REVIEW: It’s Batman and The NINJA TURTLES… Yup, that says it all.

Okay, okay I’ll add a little more.

“And then they came. A flash of red… blue… purple… orange.. There was the glint of metal. The sound of blade on blade… Flesh hitting flesh.”

Yup, it’s a mashup that was unexpected, but more than happy to have it be made. Seeing Batman start a fight with the turtles, Mikey running into a pizza shop trying to warn people about a crazy guy in a bat suit. Just awesome. Fun and action packed comic all the way ’til the very end.

                                     “So he’s a nut in a dracula costume who punches clowns, what’s the big deal?”

At first bats is bent on being against the turtles until he finds out what they are and where they are from. Yup, we all know it… another dimension. There are just so many cool elements in this first issue of the batman/tmnt team up.

And is the shredder and the penguin working together??? As together as they can, and it’s just so bizarre that it somehow works. Well it works for shredder.

“If you have a problem with my plans, bird man, I am happy to end our partnership earlier than scheduled.”

Looking forward to the rest of the issues as well as the awesome cover art that is included in them.
