Here's one you probably thought you'd never see. This week we saw the STAR TREK/GREEN LANTERN crossover between DC Comics and IDW. Soon we'll see Batman crossover with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

No Caption Provided

The six-issue miniseries will begin in November and is set in the streets of Gotham City.

The story will be brought to life by James Tynion IV (BATMAN: ETERNAL, CONSTANTINE) and star artist Freddie E. Williams II (ROBIN, CAPTAIN ATOM) handling interior and cover art. In addition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman and other to-be-announced artists will illustrate variant covers.

"Batman is the world’s most popular Super Hero. He continues to be reimagined and this new crossover showcases his ongoing appeal as a global pop icon for the ages,” said Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics, Bob Harras.

“We here at IDW have enjoyed collaborating with DC Entertainment on fan favorite crossovers comics,” said IDW President, Greg Goldstein. “TMNT is a global phenomenon, beloved by millions. Pairing the Turtles with Batman will prove to be a publishing event that transcends comic book culture.”

“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,” explained writer James Tynion IV. “Taking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on a Gotham adventure is a fanboy dream come true.”

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.

Sounds pretty nuts and pretty cool.

November is starting to sound like a great month for comics. First, a new Bond series and now this crossover? I cannot wait for November to come.

@g_man: He hates him in the same way that some user accuse you of hating books or characters when you post something they don't like.

Like if you post "Does Moon Knight always win?". I'm guessing you knew that when you asked and were referring to a running joke from the podcast.

Am I right or making a mistake? I'm a bit behind and don't know if you still do that. :p

No one knows or cares who that second guy is. It wouldn't make money like Batman would.

They did that in the animation and I'm almost positive it was done at the original comics run as well. Would be nice if they'd repeat it.

You mean no one but you? Yoyimbo the Rabbit has been one of my favourite anthro comic heroes for decades. I wish Usagi would have more visibility & popularity these days, he'd make a great afternoon cartoon or live action-movie/animation.
While the plot here is old as King Tut's diaper wrappings it can work if the writers get the character chemistry right.

Please for the love of god let these things happen.

  • Have batman say the phrases "What the shell," "Cowabunga!" and "Turtle Power!"
  • Have Batman eat Pizza.
  • Have a one on one serious and GOOD one on one Batman vs Shredder fight.
