Batman is the greatest superhero of all time, so I am interested. I enjoyed both previous crossovers too and this obviously won't be a re-tread of either them.

This should be pretty good, I'm glad Freddie Williams will be drawing the Turtles again

I'm still holding out hope for a TMNT/Spider-Man team-up though!!!

IDW just wants all of my money, at least give me dinner first.
Seriously I remember paying out the noise for the Eastman Batman variants all winter and I feel like it's coming again. I should actually just blame D.C. I guess.

Lets do this!

Awesome.
But geez, it's like IDW's trying to bankrupt me.
All these issues have really hurt my wallet.

I cannot say I am really thrilled about this.
The first 2 crossovers were enjoyable but not particularly special.
I will buy this new installment and enjoy it for what it is.

Forever War, (another) Image finisher, Volume 3 reprints... This would get me excited !

Great news, the first series was excellent (and I nabbed a piece of art from issue #1 to boot!) and interesting to see where this goes.

Likewise, especially following Dimension X last month, and Ghostbusters 2 crossover in November. I'm just hoping there's no where near as many variants for issue #1 like last time!

i'd have gladly seen Ra's Mutate The League of Assassins, or see Shredder juice up the foot soldiers with Venom, or both in a team up.

i really did enjoy the first crossover. it was just a little to slow to actually get started, and then rushed to get to the finish line.

so much of the cool stuff i'd have loved to have seen was told to us rather than shown.

To this day I still cannot tell my wife how much money I spent on TMNT/Batman #1 variants

I love buying TMNT comics but I feel like I must have been holding the monkey's paw this year...

i'm not bothering with any of the 1:50 variants like last time.
that was just ridiculous!

it's amazing to see what those variants sell for now that the hype has died.

Considering the time that this crossover is taking place (judging by when the first team up would have been in comparison to the current storyline of the comic) this probably takes place right around the time that the Turtles left Splinter and the foot.

Donnie could still be feeling the effects after literally having Bebop and Rocksteady smashing his shell in.

If that is implied or stated, then sure, that will work for me.

But 99 to 1, this is just going to be more "hey, it's Donnie, the loser nerd with a stick who gets his shell kicked all the time. Ha ha, what a dweeb."

Personally, I think that ugly yellow piping along the creases of the Bat-suit is the biggest offense.

Just randomly made it anything but yellow. I really despise how that seems to be the kneejerk go-to of colorists. "What color of shirt is April wearing? Huh. Yellow, I guess! Like the jumpsuit from that show!" Ugh.

Also made Casey's hair longer. And balanced out the Turtles' different skin tones. And "fixed" Bane's eyes (crudely). A lot of artists like to draw Bane like he's wearing red contact lenses that magically merge into his stretchy mask... always seems to be a strange choice. They're supposed to be built into his mask. Like this:



And not this:

Even though it doesn't really tickle my fancy, I'm glad to see this crossover continue. The first crossover was hugely successful and it's great stepping stone to get people into TMNT comics, so there's that.

It's also cool just to see IDW getting out there and making things happen. They really do try and take care of this property, which I appreciate, even if they haven't hit anything out of the park for me yet.
I'll check out the first issue, because Freddie draws some great turtles and I really enjoyed the colors from the last series.

Haha, I haven't read enough Batman comics to realize the artists were taking such stylistic liberties with Bane's mask.

Along with the creepy Knightfall covers by Kelley Jones/Bob LeRose, this scene from BTAS will always be my enduring image of Bane:

I'm ready for round 2 (3), I really dug the first crossover and I really like Williams' art style (except for his rendition of sais )

being this isn't cannon and doesn't really fit at all into either DC or IDW timeline, James Tynion is probably given free reign to do as he pleases.

my guess is that the 2012 Nick cartoon has left the impression that Donnie isn't as good a warrior as Leo or Raph.
