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.
