Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 DC IDW

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 DC IDW

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 focuses on the relationship between the Caped Crusader and Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael, the world’s most famous turtles. They’re still trapped in Batman’s universe and face reverting back to their original animal forms if they don’t get home soon.

Meanwhile, in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4, unknown to the heroes their arch-enemy Shredder joins forces with Ra’s Al Ghul. Together they bring in another character from the turtles’ world, and with him comes more bad news for Gotham City.

Batman has more to do in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4, including sparring with Leonardo, who can hold his own against the bat, and bonding with hot-head Raphael. We even see what may be a DC first: Batman eating pizza, much to Alfred’s chagrin. There’s not much action, but the dialogue is fast-paced and the story zips along at an entertaining pace.

In Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4, Freddie E. Williams’s art continues to capture the magic and dynamism of the turtles. The four bothers look great, and sport expressive faces. Batman is drawn in the same style as the turtles, which looks awkward at times but fits the environment of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 should please both turtle and bat fans alike. The story also introduces some new aspects keeping it fresh. And the ending here promises the next issue will be an action-packed romp you will want to read.
