Kevin Eastman at Baltimore Comic-Con

Kevin Eastman is responsible for creating the characters that ended up in the cartoon show I was obsessed with as a kid. I spent every dollar I could find on the toys. I saw all three of the 1990s movies. Later, as an adult, I learned it had been a comic book that was set up as a parody of Daredevil and other comic tropes. So it was a no-brainer that I had to attend this spotlight panel.

In this video we learn the origins of The Turtles, how it spiraled out into the multiple franchises it is today, and what else Mr Eastman is doing in the comic cook world.

Eric was an avid comic reader in the late 1990s. He then took a hiatus from comic reading until 2011 when he dove head-first back into comics. Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
