Awesome Turtle Picture #017


This is a montage spread for the "City at War" arc by Peter Laird:


Frankly, I'm not sure where this art came from; if it was ever published as a poster or what.  I'm... not even sure how I got the thing.  My "random TMNT image" folder is full of stuff that apparently substantiated out of thin air.

Regardless of origin, it's pretty sweet, isn't it?

EDIT: Aha!  Thank you, Google Image Upload And Search.  Peter Laird posted it on his blog some while back.  Apparently it was never used for anything.

EDIT AGAIN: Looks like it finally saw life as a variant cover for TMNT: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #1 by IDW publishing.

Actually it was used. It was the Dynamic Forces cover for Secret History of the Foot Clan #1.

A complete City at War graphic novel collection really is way past due!

@Anonymous,

Hey, didn't know that! I didn't go for all the variant IDW covers. Pretty cool they got some mileage out of such an old piece.

Wow, that's some really BAD inking on a great piece of pencils by Laird. Pity, isn't it?
