And for their co-creator, Kevin Eastman, its been a long, strange, and wonderful trip indeed. Drawing upon his long history in the comics biz, and his own personal experiences shepherding the TMNT from cult indie sensation to household names, Kevin has launched his own publishing company, Kevin Eastman Studios, to tell his story… sort of…
