CBG #542 & AMAZING HEROES #45 ARE THE ONLY 2 FANZINES/MAGAZINES THAT HAVE THIS 1ST EVER PRESS RELEASE/IMAGE FOR THE UPCOMING MAY 5,1984 TMNT #1!! CBG was the only weekly Fanzine & Amazing Heroes was the only Bi-weekly fanzine at the timethe rest were monthly/Bi monthly/quarterly, so they(CBG/AH) would always be the very first to receive the most current information before any other Comics fanzine regarding Press Releases and other Hot off the press information, turns out they were the “only” two Fanzines to have this Poster art ad TMNT #1 Press Release before TMNT #1(1st Print) & Gobbledygook #1 & #2 were released on May 5, 1984. I checked out all the other major comics fanzines between the Months of March & June of 1984 and not a one had this Poster Art ad TMNT #1 Press release, only CBG #542(APRIL 6,1984)& AH #45(APRIL 15,1984). I HAVE ALSO PICTURED CBG #542 & IDW 30TH TMNT ANNIVERSY COMIC BOOK(2014) WHICH SHOWS THE 1ST TMNT #1 PRESS RELEASE AD FOR COMPARISON. I ALSO HAVE AMAZING HEROES #45. CBG #542 IDW TMNT 30TH ANNIVERSERY PICTURED TOGETHER. IT TURNS OUT(WHILE RESEARCHING THE WEB)THAT GOBBLEDYGOOK #1 & #2 WERE ACTUALLY BOTH RELEASED ON THE SAME DAY AS TMNT #1(1ST PRINT) ON MAY 5,1984 AT THE PORTSMOUTH NH COMIC CON. & NOT WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF THE RELEASE OF TMNT #1 AS ALOT OF LONG TIME TMNT FANS HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE.
