Kevin Eastman Bio

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 creator Richard Corben.

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 “Ninja Turtle” to make Laird laugh—several sillier sketches and a final drawing of four characters later “Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” 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 Films, and by 1990 the TMNT’s were number one in all three categories.

In between TMNT projects, Eastman launched a creator friendly publishing company, “Tundra Publishing” where projects like “The Crow” “From Hell” “Madman” and “Understanding Comics” first flourished, as well as purchased and published the world renowned “Heavy Metal Magazine” for more than twenty-five years.

In 2020 Kevin launched The Last Ronin. The epic tale quickly become the TMNT event of the year/decade, a critical success, and a New York Times Best Seller. The series continued with The Lost Years in 2023 and now in 2024 TMNT The Last Ronin II Re-Evolution launches.

When not having way too much fun drawing the TMNT’s, he will launch a new maxi series with Image Comics entitled, Drawing Blood as well as companion limited series the Radically Rearranged Ronin Ragdolls, with co-creator David Avallone, and artists Ben Bishop and Troy Little.

Thanks to “THE BEST FANS ON THE ENTIRE PLANET!” according to Eastman, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles continue to find their way into the hearts and imaginations of kids, large and small four decades later.

In 2024 Kevin, his wife Courtney and Team Eastman will be visiting several comic conventions and signings around the world, ensuring they are always accessible and reaching out to fans as we all Shellebrate 40 years of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
