I started reading comics with the TMNT series that Archies Comics published back in the 80s. I loved the Turtles so much I even sent my artwork to creators Laird and Eastman. They wrote me back and encouraged me to continue to draw. I still have their letter! So, I did just that. I kept drawing all my life. I had identified with Leonardo alot growing up so he has always been my favorite. Now that I’m drawing again I felt I should revisit where my comic book collecting all started.
