Publication date: June 2022 (Canada)


Publisher: Aardvark-Vanaheim

Curator: Dave Sim


Contents:


Pieces of Turtles 8 is a miniseries chronicling the creation of TMNT (Vol. 1) #8. Included are photos, sketches, anecdotes, and other behind-the-scenes content from the memory of Dave Sim.


Turtle Tips:


*This issue was preceded by Pieces of Turtles 8 #1. Currently, it is uncertain if there will be more issues in this series, though the Pieces of Turtles 8 miniseries is intended to lead into Dave Sim's remastered edition of TMNT #8.


*The Swordfish/Canada edition of this issue has a print run of 227 copies. As of this posting, a USA edition has not been offered on Kickstarter, though one is planned.


Review:


Another fascinating dip into the memory pool regarding Dave Sim and his collaborations with Mirage. Of all the anecdotes, I was moved most by Sim's memory of a brief encounter with the late Julie Strain, Kevin Eastman's wife at one time.

And for collector's reference, here is the back of the Canadian/Swordfish version:



If Sim publishes a USA edition and I can get my hands on it, I'll update with a photo of that, as well.
