So, i ordered in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle #1 issue that came out late last year from DC and IDW.  It was simply to have a look at it, and in case someone placed a late order for it.  No one did, and it rolled in and finally after  week or so i read it.

One of the quickest reorders I’ve put in for was for B/TMNT #2.  This comic is a hell of a lot of fun.  The story, for what you can do with a cross over, is great, if not that big a surprise (how else would you get some mutant reptiles and 1 sage rodent to Gotham?!)

The series is up to issue #4 of 6 and i’d recommend if you aren’t already, get some orders in for this, it’s a classic Batman book and classic Turtles tale.  Don’t get me wrong, i’m not saying this is going to sit up there with Killing Joke, Dark Knight etc, but it will be one of the strongest Batman crossovers ever played out.

The art is dark and broody as you’d expect but has a bit of a colourful pop to keep it exciting.  In someways, it does remind me of the original Turtle comic art.

It’s not lost that when Batman and Splinter are together, you’re dealing with two smart mutant rodents, one of the ‘flying rodent’ variety, and the other of the ooze!

Look it up, check out some reviews and, if you love either or both of the Turtles and Batman, this is one for your stash.  Goes well with Pizza.  Party on!
