As a rule, I'm not doing sketches in copies of TMNT #32, but...

... I decided to bend the rule a bit this week.

Katie had left me almost a whole box of copies of TMNT #32 to autograph for fans who had ordered them online (thanks, everybody!), and I spent about half an hour signing the covers. I was just about to leave when I got the idea to do a sketch in the back of one of these copies, and just insert it randomly in the pile of comics, so someone -- I have no idea who -- might get a kick out of opening their mail-order copy of the book and finding this on the inside back cover...

  7. That is so cool. I got my issue #32 in the mail Saturday from Steve's shop. I couldn't be more pleased. I don't do a lot of floppy comic buying like I used to and just don't owning a lot of stuff. I generally do my reading digitally these days, but I make a huge exception for TMNT. This issue is one of my favorite things.

    I may just have to get another one from you, as I was planning on making an order for a few items that are missing from my collection anyway.

    I hope whoever is lucky enough to get this sketch is as thrilled as I would be flipping through and finding it there. I'd love to get to see the smile on their face when they see it.

    1. Neil, as far as I know, we still have copies of #32, so I don't think you are too late. Yet. -- PL

  9. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the sketch! I hadn't even known you were continuing Volume 4 until recently (I'd last checked in when you posted the scans for #31 a few years back). Glad you're doing them, though. Any word on how soon until you release the printed #31? -Jason

  12. How is it possible for a regular joe person to meet you? seems like its really hard, I been trying for years but never seem to be able to catch you or the events have passed? do you have an event schedule that I can see? I really would like to meet you maybe have some things signed... like others tmnt has influenced my life and now that I am older I would like to meet the two who made my child hood so memorable.. thank you in advance if you read this

    1. I don't go to many comic conventions these days, and only do the occasional store signing. Most of these have been -- at least in the last couple of years -- at Steve Lavigne's "Shellback Artworks" store in Wells, Maine. Generally, I post information about any upcoming appearances on this blog. -- PL

  13. I just received my two copies of #32 in the mail. I did not get the sketch but I'm still very pleased. Thanks for taking the time to sign Peter. I appreciate it.

  14. I ordered a couple of these so my friend could get a copy as well. Awesome stuff. I'm hoping one day to get them signed. I'll be patiently waiting to meet you again. I sadly missed the Wells, Maine stop this year. I did catch you at Jetpack the day before, but this issue hadn't been released yet :(

  18. IM so glad you published #32 thank you !! But I have a question - Mine were not autographed did i miss out on a time frame if so my loss. Also i received my copies 2 weeks ago and 2 of the issues were damaged most likely due to the USPS handlers so I'm glad you allowed us to order 3 as one copy made it. Thanks for every thing I owe you and the Mirage guys for giving me art as my outlet in life I've never stopped drawing the terrapins
