Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an American comic book series published by Mirage Studios , featuring the characters of the same name , with a year run from to Conceived by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird , it was initially intended as a one-shot, but due to its popularity it became an ongoing series. The comic inspired a franchise of five television series , six feature films , numerous video games , and a wide range of toys and merchandise. At WonderCon , it was announced that IDW Publishing had secured the rights to publish a new series and reprint the older comics. The concept originated from a comical drawing sketched out by Kevin Eastman during a casual evening of brainstorming with his friend Peter Laird. The drawing of a short, squat turtle wearing a mask with nunchaku strapped to its arms was humorous to the young artists, as it played upon the inherent contradiction of a slow, cold-blooded reptile with the speed and agility of Japanese martial arts. Laird suggested that they create a team of four such turtles, each specializing in a different weapon.
