About the Author
Kevin Eastman - Born in 1962 in Portland, Maine, Kevin began drawing as soon as he was able to hold a crayon. His discovery of comic books gave meaning to his crazed doodling. When Kevin discovered and studied the work of Jack Kirby, Russ Heath, Richard Corben, Vaughn Bode and John Severin, he began to hone his craft. His first published work appeared in 1980, a year or so before he met Peter Laird. In May 1984, he and Laird published Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, creating the hit heroes in a half-shell. Eastman co-writes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for IDW and can sometimes be found at the San Diego Comic Art Gallery. Peter Laird is an American comic book writer and artist. He is best known for co-creating the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with writer and artist Kevin Eastman.

contained in this book are the first 7 issues of volume one of the original mirage run, also featuring the Raphael one-shot which comes between #3-4.
Even if you are not a TMNT fanatic, but rarther just a casual fan or maybe even sombody completely new to the club, this book is still amazing for sombody who wants to start from the very begining and witness the true roots of the TMNT.
The stories collected in this volume are of extremely high quality, particularly the first three, which in my opinion are all individual master pieces. The first shows the origins of the Turtles(which is much darker than may be remembered in other versions) and shows them battle their most famos foe 'the shredder' which had a surprising outcome for those who are completely unaware of these stories, considering his major profile as a villain in other TMNT media. The second features first appearances for April O'neil, Baxter Stockman and the Mousers and the third featuring possibly the most detailed cat chase ever in a comic book. The one shot introduces Casey Jones and then the rest of the issues take the Turtles to outa-space where we learn the truth behind their origin story and meet some mysterious alien creatures.
All in all these original story's are quite amazing, featuring some amazing black and white art and story telling inspired by comic greats, maily the work of Jack Kirby who the creators looked up to.Read more ›
I am not remotely disappointed, absolutely fabulous artwork - simple but gritty stories and brilliant character development alongside end of comic annotations by Eastman and Laird reminiscing on their greatest creations.
Highly recommended to any turtles fans, from any era.
I've wish-listed volume 2 already.
Package arrived before estimated delivery date and was packed well.
Art work by Eastman and Laird is beautiful although the book is not in colour I spent ages looking at the detail of each panel and full page panels!!
Also at the end of each issue you get personal comments from the creator's themselves including where there ideas came from.
Order the second volume as cant get enough!!
