Kevin Eastman

Kevin Eastman

This week things get totally radical as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman joins the show. We take a deep dive into the beginnings of Mirage Studios, and what led Kevin and Peter Laird to come up with the insanely brilliant idea of the Ninja Turtles. We break down the duos first single-issue comic, and how they were able to bypass the restrictions of the Comic Code Authority. 

Kevin shares his thoughts on the many resurrections & reiterations of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even tells us which ones he likes the best (& the least!) We also find out about Kevin's involvement in Michael Bay's live-action TMNT film, and the advice he gave to the production team while filming.

It wouldn't be a true Drinks With Johnny chat if we didn't get into music, so of course we talk about the iconic theme song that's carried on throughout the years in the Ninja Turtle universe; I also ask Kevin about some of his favorite musicians. We get into The Last Ronin, Drawing Blood, and even find out Kevin's favorite alcoholic drink of choice. Prepare yourself for a totally tubular episode as we get into the mind of a man who's helped shape my childhood, and many others' as well.... okay fine, we'll say it.... COWABUNGA!
