What a wild week it has been! Wednesday saw the release of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 from DC Comics and IDW Publishing. Seriously, this has got to be one of the greatest team-ups ever! This is more important than the time peanut butter met chocolate. More significant than Scooby-Doo and his friends working with the Harlem Globetrotters. I dare say, this is even bigger than a dream match-up with Starsky & Hutch double-dating with Laverne & Shirley.
The Worst. Comic. Podcast EVER! was thrilled to be able to sit down and talk with Batman/TMNT artist Freddie Williams II to discuss what went into bringing this book to the store shelves; his collaboration with colorist Jeremy Colwell in the digital environment to create a unique look for the book; and the thrill of bringing James Tynion IV’s script to life. We also talk about our history with the TMNT, going back to the black & white comic from the 1980s. The only thing that could have made this interview better would be to have some cheese pizza with our conversation.
We also take a look at Freddie’s other ongoing project, Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantam with writer Marc Guggenheim for Legendary. IAoJQ is a creator-owned project that has been years in the making. Issue #1 was one of our Four Comics I Want picks back in September, and issue #4 just came out this past week. Go back to your LCS and pick up this series!

As always, we are the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!, and we hope you enjoy the show.
