BATMAN AND TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES TEAM UP IN NEW COMIC SERIES!

Batman has been especially sociable this year, having crossed paths with Superman, Wonder Woman, and a time-traveling (or dream-hopping… it was hard to tell) Flash all in the span of two hours and change. But the Dark Knight’s next team-up is poised to be his most joyful in quite some time. This fall, the black-clad vigilante will find unlikely comrades in a foursome of likewise unlicensed crime fighters: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Meeting halfway between the alleys of Gotham City and the sewers of Manhattan, Bruce Wayne will team up with Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael for the limited series comic Batman/TMNT Adventures.

Nerdist got the exclusive on this new venture, the first issue of which is expected to hit shelves mid-autumn. Batman/TMNT Adventures comes from writer Matthew K. Manning, who has written Batman and Ninja Turtles comics alike, and illustrator Jon Sommariva of TMNT Amazing Adventures fame.

http://nerdist.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/batman_tmnt_redj01_sm.jpeg

The story will follow Batman, in the style we know and love from Batman: The Animated Series, in his pursuit of his usual band of foes after they break free—as they always seem to do—from the confines of Arkham Asylum. The assorted criminals will find their way across canons into New York City, where Bats will have no choice but to call upon the help of the pizza-loving goofballs devoted to keeping the Big Apple safe. It won’t only be Batman’s foes who stand in the way of justice, however; the Turtles’ collective of enemies will step in to ensure the longevity of this new taste of chaos. And of course, we’re likely to see some contribution from the heroes’ pals—perhaps Robin, Alfred, and Commissioner Gordon will lend a hand, ditto April O’Neil and Casey Jones.

Just as Batman has had a pretty standout year on the big screen, so have the Ninja Turtles, whose Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows endeared to fans, and more than a few critics. Likewise, the Turtles are currently living large on Nickelodeon, where their eponymous animated series is presently in the midst of its fourth season.

The inceptive 32-page issue—the first of six altogether—will run you $3.99, and should hit stores November 9.

Huge fan of the Batman Animated Series so this is cool but I feel a little burnt out since we just finished a Batman/TMNT series I didn't think we needed another 6 issues so soon.

Is IDW publishing this time around? I am tired of ads and 4,000 variants, (and I love variants.)

Is this the last season of Batman:TAS with thevRobin replacement and cartoonish remodeled villains? It its Natman:TAS I knowvand love I am all for it, but if its the WB! season with Nick Ninja Turtles I think I will read the trade. Not as jazzed for this as the just completed amazing team up.

Let's see every universe crossover with a different incarnation of Batman:

- Adam West Batman crossover with the Original 80's Turtles. I want to see 60's Batman fight Fred Wolf Shredder.

- 1989 movie Burton Batman crossover with the 1990 Movie 1 Turtles. They fit right in with each other.

- JLU version of Batman crossover with the 2k3 Turtles as they both aired in the early 2000's

Yes.

i've enjoyed both the New Animated Adventures and Amazing Adventures, so i'll definitely be giving this an add to the pull-list.

so the speculation is that TMNT Amazing Adventures is getting canceled, and i guess it's getting replaced with this?

This is a 6 issue mini-series, similar to the IDW Batman/TMNT crossover.

My guess is Amazing Adventures is over though, but IDW will continue to make Nick TMNT comics via either specials or mini's like these.

Amazing Adventures failed so horribly because it failed to deliver on what was promised. It was supposed to be its own thing and not dependent on the cartoon. After seeing a few issues, they might as well have not changed the title.

i thought Amazing Adventures was supposed to be more directly tied into the continuity of the Nick series, unlike New Animated Adventures which didn't even address the season 2 finale or the retreat to Northampton or anything.

hopefully this gets right into the adventure instead of cramming tons of exposition into the first 3 or 4 issues, then having to rush the resolution of the final issue?

but the pacing was very unbalanced!

i for one am really excited for this cross-over because i really enjoy the nickelodeon tmnt as well.

this is a pretty perfect match up! though i don't expect the art to be as dark as either TV show? it'll probably just look like the Amazing Adventures?

Holy **** yes immensely better!!!! The 2k3 turtles would have been perfect for this or hell even the 87 Red Sky era turtles would have been better!! Hell the Red Sky era was created bc of BTAS.

The Nick series just simply does mesh well with BTAS.

CyberCubed
07-24-2016, 12:56 AM
It all depends how its written. The dark episodes of the Nicktoon can fit in well with the final season of B:TAS with the new designs, which is what I assume the animation style will be.

I can see Tim Drake getting along with Michaelangelo, Batgirl geeking out over tech with Don, Raph and Nightwing talking about following a leader, and Leo and Batman. It can be very different than the IDW version if this is the case.

I'm torn on this book I love Batman: TAS its by far my favorite version of Batman. But I really dont have any interest in the Nick turtles. Not to mention the tone of both series dont mesh what so ever. This would have worked well with a 2k3 turtles and Batman TAS or a Nick Turtles and Teen Titans animated team up. This I dont know maybe I'll just wait on the trade for this one.

Yes.
Well, 66 Bats has had a great run over the past couple of years.
There was a cool Man From UNCLE crossover and other interesting concepts.
I'd be totally excited for that Bats incarnation.

All that said, that initial image from this 2nd crossover is nice.

I'm sure I'll read it as it comes out, but will look forward to the hardback compilation. The first hardback arrived today. Going to read it all again at the weekend.

