SDCC: IDW & DC Announce “Batman/TMNT Adventures” & “Star Trek”/Green Lantern Crossovers

On the heels of the “Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” miniseries, IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment have announced two more crossovers.

Debuting in November, “Batman/TMNT Adventures” will bring together the Dark Knight of the fan-favorite “Batman: The Animated Series” with the Heroes in a Half Shell of Nickelodeon’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” in a story by writer Matthew K. Manning (“Beware the Batman”) and artist Jon Sommariva (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”).

The second is a sequel to 2015’s “Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War.” Written by Mike Johnson and illustrated by Angel Hernandez, the miniseries will see the Enterprise crew cross paths once again with the Green Lantern Corp in a miniseries that promises to introduce “additional cosmic heroes and villains familiar to fans of both series.” It’s expected to launch in winter 2016.

“The previous ‘Star Trek/Green Lantern’ and ‘Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ crossovers were a huge hit with fans of each of the characters,” Hank Kanalz, DC’s senior vice president of Editorial Strategy and Administration, said in a statement. “Bringing these characters back again, and expanding Batman and the Turtles to the realm where they’re most recognized by comic fans and fans of the TV series will make for a great story that any fan can’t wait to read.”
