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.

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.
