Ed Piskor's Red Room #3 Gets A TMNT Cover From Jim Rugg

Fantagraphics is revealing variant covers for Ed Piskor's Red Room #3. That Fantagraphics is even publishing anything with variant covers is a bizarre notion, let alone tiered variant covers, forcing retailers to order so many of the standard covers to get the special cover and driving prices of them up on eBay as a result. This from the people who bought you Eightball and Love And Rockets. And then made them tiered variants for Red Room as well. So there's a 1:5 variant cover by Takashi Okazaki, who is best known for writing and illustrating the manga series Afro Samurai.

There's also a 1:15 cover by Jim Rugg. Rugg is Piskor's partner in crime on the YouTube channel Cartoonist Kayfabe. And the variant cover is his homage to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, following his previous Eightball and Love And Rockets creations.

Piskor has his own 1:10 variant.

And then there's Piskor's own generic standard cover, which anyone can get. And will have to if they want the other two.

Now let's see them do the same trick with Noah Van Sciver's books and see if it still works.
