The origin of Batman…together with the origin of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The stories are familiar, but through the prism of this altered reality, clearly not the same. An uneasy feeling sets in that everything is not what it seems. But the Laughing Man pays a visit to a familiar Turtles ally to make sure this world stays exactly as Krang has remade it.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Aero #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Aero #1 (Marvel) – The character gets her own series with an English translation of her origin and an all-new tale. Great to see this creation become more accessible.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #3 (DC Comics/IDW Publishing) – The series has been off the wall fun mashing up so much between DC and TMNT. Just sit back and enjoy the fun.

Charlie’s Angels vs. Bionic Woman #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – How has it taken this long for this to happen?

DCeased #3 (DC Comics) – DC doing a zombie story? We had low expectations honestly since the concept has been done so many times before but this series has pleasantly surprised us so far.

Lois Lane #1 (DC Comics) – Lois gets her own series! In an age where journalists are “the enemy,” we’re expecting a lot from this series.

Ignited #2 (Humanoids/H1) – The first issue is fantastic. It’s a world where students seem to be getting powers set in the aftermath of a school shooting. An interesting concept that we want to learn more about.

No One Left to Fight #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – An anime/manga inspired series from Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio about what happens when the hero grows older and there’s just no one left to fight.

Postal: Deliverance #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The new story arc finds Mark struggling with being the Mayor of Eden. A very underrated series about a town filled with criminals that’s worth checking out, especially with this new arc/starting point.

Sea of Stars #1 (Image Comics) – Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum’s new series about space truckers. The fact Aaron is on board and he can do the amazing long game writing has us excited about this creator-owned series.

Space Bandits #1 (Image Comics/Millarworld) – The new series by Mark Millar with art by Matteo Scalera. It sounds like the heist/betrayal/revenge story but with Millar’s backing by Netflix, this one is a series to watch.

Spencer and Locke 2 #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume wraps up with a bang. If you haven’t been reading this twisted tale, you’ve been missing out. It’s all revealed here and has us hoping for more.

Star Wars: Target Vader #1 (Marvel) – Bounty hunters go after Vader and the concept sounds too awesome to not read.

Test #1 (Vault Comics) – From Christopher Sebela and Jen Hickman, this series is a weird story about the need for liberation and technology.

Thumbs #2 (Image Comics) – The story about technology, revolution, and the government is right up our way and we’re enjoying the hell out of it.

The Walking Dead #193 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – Sounds like this’ll be a big issue! What the hell is going on? We’ll find out Wednesday.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 (DC Comics) – If you’ve seen our review of the first issue, you know why this is on the list. Just so much fun and out there ideas. Can’t wait to see where this goes.

Black Cat #1 (Marvel) – She’s had a lot on her plate in recent years taking a bigger role in Marvel’s criminal underground. We want to see what she does in a solo series and where they take her character now.

DCeased #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue had a nice zombie/horror vibe to it, though we’ve seen a lot of what was inside before. But, it hit the right beats and we want to see how it differentiates itself.

Rust Belt (Secret Acres) – A look at the underemployed, the working poor, the dreamers of America’s post-industrial cities.

Thumbs #1 (Image Comics) – Tech-obsessed teens are directed to take on the government from the creative team of The Few. Yeah, we’re in.

Review: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1

Our heroes have battled the evil of the Foot Clan in Gotham City and Bane in New York, but now Krang has gotten his hands on the most dangerous technologies in the DC Universe-and no universe is safe from his wrath!

What the what!?

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1 kicks off the third, and final, volume of the crossover event between Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Each previous volume has been fun bring elements of the two series together in a way that’s hard to not enjoy. This third volume… is something completely different.

Writer James Tynion IV delivers a first issue that feels like an Elseworlds story. The two worlds of these characters have been fused delivering characters and new looks for classic characters that bring so many different elements together. It’s a bit of a headscratcher to start but as the story goes on it becomes clearer what’s happening.

Then you get to the end. And. HOLY. CRAP.

What starts as an issue that’s entertaining and feels a bit Elseworlds changes into something completely different evoking classic DC stories.

Tynion is helped by the art team of Freddie E. Williams II, Kevin Eastman, colorist Jeremy Colwell, and letterer Tom Napolitano. The character and world design is key for this issue. Every small detail gives clues as to what’s going on. The mash-ups of characters are amazing and fun. It reminds me at times of the various lines of TMNT figures where the characters were some theme. There’s clearly so much though put into this issue beyond just having these two properties team up and fight each other’s rogues. Eastman’s contribution in particular is beyond inspired.

The issue is probably not on enough people’s radars and that’s there loss as this looks like it is taking some great elements from DC and just rolling with it and having fun. This may be the start of one of the most fun comic crossovers in a while.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1 (DC Comics) – The first two volumes that brough together Batman and the Turtles were tons of fun and we’re excited to see where this new volume goes and what new adventures they can come up with.

Copra Vol. 1/Copra Vol. 3/Copra Vol. 5 (Image Comics) Copra is now with Image Comics and with new printings, it’ll be easier than ever to get a copy to check out. The series is an indie take on superhero comics and so worth it.

DCeased #1 (DC Comics) – This sounds like DC’s version of Marvel’s popular zombie stories and we’re good with that.

DC’s Year of the Villain #1 (DC Comics) – This is going to be an important issue as it sounds like it’ll set up the next year of DC Comics.

Descendent #1 (AfterShock) – A new series that revolves around secret government conspiracies, ancient cults, government corruption and the kidnapped son of a Senator. We’re in.

Fallen World #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – A new trip to the future of the Valiant universe focusing on Rai and Bloodshot. Valiant always delivers and this is no exception.

Five Years #1 (Abstract Studios) – Weaving many of the strands of the “Terryverse” into one epic saga we’re there for any series by Terry Moore.

Hashtag Danger #1 (AHOY Comics) – A dysfunctional scientific team taking on lost civilizations and supernatural threats. Sound familiar? AHOY is an amazing publisher having fun with comic tropes and have delivered with every issue and series. Plus you get tons of extras!

Spencer and Locke 2 #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume of the twisted take on Calvin and Hobbes set in Sin City expands the homage as they take on a familiar enemy who’s a bit like Beetle Baily.

Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale (DC Comics/DC Ink) – We’re here to support this initiative of graphic novels aimed at younger readers! Check it out on Free Comic Book Day too!

War of the Realms #3 (Marvel) – Marvel’s event has been epic but uneven but we want to see what’s next in a pass the popcorn and turn off our brain sort of way.

The Wrong Earth Vol. 1 (AHOY Comics) – If you missed this series, you have no excuse now. It’s a spoof, homage, and love letter to superhero comics, especially Batman.
