Treasures From The Archive -- Black and white scans of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES No.8 supplied by Peter Laird as part of our "reciprocal licensing agreement" which allowed him to reprint the story without consulting or compensating me as long as I was allowed to do the same. I'm willing to bet that nothing was said when he sold TMNT to Viacom. So it will be interesting if I ever DO reprint the story. My arrangement with IDW is that they cut me a cheque for $500 anytime they reprint the story in a TURTLES collection. It was all I could suggest based on the fact that that's what I do with Bob Burden whenever I reprint CEREBUS 104. Arbitrary but…weirdly…fair I think.
