Batman Is Teaming up with the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
When I was growing up I drew all kinds of fun fan art that I would love to see happen. Some of it involved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teaming up with some of my favorite comic book characters. I had the Ninja Turtles teaming up with Captain America, Spider-Man, Spawn, and even Batman. So it's incredibly cool to see that DC Comics and IDW Publishing are developing a Ninja Turtle and Batman crossover comic!
The six-part miniseries comic project was announced at Comic-Con this weekend, and it will tell a story that features Krang sending the Ninja Turtles and Shredder to Gotham City. Here's the synopsis:
In the ongoing power struggle between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, General Krang, and the Foot Clan, allegiances have shifted and the battle lines have been drawn. Krang concocts a plan to rid himself of both the Turtles and Shredder by transporting them to another dimension, where they land in the dark and dangerous streets of Gotham City. It isn’t long before they encounter Gotham’s most famous resident, Batman. The Caped Crusader may be their only hope of overcoming their enemies and getting back home. But not before they encounter a whole cast of Gotham’s most infamous rogues.
The comic will be written by James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, Constantine) and drawn by Freddie E. Williams II (Robin, Captain Atom). Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman and other artists will be providing some cool variant covers for the series. Tynion said in a statement:
“I’ve been extremely luck to spend so much time working in Gotham City, but it’s always a thrill to see the world of Batman through new eyes. Taking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on a Gotham adventure is a fanboy dream come true.”
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be released this November.
