Kevin Brooks Eastman (b. 1962)

Kevin Eastman was born in Springvale, Maine on May 30, 1962.

In 1983, Eastman worked in a restaurant and was looking, for his comic stories, for underground publishers.  Eastman had collaborated with Peter Laird on various projects.  In May 1984, they self-published the first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) in black and white.  

Laird had experience in newspapers and created a press kit that was sent to 180 TV and radio stations.  Their publicity caused a demand for the comic that had taken everyone by surprise with its strange name.  The second issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had advance copies totaling five times the initial print  ...  Displaying 750 of 1940 characters.
