SDCC 2015: Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Crossover Announced

That’s right.  You didn’t read the title wrong.  DC Comics and IDW have announced at San Diego Comic Con that they are partnering for a crossover title between The Dark Knight and the Heroes on a Half-Shell.


The story will be brought to life by James Tynion IV and star artist Freddie E. Williams II (Robin) handling interior and cover art.  In addition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman and other to-be-announced artists will illustrate variant covers.


“I’ve been extremely lucky to spend so much time working in Gotham City, but it’s always a thrill to see the world of Batman through new eyes” Tynon said in the official press release. “Taking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on a Gotham Adventure is a fanboy dream come true.”


Here’s the official description of the story: “In the ongoing power struggle between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, General Krang, and the Foot Clan, allegiances have shifted and the battle lines have been drawn. Krang concocts a plan to rid himself of both the Turtles and Shredder by transporting them to another dimension, where they land in the dark and dangerous streets of Gotham City. It isn’t long before they encounter Gotham’s most famous resident, Batman. The Caped Crusader may be their only hope of overcoming their enemies and getting back home. But not before they encounter a whole cast of Gotham’s most infamous rogues.”
