The Hero Initiative's "100 Project" is a cool recurring collaboration the charity undertakes with various publishers, where together they reach out to one hundred different artists to sketch exclusive sketch variants for milestone issues, with the goal of raising money for creators in need. The most recent "100 Project" was in conjunction with IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50 and now those covers are being collected into an exclusive art book featuring work from creators such as Stan Sakai, Bill Sienkiewicz and Walt Simonson, among many, many more.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 100 Project will only ever be printed once, and all proceeds raised by its publication will go towards The Hero Initiative which is the only charity dedicated to helping comic book creators in medical or financial need. Check out our preview of some of the sketch covers below, including covers by Gabriel Ba, Dan Brereton and a stunning Chris Burnham homage to TMNT's black-and-white roots.
