Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman is hoping to part with his first-ever character drawing of one of the heroes in a half-shell – for $2 million.
Eastman drew his first crime-fighting turtle in 1984, which means this year is TMNT’s 30th anniversary – perfect timing for the new live-action feature out in the UK in October.
“After 30 years of owning it, I think it is time to find a new home,” Eastman said.
Some funds from the sale will be donated to good causes: “We have a bunch of different charities we work with, and want to spread some turtle cheer to them. It just feels like the right time to let it go.”
