Batman vs. The Ninja Turtles?
As a child growing up in the 90’s one of my favorite cartoons/franchises/collection action figures sets/anything in the world was the ninja turtles. Those toys and cartoons dominated the landscape in the way Jordan’s dominate urban footwear, and the Turtles still have massive nostalgic value to this day. On the other hand, since the 90’s and the original Michael Keaton Batman film and all the subsequent films, books, and events, people all over the world have grown to become fans of the Dark Knight in droves. Because the Turtles are technically a Mirage property, and Batman stays squarely in the clutches of DC, this crossover is one people many people never saw coming (much like the protagonists in its’ pages). Check the synopsis below, and look out for the books in stores and online as soon as December 9th.
DC Comics and IDW team up for the crossover you never saw coming as two of the greatest entertainment icons meet for the first time. In Gotham City, a series of deadly raids leads Batman to believe he’s up against a group of highly trained ninjas known as the Foot Clan. Somehow, they’ve crossed over to another dimension and are determined to take advantage of the situation while looking to get back home. But they haven’t come alone: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are hot on their trail. Get ready for excitement as heroes and villains from both worlds clash and team up in an epic battle that threatens the very fabric of reality.
