The Creator's Bill of Rights:
A Letter from Dave Sim 21

Above is some promotional art for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #8 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.

In May of 2008, Peter Laird and Dave Sim came up with an agreement concerning the reprint rights to TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #8 (July 1986). The comic book featured the guest-appearance of Daveís Cerebus and team-up with Peter Laird and Kevin Eastmanís Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

In October of 2009, Peter Laird sold the Teenage Mutant Turtles to Viacom for approximately $60 million. I was curious to find out how this deal affected Dave and Peterís agreement. I wrote Dave. I also e-mailed Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman about this, as well.

Hereís what Dave Sim has to say about the Viacom sale and itís affects on TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #8. -Al Nickerson
