Next week sees the release of the latest installment of the DC/IDW crossover between two of their most iconic franchises, a sequel to the previous big hit 2015-2016 James Tynion and Freddie Williams II collaboration that proved popular enough that it hovered within the Top 25 in Direct Market sales throughout its run and even prompted some rumors of an animated adaptation.
The sequel, which pits both of these fan favorites up against Bane who has now taken over the Foot Clan is in full swing, with Batman and the Turtles planning to make a calculated strike against Bane’s forces…but he’s got a ace up his sleeve they aren’t expecting…!!
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #3 by James Tynion IV, Ryan Ferrier, and Freddie Williams II is in stores this Wednesday, January 17th and The Beat has an exclusive preview below!
Batman and the Turtles go on the offensive in the belief that they can take Bane down while he’s weakened, due to a lack of Venom on the Turtles’ world. But that’s not true any more! The Turtles’ foe Baxter Stockman has found a way to reproduce the deadly substance that feeds Bane—which means the Dark Knight and the Heroes on a Half-Shell are in for the fight of their lives.
