Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Spoiler-Free Review by Gregg Katzman

Isn’t it so surreal that there’s a Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover? I mean, this is something that so many of us have wanted to see for decades, but considering the Dark Knight is with DC Comics and the Heroes in a Half Shell are with IDW Publishing, it just didn’t seem probable. But here we are, reading a limited series that has Splinter and his four mutant sons trapped in Gotham City… with Shredder, too! For many of us, this is a dream come true.

Article by Jarrett Kruse

 

Unless you have been living under a rock the last few years, you know that FUNKO’s little POP! Vinyls line is a very big deal.

Batman v Superman

The wait to see director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman is almost over, and now Warner Bros. and DC are asking us fans one big question: Who will win? Will Batman’s brilliant mind and technology make Superman learn what it means to be a man? Or will Superman’s sheer might stop the Dark Knight from humbling him? Or maybe Wonder Woman will knock some sense into both of them?! We won’t find out until the blockbuster DC movie opens on March 25th, but for now, we want to have some fun picking a side! This time, we’re going to support Big Blue! Kal-El/Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, totally has what it takes to take the Dark Knight down a peg, and we have four quick and simple reasons why. Don’t worry, we’ll eventually share a counter-point article that roots for Batman, too!
