It looks like IDW Publishing and DC Comics aren’t finished giving us some great crossover stories as they’ve just announced two more! So get ready for more Turtle Power to mix it up with the Dark Knight and the GL Corps to boldly go where no man has gone before…kinda.
“We’re very happy to extend our ongoing relationship with DC with these iconic characters in new storylines,” says Greg Goldstein, President and COO of IDW Publishing. “Fans who enjoyed the previous series will enjoy the fun, new adventures we have in store for these upcoming titles.”
The first Batman/TMNT crossover has recently ended and for those that wanted more it looks like it’s coming! Though in a slightly different way as this mini series is titled Batman/TMNT Adventures! This will bring together Batman from his most popular animated series along with Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The creative team behind this one will be writer Matthew K. Manning and artist Jon Sommariva.
The creative team of Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez that brought you Star Trek/Green Lantern: Spectrum War return with a sequel. It also looks like we’ll be getting more cosmic characters from both sides in this new story which is scheduled for a winter release.
“The previous Star Trek/Green Lantern and Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossovers were a huge hit with fans of each of the characters,” said Hank Kanalz, DC SVP of Editorial Strategy and Administration. “Bringing these characters back again, and expanding Batman and the Turtles to the realm where they’re most recognized by comic fans and fans of the TV series will make for a great story that any fan can’t wait to read.”
“It’s always a blast to pair up beloved characters in comic series, and our recent pairings with DC have been especially satisfying on a creative level and in regards to fan satisfaction, too,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer. “Being able to bring Ciro Nieli’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the amazing animated Gotham envisioned by Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski is a major bonus.”
