Batman & the TMNT: December Can’t Arrive Fast Enough


It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of TMNT in all of it’s incarnations (yes, even Next Mutation & the Coming Out of Their Shells Tour) so every month when a new issue of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ongoing hits shops, I get excited. Not just for the great story currently being written by Tom Waltz and not just for the beautifully rendered artwork by Mateus Santolouco, but because, as stated, I am a fan. I’m also a fan of comics and good storytelling in general and that book hasn’t failed to deliver that combination since it’s inception. Being a fan of comics, it’s hard not to have a favorite Marvel and/or DC hero as well and in the case of the latter, mine is Batman. You could only imagine my face when I first read that the Heroes In A Half-Shell would be meeting the Dark Knight later this year! I was stoked! Hell, just writing about it gives me goosebumps!

While I’m heavily anticipating the release of the first issue, I read online about what the main plot of the series is and according to what I read on, it revolves around Batman finding out that The Foot Clan have been raiding Gotham City and that they were teleported there from another dimension but of course, they didn’t come alone. We all know how these types of crossovers work; Heroes with common cause are at odds with one another at first and as the story progresses, they realize they have a mutual enemy and then team up and save the day from there. I’m wondering which, not if, of Batman’s rogues will show up and align with The Foot. Come December 9th, I won’t have to wonder anymore.

Are you looking forward to this crossover? Sound off below in the comments section!
