I think we already had a thread about this, just not with a link to buy the sketchbook. If anyone is willing to fork over the money, I'd love to know what's actually in it.

I haven't read all the text yet, but I think Freddie described it on his Instagram account as a "more concise" account of the comic's failed history. It seems to me there is probably more text in the book than he wrote online, but it's hard to tell; I think 14 pages have some text with pictures.

I don't think there's a ton of art from the He-man crossover that Freddie didn't already post online, but there are a few new things. He includes a lot of miscellaneous TMNT and He-Man/She-Ra art pieces throughout the book, even if they might not have been directly related to the crossover plan. There are a surprisingly number of Batman and Batman/TMNT drawings included, even though the Batman/TMNT crossover got its own sketchbook too.

So far a I can tell, Freddie organized the drawings chronologically (to the best of his ability to recall) to illustrate the sort of things he was working on at particular points in the timeline of the He-Man/TMNT discussions.

There is color ink on most of the pages (as advertised), even though most of the art sketches are in the ink tones.

So, while I would have loved to see a ton of unseen sketches from the TMNT/He-Man crossover, I think the best stuff has already been shared online. That said, it's still great to have the whole set in one handsome paperback comparable in dimensions to an oversized modern comic book.

What's so special about Quebec to warrant exclusion?
