Eastman, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is enthusiastic
in his praise for Bonivert and this story in particular. "I flipped out
over Jeff's work the very first time I saw it in 'Star*Reach' and 'Atomic
Man!' I then met Jeff at the San Diego Comic-Con, when he showed me "Fun
Boys" which I HAD to publish through Tundra. I mentioned we were looking
for cool artists to do their take on the "Turtles" and thought he'd be perfect.
Fortunately for us he jumped on the chance. Unfortunately, during the time
he worked to produce his 'instant classic' TMNT story, Mirage stopped publishing..."
"Now, after far too long of a wait," Eastman continued, "Jeff Bonivert's totally original, graphically beautiful, stunningly rendered, and one of my personal favorite epic TMNT adventures can now see the light of day! I am thrilled as a creator and an artist to have Jeff as a peer, and I hope you can see all the beauty that I see in his work! Cowabunga!"
"This story has always been something very special to me," said Bonivert. "I've put so much into it, I'm excited to finally get it to an audience, especially as large and diverse as the e-audience is today."
"I've also long been a fan of J.B.'s very bent style," said Field. "He is a very under-appreciated talent in comics. Back in '91, when Tundra published Jeff's mini-classic, 'Fun Boys Spring Special', we sold more than 200 copies at Flying Colors. 'Muscle and Faith' is done in that wonderful and totally singular style. There's sharp, funny dialogue, great characterization and elements in the story that will appeal to fans of both mainstream and alternative work. It's very much an all ages story. 'Muscle and Faith' has a lot of action, but even more heart."
