Batman TMNT III #6 was a great ending to an all-around fun series. Yes, there is an overarching theme to the miniseries, like anything else. But it’s still a light message and doesn’t consume the entire story.
This issue definitely had the most action of any in the miniseries. Maybe the most every of all the Batman TMNT crossovers James Tynion IV has written.
All in all, if you haven’t read the full series (why are you reading this review?) pick up the trade when it comes out. Definitely a story anyone can enjoy. And you don’t have to read the other two miniseries to read this one.
(Warning: Serious spoilers ahead for Batman TMNT III #6.)
You may remember from the review of Batman TMNT III #5, I mentioned I wasn’t unsure whether or not Red Hood was wearing the full helmet as opposed to the mask. We got the answer this issue, Full helmet with the new outfit. It’s a great combo. Totally here for it.
Also loved the quick back-and-forth between Red hood and Nightwing this issue. Very brief, but one of the more memorable moments.
As much as Donatello is brilliant in his own right, I very much appreciate the fact he wasn’t even remotely on Batgirl’s level. Very few are smart as her. Donny’s great and not too far off, but he’s not quite there.
Lastly, it’s very rare we see Batman behave like this. Like a human. It’s a nice change of pace.
