Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird

The mega-franchise has been kicking radical butt for 30 years, and it all started in 1984, when Kevin made a goofy sketch of the first Ninja Turtle. Inspired, the guys used the money from a tax refund and a loan from Kevin’s uncle to self-publish the first comic book. And the rest is Turtle history. Cowabunga, dudes!

How did Kevin and Peter meet?

Kevin found a discarded copy of a cartoon Peter drew

The first issue of the TMNT comic was something for fun, to scratch the itch we had for doing comics
