    It took a few days, but DC Entertainment has confirmed for The World's Finest that the Beware The Batman comic book has indeed been cancelled. Details can be found at The World's Finest.

    It's nice to see DC Comics cranking out collections for the first Batman Adventures comic and Superman Adventures and I hope they keep it up. While I have the majority of these comics in single issue form, I am missing some issues of JLU, and I hope DC continues to release each series bit by bit. I really hope Batman Adventures, the one done by Dan Slott, gets the entire book collected. That comic is such an underappreciated gem. I hope DC gets around to releasing the Gotham Girls mini-series too.

    Yeah I'm really happy they're releasing them too. I have never gotten a chance to read them before, but I got volume 1 of the Batman one and it was great. I need to get volume 2 sometime.

    Batman: The Animated Series will crossover with the current animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series in the forthcoming Ninja Turtles: Batman/TMNT Adventures, to be co-published by IDW and DC Comics. Details are in the highlighted segment of the press release below. Click on the image below for a closer look.

    [​IMG]

    IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment will continue their successful editorial mash-ups and bring fans two new comic book crossovers based on some of their most popular properties, including a sequel to the smash-hit co-publishing venture Star Trek/Green Lantern and an all new crossover with animation-inspired versions of Batman and Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    “We’re very happy to extend our ongoing relationship with DC with these iconic characters in new storylines,” says Greg Goldstein, President and COO of IDW Publishing. “Fans who enjoyed the previous series will enjoy the fun, new adventures we have in store for these upcoming titles.”

    Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise will once again cross paths with the Green Lantern Corps in a sequel to last year’s Star Trek/Green Lantern series. The creative team of Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez will reteam for another epic space opera, this one picking up the new status quo where it left off and introducing additional cosmic heroes and villains familiar to fans of both series. This series is slated for a winter 2016 launch.

    Following the recent success of Batman/TMNT, IDW, DC, and Nickelodeon are also happy to announce another pairing between the Caped Crusader and the Ninja Turtles: Batman/TMNT Adventures, coming this November. Based on the animated versions of both series, this storyline for fans of all ages will bring the Dark Knight of the beloved Batman: The Animated Series in contact with Nickelodeon’s animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The dynamic duo of writer Matthew K. Manning (Beware the Batman) and artist Jon Sommariva (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amazing Adventures) will team on the series.

    “The previous Star Trek/Green Lantern and Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossovers were a huge hit with fans of each of the characters,” said Hank Kanalz, DC SVP of Editorial Strategy and Administration. “Bringing these characters back again, and expanding Batman and the Turtles to the realm where they’re most recognized by comic fans and fans of the TV series will make for a great story that any fan can’t wait to read.”

    “It’s always a blast to pair up beloved characters in comic series, and our recent pairings with DC have been especially satisfying on a creative level and in regards to fan satisfaction, too,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer. “Being able to bring Ciro Nieli’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the amazing animated Gotham envisioned by Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski is a major bonus.”

    Stay tuned for more upcoming news regarding these massively popular pairings from two of today’s most premier comic book publishers.

    Wow. Might be interesting to compare this against that other Batman / TMNT crossover that's been out. It's always nice to have the BTAS style back, will definitely get on board for this one day one.

    Surely I'm not the only one excited over this?

    DCAU Batman is BACK!! (Excluding that Batman Beyond tease)

    This looks wonderful. With the success of Batman '66 and some of DC's other digital comics, I'm amazed they haven't given Batman Adventures a relaunch. With B:TAS celebrating it's 25th anniversary next year, it might be worth considering.

    Hmmm... I like that they appear to be using the BTAS design instead of TNBA.

    Those are some ugly, ugly covers.

    Hopefully this will lead to a revamp of The Batman Adventures, as mentioned above, so I will be giving this a shot.

    Doesn't B:TAS' Gotham City occupy the physical location of New York City? Are we traveling between parallel worlds in this?

    9/21: 1) I believe so. I think it was "Avatar" that solidified that.

    2) Probably that's the case.

    10/17: Per the January solicits, Justice League: Gods and Monsters will finally be in trade paperback form and is set for February 8 at $19.99 msrp.

    10/19: BTAS/TMNT #3
    10/25: Before BTAS/TMNT #1 is even published, it's going to second printing to be released November 23.

    11/5: Here's a preview of Batman/TMNT Adventures #1.
