About the Author

Born in Portland, Maine in 1962 Kevin Eastman began drawing at a very young age copying children's books and reading comics. Inspired by master storyteller Jack Kirby, and later by self publishing creators Richard Corben, Vaughn Bode, and Dave Sim, all of his early work focused more on Science Fiction influences than traditional Superhero style comics. In 1982, while trying to sell some of his illustrations to local fanzines, he met Peter Laird in Northampton, Massachusetts and the partnership studio; Mirage Studios was formed. Less than a year later in the middle of a late night drawing session, Eastman doodled a new character he dubbed a oNinja Turtleo to make Laird laugh-several sillier sketches and a final drawing of four characters later oEastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtleso had officially entered the universe!Self published in May of 1984 the first issue sold out of its 3000 copies overnight and quickly became a fan favorite. Catching the eye of Merchandising Agents and Hollywood Producers, Eastman and Laird maintained full control of their creations while guiding them through Toy Licensing, TV Series adaptation, as well as Feature Film exploitation, and by 1989 the TMNT's were number one in all three categories.Thanks to oTHE BEST FANS ON THE ENTIRE PLANET!o according to Eastman, after 32 amazing years the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles STILL continue to find their way into the hearts and imaginations of kids, large and small.aCurrently under an exclusive creator contract with IDW Publishing and IDW Entertainment, when not having way too much fun drawing the TMNT's, he also launched three new series in 2015/16- Fistful of Blood, Lost Angeles, and Underwhere.Kevin Eastman resides in San Diego with wife, Courtney (aka First Lady of the Turtles), son Shan
