Hothead's extending neck was courtesy of Rattlor. Although Playmates wouldn't spring for the mechanism and simply had the child pull the neck out like Extendar.

I'd have to say my favorite issue of the Adventures title would be issue 22. That's because Gentleman Gene Colan drew it!
These pages are special because my characters Vid Vicious and Warrior Dragon are on them.

The script to Tales #50 has been approved and now work can begin on the art. The creative team behind Tales of the TMNT #36, Tristan Jones and Paul Harmon, will again kick ass only this time they'll be down under in Australia. I for one am very excited about this very special 50th issue!

Playmates Catwoman April design drawing from 1990.
My title at Mirage for a while was TMNT Toy Coordinator. My job was to keep track of all the design work being done for all the Playmates toys: making sure the process flowed smoothly between Playmates and Mirage; keeping track of all the different design stages items were in; getting written final approval for play sets, action figures, roleplay items, etc. from Pete and Kev; organizing samples, test shots, prototypes and paint masters. It was fun and hectic. I'd kill to have that sort of job again now!
For those of you who collect fanzines here's one from 1988. Jim and I are interviewed inside about Tales, Mirage's new comic day, our favorite artists and other assorted stuff. I like the cover. Bright, happy, sunny yellow! My copy is water-stained and old. Can't imagine many of these are still around today.

Great news! If you haven't heard by now, I'd like to bring to your attention that as of issue 43 Steve is coloring all the covers for Tales of the TMNT! Another Mirage alum joins the team! Even more reason to pick up a copy today!
Jim penciling, Eric inking, Steve coloring and Dan as editor. Wow, just like the old days! Mirage fans rejoice!
