The tone is balanced so that the crossover works for readers of all ages. You won't find Miller's grim Dark Knight breaking skulls with the original (all-red) turtles, but you also won't find Ninja Turtles 3/Adam West (or Joel Shumacher, lol) levels of camp here either. The writers did a good job of playing the two crime-fighting families off of one-another without doing a disservice to either.
The book is also just the right length for this kind of story, neither ending too quickly nor outstaying its welcome.
In short, this GN is every bit as fun and awesome as you hope it is. Don't second-guess yourself, just buy it.
This collected edition includes the six-issue miniseries. The story revolves around the 1990’s Batman: The Animated Series Batman and the newer TMNT CG animated series turtles meeting up. Without spoiling anything, the plot revolves around “the World’s Greatest Detective” investigating the disappearance of inmates from Arkham. He discovers they escaped into New York City via an inter-dimensional portal developed by the Kraang. The Bat Family enters “the Big Apple” in search for the villains, only to find out they have been in association with the TMNT’s villains. Together, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donnotello, Raphael, Batman, Robin, and Batgirl work to establish a secure connection between the portals and to return their respective villains.
The writing really does feel like something straight out of these cartoons. The characters have the same dynamic with each other and seeing these two teams interact felt pretty natural for the most part, but like another episode of the cartoon. I enjoy both of these cartoons a great deal, as would anyone else who laid their eyes upon them, so it’s safe to say if you enjoy Batman: the Animated series, TMNT (2012), or both, you’ll enjoy this one. The art feels the same in the sense that it’s like a cartoon. There’s really no wacky look of anything in here. I’m out of complaints for writing and art here. There’s also a design gallery in the back dedicated to variant covers and I know some people complain because they take up part of the book, but it was one of the highlights, getting to see some really nice work from other artists.
This was in mint condition when it arrived in the mail in addition to a couple other stories. It came just like picking it up in person, at a store. I’m not often really worried when it comes to what the condition of the books, but nothing negative in this review.
Considering the success in the different fields for this book and how it manages to be riveting in story, with a mostly natural interaction between the Bat Family and the Turtles, I can’t complain, with the writing and design that helps capture the feel and dynamic of these shows. I’d certainly say this is worth the time and the cost for ths read.
