And isn't the reading the whole point of comics? How do you feel that in all the cartoons the Turtles have some type of truck they drive to get to places, like the Turtle Van, Battle Shell, the trucks they used in Next Mutation and the Nick cartoon, etc? I didn't mind that the Turtles were given some sort of vehicle to get around in, though I often thought the "party Van" in the first animated series was pretty goofy. Hey Mr.
I do very quick single Turtle head sketches for free. For more elaborate ones, I charge somewhere between twenty and forty dollars, depending on my mood, though I have been considering raising the price. I don't do full figure TMNT sketches, except in rare circumstances, and those almost never occur at signings -- more so for family and friends.

So you have previously described MWS as "shutting you and Kevin out early on". Why do you think they did that? You would have to ask those in charge at MWS at that time to possibly get the most accurate response to that question, but in my opinion it was mostly their desire to not have interference in what they wanted to do with the show.
They had an approach that they thought was the best one, and they wanted to do it that way. Was it the best way? Well, the show was very successful Or it could have been less successful. It's impossible to say at this point. I think there may have also been a certain amount of disdain on their part for Kevin and me, these two independent comics creators with their goofy little black and white self-published comic book. Who the heck were we to be offering ideas to people with actual experience in producing animation?
Again, this is just my opinion. Hi Peter, How are you? I have a doubt , what are the age of the TMNT in the original comics, the 2k3. Many people said that Leo is the oldest and Mikey the youngest or they are same age? How they learnt to drive? Where did you get the name Casey for Raph's best friend? It 's not a common name and it actually can be a unisex name. Girls have that name, too. Which I found weird, because I associate Casey as a guy name only. How Donnie developed his gifted intelligence Leo's answer to April about Donnie's job was a kind of a "slap in the face" for all the IT people.
But many of them took it with humor. That job is really horrible. Poor Donnie! What brand is Raph motorcycle in the movie? That's all. Take care! Let's just say they were teenagers in the first volume, but in their twenties or early thirties in Volume 4. To be honest, it isn't something that matters too much to me in terms of storytelling. I don't think it was me.
Dear Peter laird, You probably hear this all the time. But thanks for creating the TMNT you were a big inspiration on me. I just wanted to return the favor so to speak. I had a couple of friends read it they liked it. I spent a few days on it. I am not asking for any hand outs or whatever. That is the last thing anybody wants. I just wanted to say thanks by making the tmnt. If not its all good. Kevin already he saw it.. Anyway, thanks again. Hope you get a laugh or two out of it. I made it really simple for simpler audiences to read.
Sadly a lot of people now a days don't have large attention spans all multi-media driven. Anyway take care Thanks for the kind words, James. I did look at your "ninja turkeys" piece, thought the drawing style was charming, and in fact got several laughs out of it, though I found some of the misspellings distracting. Thanks for the link! Peter you made my day.
Thanks very much. By the way I went back and removed the misspellings. Also, I added some grey "screen print" to the artwork so it helped the atmosphere. I am handing out a few issues for free comic book day. By the way I made a second issue that is almost done. If you want check it out again. If not I understand. Your a busy man.
Thanks again for making my day. Means a lot. James Lichtenberg. Second, throughout each of the 3 main runs of TMNT--late 80s, 2K3, and now--there has been a glut of merchandise, some truly bizarre and some absolutely fantastic. Thanks for your time, and one more, know that I appreciate all of your work through the years. Adam, thank you for the kind words. There have been some less-than-stellar TMNT products over the years, but to be honest, none at least right now jump out at me as especially terrible. But on the "especially brilliant" side, I have to say the NECA figures were really great -- it was such fun to see the original comic book TMNT look reproduced in three dimensional form, and in really well-sculpted and beautifully-articulated action figures.
For example, the Mirage site would be used to read stories by creators online, and only 10, will be printed for the collectors depending on the popularity of the story. Exactly how you did with issue I would imagine there would be a selection process for quality control, that way people would want to come back to read new stories. I'm by no stretch of the imagination a business man, so I may be very naive in asking you that question. I just think something like that is very fitting for a studio with the name "Mirage". It would also be a great avenue for creators like myself to get their stories seen, and possibly find other creators to collaborate with.
Thanks for your time Peter. Hope all is well, and keep enjoying life! That doesn't mean someone shouldn't try it, though I don't think Mirage Studios will. Also, we did not print 10, copies of issue 32 -- we printed copies. Hey Peter, Yeah, you definitely got a point there. Thanks for the reply! So it seems that Hun became the break-out character of the 4Kids series, seeing how he appears to be the one character from that series everyone is using now.
Why do you think he got so popular? Laird , I got in contact with Dan and sent in my autograph request. It was actually delivered on April 22nd to the Mirage Studios. I was just wondering when you're going to be back in Northampton to sign my item. I might be able to shed some light.
I met Steve Barron a few years ago and asked the same question. He said he didn't like that the studio wanted to go with a lighter tone or something like that. In short, creative differences. PL Is there anywhere you post signings or do you post them with a few months notice? It's on my bucket list to meet you and get a few books signed but I need to make sure its economical with work and school and family.
James, I don't do a lot of appearances, although I have been signing at Steve Lavigne's "Shellback Artworks" store in Wells, Maine once or twice a year for the last couple of years. Typically, I try to post an advance notice about any such signings here on this blog. Hi Mr. Laird, Forgive me if you've answered this question before.
Is there a comic book that if given the opportunity you would consider a dream project, if that's even a possibility considering the success you had with your own creation? I asked Kevin about this, he said he was exclusive with IDW now, so the answer was pretty much no. But, I was wondering if you would like to make an issue of the "Third Aged Mutant Ninja Turkeys" or take control of the property to create a new series with me.
It would really be cool to see one of the creators of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" parody their own creation. Of course I am really "a no name" so coming from me is a bit strange. But as they say no question is a dumb question. Even through its a bit strange.
Anyway thanks for your time. If no. Its all good. I'm late to the game thinking that once you sold TMNT there were no more comics, but am so excited that I was wrong. I see the last two are posted here and I found 29 at the Mirage site. I was wondering though, since I could not find them, where if they are online, are earlier issues posted?
I don't see a good chunk of them even available to order through Mirage. Hi Peter! I was wondering if I have a piece of TMNT memorbilia and I would like to somehow get it signed, is that even possible? Would I send it to you? Do you charge money? I grew up with the TV show and the comics and I just thought it would be really cool : jamieboe gmail.
As a less intense question, perhaps, you said previously that Don's favorite sci-fi movie would be The Day the Earth Stood Still. Would would be the overall favorite movie or genre of each of the turtles? Donny Osmond has been saying that you and Kevin named Donatello after him. Is there any truth to his statement? The idea that we named Donatello after Donny Osmond is ridiculous.
Not sure if you're going to see this post, but is your lack of blog activity in the last couple of months a sign you're getting bored with this blog? I remember you used to have a new post just about every other day either about what you were doing in life or something TMNT related, and now both blogs barely have any new activity. Just merely out of curiosity, have you grown uninterested in blogging online? I'm not really disinterested in blogging, per se, but at least with this TMNT blog, given that I am no longer involved on a day-to-day basis with the Turtles, I don't have much to say about them.
Just wondering? Why four turtles? Did you and Kevin have plans for less or more? Also was there an alternative to Master Splinter being a rat? Maybe a squirrel, snake, or alligator? In large part, it may very well have been that when Kevin penciled that first group shot of the "Ninja Turtles", to which I added my inks and the two words "Teenage Mutant" to the title, he employed four Turtles, possibly because it made for a good composition Four Turtles always seemed to me to be a good, solid team number to me -- like the Fantastic Four, you know?
As far as I can recall, Splinter was always going to be a rat. That is really cool Peter how you guys hammered out the turtles. I have always loved how things come into being and are formed by creating. In your case and Kevin's how one thing Like Daredevil, satire and turtles all formed a new creation.

