Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: First Look at Issue #2

The Crisis in a half shell continues

Who could have guessed that Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would wind up being two great tastes that taste even greater together? DC Entertainment and IDW are continuing their hot streak of hilariously over-the-top collisions between the rain-slicked gloom of Gotham and the cartoon color of the Turtles’ New York City with Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III--the third and final miniseries in the crossover saga. And this time, TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman is getting in on the action alongside writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie Williams II. Take a look at this awesome preview of Batman/TMNT III #2 below, via GameSpot!

While the first miniseries brought the villainous Foot Clan to Gotham and the second brought longtime Batman foe, Bane, to NYC, the third series is getting bigger than ever before as Krang--though probably not the Krang you might be familiar with--poses a threat to the multiverse itself.

That’s right, the weird and wild world of Batman/TMNT is going full Cosmic Crisis as Krang is mixed in with the Anti-Monitor. And that’s only the beginning of Batman/TMNT III’s reimagining of classic characters: The Turtles themselves all borrow looks from the roster of Robin alumni like Red Hood and Nightwing while Joker is now the Shredder-like leader of the terrifying Smile Clan.

Issue #2 continues the multiversal insanity as Batman and the Turtles are pitted against strange black-and-white doppelgangers of themselves that may or may not be from some other dimension. Or, maybe, something even more insidious is at play.

Batman/TMNT III hits shelves Wednesday, June 5, 2019!

Krang’s true power has been revealed, and now it’s up to Batman and the Turtles to stop him, but their only hope may lie with the strange, yet familiar, visitor from another world.

From Bleeding Cool:

An Origin Retold in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 Preview

The worlds of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are undergoing a crisis in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, the third crossover comic between the caped crusader and the heroes in a half shell. For one thing, the continuities of the two universes have been merged, with Batman and the Turtles living together and sharing characteristics, with Turtles dressed like Robins and a Shredder/Joker mash-up.

And now, Batman and the Robin-Turtles have come face-to-face with someone claiming to be the original Raphael, in authentic black and white just like the original Eastman and Laird comics. And to prove he’s the real thing, he’s able to easily kick all five of their asses while simultaneously recounting his own origin story.

See it all in the preview of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 below, and look for the issue in stores on Wednesday.

NEW YORK--Nickelodeon and The Pantone Color Institute have partnered to create official SpongeBob Yellow and Patrick Star Pink colors in commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, one of the most iconic TV series and characters ever created. Nickelodeon is celebrating 20 years of SpongeBob SquarePants with the “Best Year Ever”—a tribute to the number-one kids’ animated series on TV that has generated a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base.

“For two decades, SpongeBob SquarePants has inspired millions of people,” said Charlotte Castillo, Senior Vice President, Franchise Planning, Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products. “From our partnership with the Pantone Color Institute to our collaborations with artists around the world – we’re commemorating SpongeBob’s 20th Anniversary by celebrating his optimism, imagination and creativity.”

“We were very honored to partner with Nickelodeon on the creation of colors for these two globally iconic characters. Inspired by SpongeBob’s enthusiasm, playfulness and fun-loving nature, the new SpongeBob Yellow we created is a luminous golden hue that reflects the energy of the sun, radiating joy and happiness, and sparking imagination,” expressed Laurie Pressman, Vice-President-Pantone Color Institute. “Patrick Star Pink, a warm and inviting coral pink is the perfect companion color to SpongeBob Yellow. Spirited and affable, a light hearted pink hue is ideally suited to the fun and laughter of being with your best friend.”

In celebration of the SpongeBob Yellow launch, Nickelodeon is asking fans to show their love of SpongeBob by wearing their #SpongeBobYellow on Tuesday, June 4 and post their looks to @SpongeBob on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Brazilian-born, Miami-based international pop artist Romero Britto reimagined SpongeBob in his trademark vibrant, bold and colorful patterns.

In addition to the Pantone Color Institute partnership, Nickelodeon also collaborated with artists around the world to create unique interpretations of SpongeBob.

Brazilian-born, Miami-based international pop artist Romero Britto reimagined SpongeBob in his trademark vibrant, bold and colorful patterns. Britto creates art to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him, and his iconic style has been described in the media as exuding “warmth, optimism and love”. Britto’s SpongeBob mixed-media art installation will be exhibited at a pop-up SpongeBob experience in Los Angeles later in the year; and Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products (VNCP) is in discussions with partners to translate his original SpongeBob creation to product.

“It is a huge honor for me to create an art piece that celebrates such a beautiful anniversary as the iconic SpongeBob,” said Britto. “He is a character loved by millions of children and families, including my own. My son grew up watching SpongeBob, and so this piece is such a special one that brings me happiness. I feel privileged and thankful to be a part of this partnership that can now be enjoyed by everyone around the world.”

