    In this case, the Batman characters are in the Turtle universe, but it is clear that both franchises are equal partners. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Feb 16, 2017

    A thrill ride from start to finish, Batman/TMNT Adventures has truly found solid footing. Each month the creative team surprises me with the increasing quality of the character work and sheer entertainment of the story, and this is no exception. With some great laughs, compelling storytelling, and surprising cameos, this is the best installment yet. Let's everyone buy this so that maybe, someday, we can get more animated-style Batman comics. The world needs it now more than ever. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 18, 2017

    In short, this book is a winner all around, even overcoming the middle-of-the-miniseries blues and delivering an action-packed, ninja-kicking adventures of some of our favorite cartoon stars. Now that DC has realized that there's no shame in admitting that more than one take on their iconic characters can be valid at once, they've tapped into some wonderful stories that otherwise might never be told.

    next to issue #1 this has to have been my favorite issue of the mini-series yet!!!
    aside from an absolutely beautiful cover and gorgeous art inside, SO many awesome things happen!

    Joker having subdued Shredder with Joker-toxin and taken over the over the Foot Clan.
    Harley Quinn's Hyenas getting mutated.
    the Foot-bot soldiers being made-up with creepy Joker-grins.
    one of the most awesome things in this issue was Scarecrow and his fear-toxin.
    the hallucinations the heroes see are quite horrific even for a kid's book!!! ...BRAVO!!!

    this issue reinforces my satisfaction of hopping aboard with this mini.
    i really hope the quality of the next two issues keeps up as high as this one.

    as for the next issue, i'm really excited for the next Batman rogue teased at the cliffhanger.
    sure this series is very 'kiddie' and immature at parts, but i'm kind of liking the pacing of the plot and interaction with heroes and villains in this Batman/Tmnt cross-over than the last one.
    the first cross-over was great, but it felt like way too much set up.
    this one gets right to the nitty gritty!

    Overall this series has been a very fun read. The story is straight forward and simple but with it being a mash up of the Batman and TMNT cartoons that isn't a bad thing at all. This issue had a great mix of Batman & TMNT villains. The artwork is fantastic in its cartoony style and the humor is on point even laughed out loud in a few places!
