I love that drawing! Didn't it end up as a "pin-up" in one of the comics or books or something? Wasn't it colored?....

Yes, I believe it was colored somewhere...

You guys sure have better memories than us!

We forgot all about this being printed.

That is kewl. Which issue was this printed in??? I wanna see it in colour.

Funny to see the Alien there. And Thing's on top of the shelf next to a Triceratops. *lol*

This is a great drawing. I love all the little details and drawings of past TMNT covers. So fun. I can look at this all day long. Thanks for making it a larger file too. I'm gonna use it for my desktop. he he!

This pic was indeed printed in color, on the back cover of TMNT vol.1 n°15.

By the way, digging through my old issues, I stumbled upon the pin-up you did for the the 4th printing of TMNT vol.1 n°1. I believe you were the first one to ever put a katana in April's hands, way back in '85! Talk about foreshadowing...

Congrats jaf!
You're the first to notice that! Finally....after all these years!

I just thought it'd be natural for her...


Can you imagine my surprise when I first read the message from Pete and Kev in that issue's letters column?

Holy crap!
