Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by James Tynion IV
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
This was so good! I love Batman, but I had never read a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. I didn’t even know that there was one, but I picked this up at my local library and it was amazing!
This is a cross-over story between Batman and TMNT, where the Turtles somehow end up in Gotham and it’s driving Batman bat-crazy. As we read along, we see that the Turtles along with their enemy of the Foot Clan have dimension traveled to the DC universe and need to get back to their own world before they essentially die. Batman thinks that they are the one working with the Foot Clan as they work to create a dimension portal, but as they start to work together, Batman learns that they are trying to stop the Foot Clan.
As things go, Raphael snaps and goes full-on anger mood on Batman, saying all the normal crap he does who no one knows what he and his family is going through, that they are unique in all that they do and Batman thinks that they are just a pet project at the moment. As the Turtles and Batman figure out how to work together though, we can see that they both realize that there is always more that reaches the eye. And that family isn’t always blood.
This was a great comic book and I’m really curious as to whether or not there is more in the series. I kind of hope there is, but if not, this was a great one-shot story!
