Book Review: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III by James Tynion IV

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


For James Tynion's Third outing of Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we arrive in a strange world where Bruce Wayne has been raised by Splinter along with the Turtles and they fight the Smile Clan which includes Harley Quinn and is led by a ninja version of the Turtles.

Krang is behind this and the Turtles and Batman have to figure out what's going on and how to stop it.

This is the third time that Tynion's returned to this pairing and the result is still pleasing. The plot plays into basic DC Multiverse Crisis stories while also having a bit of a nod to the decades long history of the Ninja Turtles.

These books don't tend to deliver mindblowing plots, but they suceed by making characters from these two different universes connect and delivering fan-pleasing moments and making them work nicely in a narrative rather than just being pointless fan service. This book does that and if you have any affinity for these franchises and want a fun read, this is another winner that's well worth your time.
