In 1984, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were sitting in a studio late at night when inspiration struck: what would happen if you equipped a lethargic turtle with the lightning-fast skills of a ninja? What resulted was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - the now famous crime fighting, nunchuck bearing, anthropomorphic mutant turtles named after Renaissance artists.

The comic was written and self-published by Eastman and Laird under “Mirage Studios,” which they formed using a tax refund and a loan from Eastman’s uncle. With that $1,200 loan, they printed 3,000 copies, kept their expectations low, and hoped to pay the loan back within a couple years. To their surprise, the first issue was a roaring success.

The comic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, is comic is considered a grail of the Copper Age, which spanned from 1970 to 1984. It is ranked the most valuable Copper Age comics by critics and publications alike. In addition, there have been six Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, grossing a total of $1.2 billion. Nickelodeon also announced the development of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, which will be released on Netflix.
