The days of a single neat and tidy solicitation for all publishers are gone. Individual publishers’ listings will be posted on a monthly basis as I discover them, either from their websites or catalogues.
Kevin Eastman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Layouts Artist’s Edition
An Artist’s Edition featuring the groundbreaking origins of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series, by the legendary team of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. This is an art book, not a traditional collection of comic books, featuring rare and beautiful imagery, a collection for connoisseurs of the form.
This collection is a celebration of the earth-shaking art that landed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a place in comic book history. Included in this comprehensive Artist’s Edition are more than 300 layouts from Kevin Eastman’s earliest Mirage issues. See Michelangelo, Donatello, Rafael, and Leonardo as the artist originally imagined them, before moving on to the finished art. This is a rare opportunity to see the creative process and the earliest imaginings of one of the most popular franchises ever created!

The listing says Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Layouts by Kevin Eastman Artist’s Edition but the cover says Kevin Eastman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Layouts Artist’s Edition, which is the format IDW follows for Artist’s Editions, so I’m going with the cover.
This was solicited, removed, and solicited again. Hopefully this new October date sticks.
