July 1st, 2014 by Marc Comments

Today, IDW Limited announced it will mark the 30th Anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a special 320-copy, limited-edition set of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary Special containing an exclusive variant cover comic and hand-drawn sketch card.

The 30th Anniversary Special celebrates the anniversary of TMNT with a spectacular anthology of short stories from a dream team of writers and artists from the IDW, Mirage, Image, and Archie TMNT eras, led by the legendary, Kevin Eastman.

“When we started this thing 30 years ago, we had no clue where it would go,” said Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator, Kevin Eastman. “It’s amazing to look back and see all the talented people that joined Pete (Laird) and I along the way and contributed to the Turtles in their own unique way. I hope the fans have loved reading all of these stories as much as we’ve loved bringing them to the world.

Available online now, each $75 collector’s pack will feature the IDW Limited virgin variant cover of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary Special and a hand-drawn 2.5″ x 3.5″ sketch card from a pool of classic Turtles artists and current sketch card kings, including Kevin Eastman, Dan Berger, Jim Lawson, and Danny Kuang!


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
