FactCo-Creator of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with Peter Laird.


Kevin Eastman is an American comic book artist and writer, best known for co-creating the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Eastman was born in Portland, Maine, on May 30, 1962, the youngest of three children. His father, a doctor, encouraged all of his children to be creative. Eastman took up drawing at an early age, inspired by comics and movies such as Star Wars and Godzilla. He attended high school in Massachusetts, where he met Peter Laird, with whom he would later co-create the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

After graduation, Eastman and Laird moved to Northampton, Massachusetts, where they self-published their first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The comic was an instant success, and the duo soon found themselves in the midst of a media frenzy. The Turtles would go on to star in their own comic book series, cartoon show, movies, and toys.

Eastman has continued to work on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics over the years, as well as other projects such as the graphic novel The Last Resort. He currently resides in Northampton with his wife and two children.

Eastman’s net worth is estimated to be $30 million. He has earned his fortune through his work in comics and other media, as well as through his ownership of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Eastman has been married twice and has two children.