It lives up to its name "Mutant Turtles" It Evolved. Its a kind of magic! I believe its that same kind of magic that helped the franchise sell in the first place. What I understand you guys didn't think you would sell a single issue. That makes me a laugh. It was a kind of magic! Yeah your right Four is a solid number for a team.
Seems to work with a lot of stuff like you said with the Fantastic Four. As for Splinter you are right He was always a Rat. I also wanted to say also how the TMNT reminds me a lot of those old Chinese stories about people shown as animals. I think they were political satires they would show leaders as animals and stuff so they wouldn't get in trouble. Its the whole animal Anthropomorphic thing I guess. Its like the soul of the old Chinese stories transformed its soul to your creation Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles.
I hope that made sense. Anyway thanks for the reply. James L. Mr Laird. I've recently picked up an early tmnt group shot you pencilled and Kevin inked done in You have it listed as your blast from the past 85 titled, 'Tmnt fight a robot'.

This damsel, young and daily growing more beautiful, had the roving eye of youth and the curiosity of her sex.
But she had no immediate companiona of her kind, preferring the free- dom of her absolute independence, and loving most her two dogs— animals that reciprocated her affection and were unhappy when not at her heels. When, as it sometimes happened, her mother questioned the wiadom of the damsel's going about alone, the damsel replied that when she went riding she needed no company and that when she walked her dogs were her protectors. It happened that the damsel walked much, and one day, when she met an impressive man who was struck by her beauty and youth, she rebuked his admiring glance with a frown.
Her faithful dogs, noting her attitude toward the man, growled at him menacingly. Walking the next day in the same place, the damsel strangely met the man again, and when, despite the dogs, he looked at her more in admiration than before, she glanced aside with less distaste, and the dogs did not seem to know whether to growl or not.
On various succeeding days the damsel walked again and again, always meeting the admiring man, to whom at last, grateful for his admiration, she bowed, and with whom one day she talked, while he fed the dogs things which dogs like, brought in his pocket. This was a beginning. The young woman began to walk without her dogs, and finally, after an absence, returned home strangely unhappy. Rover," said ahe.
