Both Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird had a big dream of living from comics like their childhood heroes. Working on projects that never got off the ground, the duo came up with the unusual idea of a turtle with ninja abilities when Eastman drew one with nunchakus strapped to its paws only to annoy Laird, who in turn decided to create his own version.
The process went on until they came up with a crime-fighting quartet under the title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. With a modest print run of just over 3,000 copies, the comic became a success that grew by word-of-mouth from readers, generating the second run of 15,000 copies.
Even with the presence of many of its classic elements – such as the four heroes named after Renaissance artists, their master Splinter, and even the villainous Shredder – the first incarnation of the group was quite different from the fun-loving, funky gang that would win over children and adults alike in the future. The comics created by Eastman and Laird were more serious and aimed primarily at an adult audience.
