In my ongoing photo-scanning project, I ran across this snapshot from years ago -- I think it's from 1985. What you see here, sitting on the couch in our house in Sharon, CT, are two very cool TMNT artifacts -- a large, handmade Turtle puppet crafted by Tony Basilicato, creator and penciller of "Prime Slime Tales", a comic which Mirage published at one point; and the painting by Richard Corben for the reprint of TMNT Volume 1 #2.
I remember that Kevin was ecstatic that he had been able to get Richard Corben, one of his top artist heroes, to do something for the TMNT comics. It really is a beautiful painting. -- PL
