Steve Murphy and Ryan Brown actually own him, so maybe use someone else.

from here.

I think a few friendly words of encouragement via letters to Mirage would go a long way

He's been harassed about this for years, he knows there's interest. Changes nothin'.

I think actual letters to him might go a long way. I could be way off.

I guess I'll see if I ever get around to it. Maybe it is. I dunno. I'm just skeptical, you know? I still like a lot of the classics - from the obvious ones to stuff like that time he teamed with Walt friggin Simonson for Robocop vs Terminator - But his modern day output really took the bloom off the rose for me.

But I suppose it could happen. Hell, I checked some of Mark Millars work from recent times after Nemesis made me nope out for five years or so and it seems he pulled back on the vile, disgusting nonsense that drove me off entirely. Huck is actually a pretty nice read and Jupiters Circle wasn't bad either, even if I had a few issues with the story of the latter, stemming mainly from the fact that it probably needed a bit more time given to a couple things. If he can do it, who knows.

if you're in the market for a good sleep aid? give Mark Millar's Reborn a try?
it's more potent than knock-out gas.

That bad, huh? I actually haven't even heard of that one. I'm kind of poking my head back into his work after Jupiters Legacy surprised me.

it's probably for the best that you hadn't heard of it.
i had such high hopes for it, but it just ended being very clichéd, predictable and just not very interesting.
even Greg Capullo's art couldn't save that dud of a story.
perhaps Mark Millar should just stick to what he knows, cheesy schlock.

I think the only way Peter Laird is going to finish Volume 4 if he feels inspired through direct contact with TMNT events like conventions or doing press interviews. That might work, writing letters not so much.

Ooooh, it's the one Greg Capullo stepped away from Batman to do. Right, I actually forgot about that. Like I said, up until a couple weeks ago I just wrote off anything Mark Millar did. So Capullo aside I just shrugged at the announcement and went about my day.

Peter Laird very much strikes me as the sort who wants to do something less and less the more he's bugged about it, or he perceives as being bugged. I know the feeling. So yeah, I expect it would be more like what you say, or enough time passes and he's just struck with the urge to return and finish what he's started. Given the fact that he's actually discussing the possibility now, the process might have already begun.

From the letters page and other comments he's made, a general "please, please make some more" will probably not do a whole lot.

However, if the letters pointed out specific plot points that interested you and why, or ways his writing has inspired you, or substantive things like that are things he seems to appreciate.

Really? I thought Mirage put a moratorium on over creators owning any characters that "first appear" in Mirage stories since TMNT Vol. 1.

Have there been any recent developments regarding an IDW reprint of the existing Volume 4 material?

Nope. It's not being collected anytime soon. I'm not sure why, they could skip Image for now and go ahead and collect Volume 4 but it seems they don't want to do that either yet.

I thought I remember Peter saying he had the rights to vol 4 and Nick didn't. He said he plans on doing a tpb.... someday.

Murph told me so. Mind you, the issue with Galactose came after Mirage went full-on work-for-hire, and the legal indicia mentioned that Murph and Brown owned the character. I guess since that was a crossover with Moo Mesa, the rights to certain characters were part of their own deaks.
