I have realized that I really have a thing for crossovers. When done right, the creative teams take the best of both franchises and mix them together in a delicious gumbo that may not be as tasty as the usual dish, but is special because it’s different. I don’t know if that really gets my point across, but it’s making me hungry, so when I get back from eating we will continue. Two Hours Later…Okay, now I’m ready to continue. Where were we? Oh yea, crossovers. I love them and while a Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles book seemed like an odd choice when I first heard about it, I have really enjoyed it. DC Comics and IDW succeeded in drawing me in with Batman and turned me into a TMNT fan along the way. If that’s not a great business plan, I don’t know what is. Of course, none of that matters if the series doesn’t continue kicking ass every issue and that’s what leads me to my review of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4.
