Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles The Ultimate Visual History HC (2014 Insight Editions) comic books
1st printing. Written by Andrew Farago. Art by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Radical Mutations relates the amazing story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from their humble beginnings in the pages of a cult comic book, to their enduring status as cultural icons. Beginning with the creative spark that led comic book artists Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird to envision these unlikely heroes, this lavishly illustrated book tracks the Turtles' phenomenal explosion in popularity as they became mainstays of kids' TV and the protagonists of one of 1990s' biggest box office hits. Radical Mutations also looks at the periods when the Turtles briefly slipped out of fashion, showing how enthusiasm for these evergreen warriors was kept alive by new comic books, animated shows, and, of course, some hugely imaginative merchandising. Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 184 pages, full color. Cover price $50.00.
