Not only does this book take original scans of the first TMNT comic ever pre-production, it does so in a manner that we have not seen by sectioning off the book in 4 parts or "issues:" 1) Leonardo: Layouts scanned from the original art 2) Michaelangelo Inks, photocopies scanned from Kevin Eastman's personal archives, 3)Donatello The Final Published Version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 with duo shade tones added, scanned from the original art and printed at actual size and 4)Raphael A sampling of some very early sketches, designs and promotional materials by Eastman and Laird.
This book does not simply take the first story ever and just rehash it. It takes it and as the cover indicates and presents itself truly as an artisan edition. Truly a piece to be appreciated by Turtle Fans and those who are curious to see some of the behind the story of the cartoons and movies that have become so popular today.Fine quality paper and the classic art represented beautifull on the cover, I only wish they had opted for red with cover as with the original instead of green.
(except Michael Bay, His movies suck).