Britto, UK-born artist, Jon Burgerman, known as the purveyor of doodles, created 50 SpongeBob pieces in his unique 'doodle' art style.

In addition to Britto, UK-born artist, Jon Burgerman, known as the purveyor of doodles, created 50 SpongeBob pieces in his unique ‘doodle’ art style.

Burgerman added: “I love the whole world of SpongeBob, from the characters, the settings and most of all the humour (and heart) of the show. Although SpongeBob is a design classic, it’s the characters and their relatable personalities that have kept us entertained over so many years. Stephen Hillenburg created a classic, and it’s an honour to be part of this collaboration.”

In Asia, Secret Fresh--a collective of Filipino artists representing a variety of mediums, including graffiti, comics, film, animation, music, architecture, sculpture, fine art and design-- also collaborated with Nickelodeon on the project. Secret Fresh’s artists used SpongeBob as inspiration for limited-edition art, toys and prints.

Artists include Christian Tamondong and Ronald Ventura alongside 20 other artists whose expressions of SpongeBob ranged from canvas paintings to porcelain and polystone figurines. The pieces will be showcased at an upcoming Secret Fresh gallery exhibition, and VNCP are in discussions with retailers to bring the creations to stores across Asia.

SpongeBob’s 20th Anniversary also features the Friday, July 12, premiere of “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” an original mixed live-action and animated special, and leads up to the Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies theatrical, “The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge,” opening in May 2020.

SpongeBob gets artsy for 20th anniversary

Working with artists and design companies like Pantone, Nickelodeon is hoping to breathe fresh life into the 20-year-old IP and inspire unique products in new categories, says SVP of franchise planning Charlotte Castillo.

SpongeBob SquarePants is ready to blow out the birthday candles and unwrap new licensing opportunities. In celebration of the brand’s 20th anniversary, Nickelodeon is partnering with a number of artists to create new interpretations of the famous yellow sponge. All of the new art and interpretations on the well-known brand will then be available for licensing partners to use in the future and are expected to inspire new consumer products to celebrate this anniversary.

One collaboration will see Pantone—the design company best known for its proprietary color matching system—create SpongeBob SquarePants Yellow and Patrick Star Pink. Now those colors will be available for any future licensing partners, to get everything exactly right. It will also be part of the Pantone color library for people who work on fields such as packaging, print, textiles and plastics.

“The partnership with Pantone is a celebration of that super recognizable yellow,” says Charlotte Castillo, SVP of franchise planning for Viacom Nickelodeon consumer products. “We feel a real sense of ownership around that shade, and now with SpongeBob SquarePants Yellow we’re setting a new standard for partners in the future.”

Artists like Jon Burgerman and Romero Britto were encouraged to reinterpret SpongeBob in their own style as part of the year-long celebration. Burgerman is known for his doodles (pictured below) and has created 50 unique SpongeBob pieces in his art style. Britto’s iteration was created in his colorful style (pictured at the top of story). He is also working on a mixed-media piece that will be shown at a SpongeBob 20th anniversary pop-up event later this year (the location and date will be announced at a later time). Secret Fresh, meanwhile, is an artist collective based in the Philippines and has tasked more than 20 artists with creating their own takes on the series, ranging from paintings to porcelain figurines. Viacom Nickelodeon’s consumer products team is in discussions with retailers to bring some of these iterations to stores across Asia.

For all of the artists, licensees and retailers are expected to bring product to shelves starting in Q4, through to spring/summer 2020.

“Something we’ve always leaned into is how many different people relate to SpongeBob, and how they interpret him in unique ways,” Castillo says. “In terms of retail, we’re working with these interpretations in a few different ways, including apparel and collectibles.”

In addition to offering these artists’ interpretations to existing licensing partners to use as inspiration, Nickelodeon will also ink new deals to create consumer products inspired by the artwork. First up, it’s looking at the homewares category and how it can incorporate this new art into prints.

“It’s important to keep giving our licensees fresh, new takes on the characters,” Castillo says. “This is also an opportunity for us to create new partnerships and break into different categories.”

These partnerships come as Nickelodeon continues to celebrate the July 1999 premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants with content and consumer products. Previously announced efforts include a new product line from master toy partner Alpha Group and a dedicated YouTube channel for the brand. The year-long celebration will end in 2020 with the summer premiere of the feature film The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge, from Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures.

SpongeBob’s birthday comes in a year full of major milestones, including Barbie’s 60th anniversary and Sesame’s 50th birthday, which brands are using as an opportunity to not just slap a birthday banner up but refresh their offerings with new products and new looks.
