About a week ago a group of us from the Center for Cartoon Studies had the chance to visit Mirage Studios in Northampton, MA, home of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. Peter was a gracious host, answering our questions and telling us stories before giving us great toys! We also got to tour Jim Lawson’s studio, who has been penciling and inking the Turtle comics since they began. We all had a fabulous time. He also posted an image of the mini comic I gave him on his blog– thanks Peter!
