Vids I Dig 315: Comic Tropes: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Co-Creator Kevin Eastman: How to Lose $14 Million In Indie Comics

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Kevin Eastman co-created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Peter Laird in 1984. They self-published the comic book and retained all the rights. This video shows how the business needs pulled Eastman away from being creative as well as how he got seriously involved with creator’s rights. Eastman has run Mirage Studios, Tundra Publishing and Heavy Metal Magazine. This has given him both massive success and allowed him to blow a fortune of around $14 million on independent comics. The video also takes a close look at his artistic techniques and his inspirations from Jack Kirby to Frank Miller.
