Shredder and Joker Get Infinity Warped in Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1 Preview

The third Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, launches this week from DC Comics and IDW, and DC has released a preview of the issue. Appropriate for the “Crisis in a Half Shell” story title, the preview opens with red skies above an amalgamation of New York and Gotham City. Writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie Williams II showed off designs for the characters from the series, all of which merge aspects of characters from Batman comics with those of TMNT ones, earlier this month. We previously talked about some of the heroes, but the preview shows The Laughing Man in action.

Who is the Laughing Man? He’s one part Shredder, one part The Joker. In other words, the ultimate villain. Or in other other words: really, there’s a fourth joker now?

Check out the preview below, and look for Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1 in comic shops Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
