Comic book birthdays today

There may still not be much of a party atmosphere right now, but everything is starting to normalise out now, so maybe? But comics folk are always getting older and still celebrating that special date.

  • Mike W. Barr, writer of Batman, Star Trek and Maze Agency
  • Kevin Eastman, co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

If you are in comics and have a birthday coming up – or you know someone who has – get in touch at
