Kevin Eastman Closes Out #InStoreKickOff #ConKickOff2016 – Goodnight All!

2016-03-06 (6)Kevin Eastman closed out the second In-Store Convention Kick-Off, talking about his love for the medium and the effect that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has had on his life, from the earliest smallest days when they felt they wouldn't sell one single comic…

And how the kids who grew up with Turtles, now have kids who discover Turtles on their own – and finally the parents don't object.

He also recommended that anyone who visits the San Diego comic book gallery at IDW's offices, to look into his studio which is part of the exhibit, and see all the toys he's buying and comics he's reading along the shelves next to his art boards…

And with that, it's 1.15am in the UK, I haven't stood up for a few hours. Thank you to Phil Boyle, Ryan Boyle, Kevin White, everyone behind the Instore Convention Kick-Off 2016, the sponsors, the publishers, the creators, thanks to Dan Wickline and Christine Marie for providing me with some temporary relief, I hope you guys watching the show at over 300 stores enjoyed yourselves, and for those who couldn't, I hope that Bleeding Cool could help.

Tomorrow… there may be a little less on Bleeding Cool. Maybe. Night all!
