Thirty years ago, the world fell in love with four black and white anthropomorphic turtles. The popularity of those turtles has grown exponentially and crossed international borders, creeds, religions, and generations. Kevin Eastman drew those four turtles with no real intent of creating a multimillion dollar success.

From humble beginnings to a global success, from poverty to riches, from black and white to computer animated. Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo have run the gamut. The TMNTs have spawned five films, three animated TV series, thousands of action figures, even a pen and paper RPG. In the mid to late nineties, the turtles all but faded from view. In past few years, Michael Bay has put new life into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with one film complete, and a sequel on its way.

During Comicpalooza, we had the privilege on sitting down with Kevin Eastman at a round table Q&A. He walked in and personally made sure he shook everyone’s hand and got each of our names before sitting down. The video below is what followed.