I was just trying to get Andrew's goat there. I don't appreciate how he's always talking smack about the original cartoon, and I know I'm not the only person around here who feels that way.

In all seriousness though, I could see Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns iteration mix well with Mirage.

You're a moron.

In all seriousness though, I could see Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns iteration mix well with Mirage.

That would be dumb. Maybe if it was way older Mirage Turtles, but even then outside of that first Dark Knight Returns mini-series the second two have been pretty weird and out there. The only universe worth seeing the Mirage Turtles would be the core DC universe. But obviously they'd need to step into another dimension... there's really no way to reconcile all of the events of the DCU happening simultaneously to the events of Mirage TMNT.

You put Mirage Studios on way too high of a pedestal, man. If Mr. Laird decides to do something special for us fans like this, great but don't get carried away and think it means he's gonna come back and finally finish Volume 4, which somehow leads to more stories set in that reality. Even if he did, I kinda feel like it might be "too little-too late" for a lot of folks who've long since lost interest.

You're not really following, Jeph. There was this thing... this 63 million dollar sale. He sold all of TMNT, all of it. Since then, people outside of his sphere of influence have been making new TMNT universes... and this is the first time he's ever actively been drawing stuff of them, based on stuff he never approved and didn't design or sign off on being designed.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm actually starting to grow tired of the Ninja Turtles, but I honestly feel like you're making way too big a deal of this. Peter Laird is free to do whatever he wants with his life and if he decides he wants to get involved with newer iterations of the TMNT that's great, but I wouldn't go jizzing in my pants over it like you appear to be doing.

Whoa, easy there, tiger. I'm just expressing my opinion on the matter. I will admit it is cool whenever Mr. Laird gets involved with anything TMNT related, but at the same time I just don't agree with Andrew on what makes this occasion so special. Maybe it's because I don't obsess over what happened with the franchise half a decade ago. Mirage Studios is basically on life support these days, and there's a safe bet that by the end of the decade it'll be gone for good. I've accepted that. It's time to move on.

He's an annoying troll, and you've done your fair share of bitching at him. I leave him alone in the comics section, because he behaves himself here. Unlike you.

I'm not sticking up for Andrew, he can cut this **** too. But the fact remains that he has tried to change the subject but you're being a thick headed idiot for the sole purpose of arguing with him.

Go cyberstalk someone. Just not on the Drome.

Okay, smart-@$$... so what version of Batman would you say deserves to meet the Mirage/Image TMNT universe?! I for one would go with this interpretation:

not trying to be facetious but i think these two might actually be an appropriate pair?

for all it's bad points, i do find the Batman & Robin movie very entertaining :lol:

Tmnt : Next Mutation . . . . . . not so much!!

So to sum up, Jeph and Andrew exchanging potshots and Peter Laird drew a cover for Nick TMNT meeting Batman!?

Hey, Jeph. If you've really grown up and away from TMNT, maybe stop talking about TMNT. You sound like an ex-boyfriend.

"I'm totally over Jennifer. Jennifer was crazy. Jennifer was a b!tch. I'm totally over her. I don't even think about Jennifer anymore. Yup, I am most definitely 100% completely absolutely over Jennifer. Ha ha ha. Of course I don't miss Jennifer. ... ... I'm so lonely, take me back, Jennifer! I CAN CHANGE!!!"

I had no idea this was still going on.

If you've really grown up and away from TMNT

He hasn't, and if he tells you that he is being dishonest with you and with himself. Mostly he spends his time writing fanfiction stories literally injecting himself as a character into them, where he hangs out with Splinter and goes on adventures with Marty McFly and My Little Pony in Smallville and such. Because nothing says sound minded than that.

Mirage Studios is basically on life support these days, and there's a safe bet that by the end of the decade it'll be gone for good. I've accepted that. It's time to move on.

can't honestly say "it's a safe bet" for certain.

Well the problem with Mirage is PL doesn't seem to want any comics to be produced without him directly working on them. I mean if Jim Lawson said he wanted to make a new TMNT comic at Mirage, would PL even let him?

i think legally as part of the agreement, Peter Lair would HAVE to be actively involved in any Mirage Tmnt comics produced?

i wonder if even just being Editor or drafting the over-all script would count?

But can't that be as simple as Jim Lawson pitching a story to him, and PL saying, "OK, go do it, but I have to approve where it goes."

Isn't that how most of Tales of the TMNT's stories came about? PL was pitched stories but he didn't actively write or handle most of them.

No. He has to be heavily involved in it, not just from an editorial or approval side. That's the deal with Nick.

There's probably ways around it. i.e., just basically let Jim Lawson write/draw a comic, and then just put his own name as a co-writer. And maybe ink the cover or something. That'd probably satisfy the requirements. And it has to be in black and white.

Um, I think you're misunderstanding what I've been saying. I'm not completely done with TMNT, I'm just not as into them as I used to be.

Mostly he spends his time writing fan-fiction stories literally injecting himself as a character into them, where he hangs out with Splinter and goes on adventures with Marty McFly and My Little Pony in Smallville and such. Because nothing says sound minded than that.

that hopefully would come to pass one of these days?
Peter is a very talented inker and he probably wouldn't even have to ink the entire comic, even if he just did a few pages worth?

still though ...... i'm not holding my breath, but it'd be really awesome if him and Jim Lawson concluded Vol. 4.

i know some disagree, but i very much prefer the B&W myself.

Doubtful. Peter wouldn't ever want to revisit volume 4 unless he was going "all in" as he was before. I don't think he'd ever give anyone else the keys to it.
