IDW Limted — a new imprint from IDW Publishing — has launched with their first high-end publication for serious collectors: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Vol. 1, Change Is Constant.
The new division will focus on publishing collections from the IDW catalog, bundling the stories with original sketches, creator signatures on the covers, and prestige packaging meant to “enhance and expand existing books, providing beautiful reading and collecting experiences fans will be proud to display on their shelves” (IDW).
IDW Limited’s Director Jerry Bennington said, “We wanted to give fans a top-of-the-line creative experience with the books they love in a truly special format.” He added, “These rare editions will not only be special and limited in quantity, they’ll also include unique content found nowhere else. This may be the only way most fans could ever hope to own a signature, sketch or illustration from one of their favorite artists or creators.”
“This edition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Vol. 1: Change Is Constant is nothing short of spectacular,” said Kevin Eastman, co-creator of TMNT. “The Turtles have been presented in a variety of formats over the years, but this book is truly a prized collector’s item for Turtle fans.”
The collection comes in three limited-quantity editions — red, black and blue (sold out) — and more collections will follow this fall: Transformers, G.I. Joe, Alan Robert’s Crawl To Me and menton3’s Monocyte, among others.
TMNT: CHANGE IS CONSTANT DELUXE LIMITED EDITION (RED-$125.00/BLACK-$250.00/BLUE-$350.00; 192 pages; 9” x 12”; hardcover) is now available for pre-order.
