From November 30th until January 4th, Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman will be running five different shows in Metldown Comics' new gallery space at 7522 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. And exhibiting himself.
This will include a new art exhibit opening on New Comics Day, every Wednesday from 6pm to 10pm.
Basically, expect Kevin Eastman to spend a lot of his time there. Probably signing copies of every Turtle thing ever. And working in a recreation of his own studio… which will then be sold.
On the 18th and 19th, Eastman and Mark Bode will recreate the cover of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 on a mural in the back of the store.
On November 30th, they open the TMNT Exhibit with 90 pages of original Kevin Eastman TMNT layout art for the new IDW series , the original eighties TMNT artwork, and many items from Eastman's own collection, to launch the IDW Ultimate Collection Book One.
December 7th sees the Underwhere exhibit, with 50 original paintings for Underwhere adventure by Mark Martin and Kevin Eastman, with an exclusive copy of the graphic novel.
December 14th has the original art for Bisley and Eastman's new comic, as well as the TV development materials.
December 21st sees the two showing off work for a film optoion by Bisley and Eastman, with a collector's edition book released.
And then from December 29th, it's an exhibit to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Heavy Metal Magazine, with a massive amount of material on display.
So, if you're in the area, might be worth popping along sometime. And poking Mr Eastman, just to make sure he's still real.
