Very cool!! Was it your decision to put them in the latest animated series? They made for some great episodes.
Super cool! I always loved that issue! I love seeing development art like this!I was a teenager when I first saw the cover of #15 in a book (I think it was "The TMNT Treasury"). I thought it was so cool, the way the art was "distressed" to look like an old cover. I hunted that issue down for months and finally found it in a comic shop (that has since closed).It was hermetically sealed in a Mylar bag which the shop owners urged me to leave sealed. Dad helped me cut the bag open (he was a comic collector himself so he wanted to be sure I didn't screw it up) and I read it twice, then put it away. I think I read it one more time while I was still in high school, and then put it in one of my longboxes.I sold most of my other comics when I was in college, but not the black-and-white Volume 1 TMNTs. I could never part with those comics. The sound of the Scotch tape coming off the mylar bags and the smell of the newsprint takes me back to summers in high school, bumming around the house, reading comics and dreaming of big things. Good times.
Where the charactes of the JSA your inspiration for Justice Force or just the basic idea of an older generation of heroes with newer ones?

awesome drawing peter
-->> Are we looking at a 1986 date here ?!
-->> Hm, no this has gotta be at least 87 - i would say 1988 .. but i am unsure of the turn over at that time so. Things were planned pretty early sometimes. So i can't calculate an exact date.
-->> Then again .. once AGAIN ; i may be frivolously over-thinking the whole thing.
