Batman Loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4

Rating: No change.

It's two in the morning on a Tuesday night and the downstairs neighbors think it's the perfect time to play music. Fuck you, downstairs neighbors. You are inconsiderate pieces of shit. Not that I'm trying to sleep or anything. But I would like to be able to concentrate on writing something funny about Batman hanging out with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Although there really isn't as much to talk about as you might think. When the series was released, fans were probably thinking, "Well, it's about fucking time these characters hung out!" And then after a few issues, fans were probably saying, "I suppose it wasn't that important that they hang out." And now, I'm thinking, "When are they going to stop hanging out already?" Especially when the story boils down to simply doing the things that fans expect out of this meeting. "Oh look! Batman is eating pizza with them!" "Oh hey! Alfred is annoyed with their teenaged antics!" "Oh my! One of them said cowabunga!"

Maybe next issue when all of the villains have been exposed to the Mutant Mutagen, things will get exciting and original! Oh wait! That practically already happened in the first story arc of The New 52's Batman: The Dark Knight!
