I also recently acquired some pre-TMNT Eastman and Laird stuff! Really interesting although kinda risque at times. Some of the sensitive stuff is listed but not pictured.

Scat #2. I'm guessing this book is from around Halloween, 1979. It has a few-page story by Laird featured inside, plus a pretty cool Laird cover:


The Technician, 1981 book by Mike Kirby with Illustrations by Peter Laird. The story is 84 pages. Laird art is featured on the cover and 5 full-page illustrations on the interior:


Here are some 'zines, which are tiny few-page comics that are very cheaply made. They just seem like xerox copies stapled together, much like the original Gobbledygooks, except smaller. They measure about 4 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Spoilered for some risque content:

Spoiler:
Book of Man #1, '83. There's a neat 3-page Eastman comic inside featuring Kevin Eastman himself as the prophet East-Man.


Goodies #4, '83. Featuring a cool Eastman cover.
(nudity on cover, not pictured)

Goodies #5, '83. Featuring a hilarious 5-page Eastman story about the end of the world and a spontaneous encounter. "This is it! If we have to die,...let us go making...LOVE!"
(nudity on cover, not pictured)

Goodies #8, '83. Featuring a five-page Laird story about a woman's fantasy encounter with a Conan the Barbarian-type character. The cover has no relation to the interior content:


Goodies #9, '83. Includes a Laird drawing on the inside front cover of a nude woman.


Goodies #12, '84. Includes a funny 4-page Eastman story about a man who has an interesting "effect" on women just by touching them.
(nudity on cover, not pictured)

Sweet Cheeks #1, '83. Features a cool Eastman cover.


Upchuckle, '84. One page has an Eastman drawing of a woman doing dishes while <censored>.


Fandom Directory #8. February 1986. There are some neat Eastman and Laird drawings in here, but nothing like #6. Nothing full page, just a few drawings throughout the book. There are 7 total drawn by Eastman and/or Laird. I've posted them all here:


Sorry for the crudity of this composition but you get the picture. Top row: all Laird. Bottom row: Eastman/Laird, Eastman, Laird, Laird.


I hope you enjoyed this look at some obscure Eastman and Laird stuff. Next up: some new original art acquisitions.

very very cool adds. I know when you buy, you buy with purpose and you'll cherish them. I want to see them hanging on those bare walls of yours

haha. Hey man, I was freshly moved in when you were over last year. There are things on the wall now! I think some of this art would look great on the wall in my home office (that wall is still bare).

Yep! I notice a couple of others have now sold too.


:edit:

I recently was going through TMNT #43. I haven't read it in years. I had completely forgotten that A.C. Farley had done a signature and sketch on an inside page for me back in 1993! A cool surprise to find. If I remember right, AC didn't like signing covers unless it lent itself well to signature placement, like #48 and #49. At the time, for some reason I wanted everything signed on the cover. But now, I'm glad he signed it on the inside as the cover really is too busy for a signature:

A few new original art adds from Kevin Eastman Studios. Love that these were all drawn on duo shade paper.

A couple of #32 pages, 9 and 16. By Mark Bode, Kevin Eastman, and Eric Talbot.





An annual 2012 page. This page's art style, especially the first panel, reminds me of the original comics. All Kevin Eastman:

Just picked up this cool drawing by Jim Lawson.

8 1/2" x 12" Karai as Shredder.
Drawn on Duo-Shade paper (which I didn't realize until I received it. A pleasant surprise). There is no year on the drawing, but I'm guessing it was drawn around the time of City at War for a few reasons.

It's personalized to a Gavin. My old #61 City at War page was also personalized to a Gavin. I wonder if it's the same guy?

Thanks guys.

I made this cool shadow box display for my original button set. I saw something similar done a few years ago by a board member:

Now that's a sexy looking display! Haha. Grats on the shogun. Such a great figure, and now-a-days somewhat an investment. People seem to drop bank on em. Good luck with that eBay sale.

That's what I had planned to do if I ever picked up a set of pins. Very cool idea with the shadow box. I had thought it would be cool to have E&L sign the ad card or go nuts by printing the ad on some nice bristol and having Lavigne color it... Make it truly unique.

I like the idea of getting the ad signed. I printed it on a piece of regular flimsy paper but put a piece of cardboard behind it, which the buttons are stuck into. I had the thought to color it myself, but then I thought the buttons would grab more attention if they were the only thing in color. You should definitely do that if/when you pick up a set! I'll be interested to see the result.
