/Renee thing all over again for me!

The thread we had on this a few months back covered EVERYTHING. If someone can find that, we'd be in the clear.

At any rate, here's some recreations of the cover done by known TMNT artists.
In order it's Mark Torres, a Mirage Jam consisting of (from left to right) Lawson, Eastman, Dooney, Laird, & Berger on inks, Dan Berger, James Silvani (designed a crap-ton of merch over the years including t-shirts, lunchboxes, etc.), & Jim Lawson.

Thanks Powder and Discordia. Didn't know we had a thread a few months back; totally missed it.

I'll add all those to the pile!
