Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reuniting for Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

Want to feel old? The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year. And Batman has reached his 80th anniversary this year. As part of the fun the heroes in a half shell are reuniting with Batman for Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.

In the first two blockbuster volumes, our heroes battled the evil of the Foot Clan in Gotham and then went head-to-head with Bane in New York. But now, in the third and biggest chapter, Krang has gotten his hands on the most dangerous technologies in the DC Universe—and no universe is safe from his wrath!

Writer James Tynion IV, artist Freddie E. Williams and colorist Jeremy Colwell, the creative team behind the first two installments will return for the third chapter.


‘I still remember the e-mail asking me if I wanted to write the first Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover,’ Tynion said in a statement. ‘My brain couldn’t even process what I was reading for a few seconds, and I started having a panic attack about fitting it into my work schedule. Then, finally, I pictured Michelangelo’s reaction to seeing the T. rex in the Batcave for the first time and started laughing out loud.’

Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman will provide variant covers for the series. The six-issue series kicks off May 1.

That wasn’t the only bit of Batman/Turtles news this week. An animated movie, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, based on the first volume will be released on 4K, Blu-ray and digital this spring.
