Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

DC Comics and IDW Publishing have teamed up to create a crossover that is 110% fan service: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We loved the first issue – read about it here – and maybe – just maybe – we had the opportunity to read the second issue a little early. Just like the first issue (which you can order here), writer James Tynion IV’s story is fun, artist Freddie E. Williams II and colorist Jeremy Colwell’s pages are overflowing with energy, and there’s of course a cliffhanger that’ll have you anxious to pick up the next issue. But what else does this issue have to offer?

Before we step into the future – will there finally be legitimate hover boards in 2016? – it’s time to reflect on the past. In 2015, quite a few awesome comic book series were published. There are several comics that won us over for totally different reasons, but we’ll keep it concise and take a quick look at just 25 of our favorite comics from 2015 (plus 5 honorable mentions). After all of the staff picked their favorites, we went ahead and ranked them. Obviously, there’s plenty of great comics out there and the list is sure to fluctuate from person-to-person. So, if your top choices aren’t below, go ahead and give them some love in the comments!

Batman TMNT Kevin Eastman

Article by Gregg Katzman

Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been incredibly popular for decades now. But Batman and the Ninja Turtles teaming-up? It seemed like a crossover that would be limited to a fan’s imagination. Now, DC and IDW Publishing have joined forces to make this dream come true. The Ninja Turtles – along with Shredder and the Foot Clan – find themselves in the concrete jungle that the Dark Knight has sworn to protect: Gotham City. What will it be like when these two sides meet? Which of Gotham’s heroes and villains will show up, and how will they play a role? Can the Ninja Turtles keep up with the Caped Crusader? The Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles limited series will go on sale December 9, and we were lucky enough to read the debut issue a little early. Thankfully, the issue lived up to the hype, and we want to tell you why it’s worth picking up! Don’t worry, this article is SPOILER-FREE!

You can pre-order Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 & 2 here: http://bit.ly/1MDK5R4 & http://bit.ly/1PEbQtD

So, we’ve thought about the countless scary comics that have been published over the years, and we have quite a few to recommend! Obviously, not every single horror/spooky comic will be on the list below, so if there’s one you really like that isn’t here, promote it in the comments! Also, don’t forget to stop by any of our three stores on Halloween for Comic Fest – there are free comics!
