In an unprecedented cross-company event, DC and IDW announced today that they would make millions of fans’ dreams come true by teaming the Dark Knight up with the Heroes in a Half Shell. Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a six-part limited series slated to begin in November, will be written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Freddie E. Williams II. TMNT creator Kevin Eastman and other artists will create variant covers for the series.
In the ongoing power struggle between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, General Krang, and the Foot Clan, allegiances have shifted and the battle lines have been drawn. Krang concocts a plan to rid himself of both the Turtles and Shredder by transporting them to another dimension, where they land in the dark and dangerous streets of Gotham City. It isn’t long before they encounter Gotham’s most famous resident, Batman. The Caped Crusader may be their only hope of overcoming their enemies and getting back home. But not before they encounter a whole cast of Gotham’s most infamous rogues.
