    There's plenty of dark, psychological and thought provoking comics material out there, and DC makes some of the very best. Then we get titles like Young Justice, Teen Titans and Wonder Twins which are just pure entertainment, and huge fun to read. Now we have Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2, which contains all the joy, but combined with the coolest history lesson ever. Don't misunderstand me; I believe that everyone who reads this series will love it, but to an aging comics nerd who loves this medium the way that I do, this title is a wonderful gift.

    I love the entire idea of this series right down to the surprise villain which is a hybrid of two characters fans would probably never see coming. This is such a fun series and another great example of DC continuing to explore fun crossover possibilities with its universe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jun 5, 2019

    Overall, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 is a comic book I think you absolutely must be reading, even if you haven't read the previous two iterations yet.  James Tynion is putting together multiple different universes, and art styles, into a creative blender, then using that for a story that is altogether different, and a unique to close out a trilogy. The entire art team is working in collaboration flawlessly as well, with Williams and Eastman really blowing me away artistically. All in all the third volume in a crossover between two companies properties is shaping up to be my book of the summer. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 5, 2019

    This is the third teaming of in recent years of the two franchises, almost making itan annual event. While I have no objection to doing so, I must wonder how muchlife the idea has in it. Perhaps the Turtles should join another majorcharacter " DC, Marvel or otherwise. After all, if youre going to open thatdoor, open it WIDE! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 6, 2019

    Honestly, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 is one of the most thrilling single issues I've read all year, and this issue alone already justifies Tynion and Williams' third trip to this particular well. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 5, 2019

    A little too much monologuing from Krang as he rides Anti-Monitor around like a bodysuit. Krang's an acquired taste as a villain, and few writers have made him work beyond a campy cartoon villain. But the joy of a crossover is watching new dynamics form across dimensions, and on that front, this is a major win. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Bethany Pope Jun 5, 2019

    A manic shot of ridiculous plot, amalgamated characters, and sly little digs at popular cartoons. This series is an absolute delight, by every measure. Read Full Review

    The nostalgia scored awesome points. Eastman's art inserted into William's panels is the best way to convey the distinction between worlds. While I have misgivings about how Batman is handled, I'm trying to stay positive and look forward to seeing this story in its entirety. Read Full Review

    Batman/TMNT III #2 clears up a lot of the questions from the first issue. Though, Tynion just gave us a new set of things to think about for another month. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Govan Jun 7, 2019

    "Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III" #2 is a wild ride, a thoroughly enjoyable read for the fans. The multiversal shenaningans are great and leaves the reader wanting even more. If we take Raph at his word, the next issue will be even bigger and weirder. I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jun 5, 2019

    What it lacks in depth this issue more than makes up for in sheer entertainment. Tynion and Williams are just leaning right into the crazy idea behind this series, and seeing Eastman contribute his unique aesthetic is an utter delight. The visuals carry the issue more than the writing, but it's still a rollicking good time. Without spoiling anything, this is more of a treat for Turtles fans than Batman fans, but there are some great surprises featuring the Caped Crusader that will surely cause readers of all sort to crack a smile.

    I must be honest, the whole thing of the multiverses and Crisis is the new boom of comics, despite being a very old resource of the editorials now has a new resurgence thanks to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the comparison with this movie is inevitable, but still it is a very interesting comic since the mix of TMNT characters with Gotham villains is very, very original, and as fan of Batman and the Ninja Turtles this comic is a must-read.
