As many comic readers know, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s iconic media franchise the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles owes its entire existence to Marvel’s Daredevil. The duo that created the turtles were huge fans of Frank Miller’s run on the character, tying the origin of their turtles directly to Matt Murdock’s own.
To date, Eastman has only worked at Marvel doing mostly variant covers, and writing/drawing a Conan story back in 2020, but now Marvel has confirmed he’s getting to play in the Daredevil sandbox.
Marvel’s official solicitations for March 2022 have been confirmed by the publisher and among them the final issue of their Elektra anthology series, Elektra: Black, White & Blood. The fourth issue of the series will feature a story written and drawn by Eastman.
Only a few details about Eastman’s story were confirmed, but they seem to indicated that a potential crossover between Daredevil and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could finally be happening. The description for the story reads: “Kevin Eastman’s fondness for the Marvel U is the stuff of legend! Here he gets to turn Hell’s Kitchen into his playground, and the results are as radical as you’d expect! Cowabunga! Let’s get pizza!”
