In Batman’s long history of crime fighting he has gone up against a large assortment of foes. Casual street thugs, maniacs, super powered villains, and even heroes, that’s how Batman rolls.
In 2015, we saw Batman challenge a new type of foe. Four giant hard-shelled ninjas with a thirst for pizza and Christmas songs. That’s right!
DC comics and IDW crossed paths for a 6 issue miniseries, written by James Tynion IV and drawn by Freddie Williams II, that saw Batman go up against the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. After being transported to Gotham City by Krang, the Turtles eventually team up with Batman and battle a bunch of the Caped Crusader’s most infamous villains and Shredder in an attempt to return home.
