First-Look At "Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Crossover Comic Book Mini-Series

It's a fantasy held by a lot of comic book fans - what would happen if Batman got to team up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Well, now you don't have to imagine what that would be like by acting it out with your collectible action figures, because it's finally happening for real in comic book form. Cowabunga!

A joint effort between DC comics and IDW Publishing, the company who currently owns the comic publishing rights to the "Ninja Turtles", "Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1" marks the beginning of an all-new mini-series by "Batman Eternal" writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie E. Williams II.

In the brand-new Batman/TMNT crossover comic book series, the ninja turtles are transported to another dimension where they end up in Gotham City, along with the deadly Foot clan. Now they have to work together with the Caped Crusader to get to back to their world and stop their ninja enemies - and one can only hope they get a break to compare batarangs and shurikens at some point, too!

Check out this fantastic preview of the issue, from MTV News, before it goes on sale next Wednesday, December 9, and get ready for all the pizza and quiet brooding you can possibly stand!:
