When it comes to comic book crossovers, Batman is king. The Dark Knight has crossed paths with Spider-Man, Daredevil, Judge Dredd, Danger Girl, Spawn, Aliens, Predator, Hellboy, and the Punisher, among others. But it took over thirty years for Batman to finally meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
DC Comics, in collaboration with IDW, are publishing the five-issue Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles miniseries by James T Tynion IV and Freddie E Williams II. In this story, the Turtles have found themselves trapped in a world that isn’t their own: the DC Universe! But they aren’t alone in Gotham City; as Shredder and his Foot Clan have also traveled to this Earth…and they intend to stay.
After the prerequisite misunderstanding between heroes, Batman and the TMNT have joined forces to take down their mutual foes. Even Shredder has found an ally in the Penguin, although Oswald Cobblepot may not like the current terms of his deal.
The Batcave is overrun with turtles—and its landlord is not at all pleased about it. But Batman’s going to have to put aside his animosity toward his uninvited guests because he’s about to have his first run-in with their deadliest enemy, Shredder! Meanwhile, the Turtles must face up to the grim possibility that they might never get back to their world.
DC has released several preview pages from Batman/TMNT #3, which you can see in our gallery below. There’s even a variant cover by TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman!
