This year's Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was one of the most purely fun comics in a good long while. It was the platonic ideal of a crossover, one that played with the pre-existing ideas of invading dimensions that we've already seen in TMNT, and threw them up against Gotham City's arch-criminals until we got to the perfectly logical conclusion of Mr. Freeze being turned into a mutant polar bear. The thing is, James Tynion IV and Freddie E. Williams did so much with that book that I was really left wondering just what they'd do in a sequel.

In retrospect, the answer is obvious: Revive The Batman Adventures, the jaw-droppingly good tie-in to Batman: The Animated Seriesand mash it up with the TMNT's own current cartoon universe to see what happens. It looks amazing, and we're revealing the covers and solicitation for the second issue below!
