BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II

DC Entertainment and IDW Publishing have announced a December launch for Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II, a six-issue follow up to the crossover series of 2015. Writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie Williams II will reunite for this second meeting of two icons of pop culture.

"What DC and IDW started with Batman/TMNT in 2015 continues to spark interest with fans of these characters that have worldwide recognition," said DC SVP Editorial Strategy & Administration, Hank Kanalz. "We can't wait to see what James and Freddie deliver this time around."

Here's how the new series is described:

"When Donatello goes looking for a new mentor to help him improve his fighting skills, he opens a doorway to another reality, hoping to summon the Turtles' one-time ally, Batman. But instead, he gets sent to Gotham City and someone else comes through the open portal -- Bane! Suddenly, there's a new gang boss in New York and he's out to unite all the other bad guys under him. Can Donnie get back in time and bring Batman with him to help his brothers before Bane causes irreparable destruction?"

The first two issues will release in December before going monthly. Issue #1 hits comics retailers and digital outlets on Dec. 6, with #2 following two weeks later on Dec. 20.

In addition to covers by Williams, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman will illustrate variant covers for the series.

TITAN COMICS' STATIX PRESS IMPRINT

Titan Comics has announced a new international imprint: Statix Press. The new line will "showcase the best comics from Europe and around the globe."

Titles kicking off the Statix Press line are: Doctor Radar, The Beautiful Death, Hercules: Wrath of the Heavens and Under: Scourge of the Sewer.

Hitting stores Nov. 22, 2017, Doctor Radar is set in Paris during the roaring 1920's, and sees a gentleman detective investigate a series of horrific deaths, all the while playing a deadly game with a mysterious criminal mastermind known only as Doctor Radar. Written by Noel Simsolo with art by Bézían, Doctor Radar Issue #1 comes with a cover by Francesco Francavilla.

The Beautiful Death, a post-apocalyptic, coming-of-age mini-series, written and illustrated by Mathieu Bablet (Shangri-La), asks the question - what does resistance mean when there's nothing left to fight for? That's what Wayne, Jeremiah, and Soham, the only survivors of a devastating alien invasion, struggle with – seeking a future that justifies their presence on a ruined world. Issue #1 arrives September 2017 and debuts with a special cover by iconic comic book creator Brandon Graham (Island, King City, G.I. Joe, Multiple Warheads)!

A bold new take of the Twelve Labors of Hercules, Hercules: Wrath of the Heavens by JDMorvan and Looky is a stunningly illustrated science fiction re-telling of the legend of Hercules, which debuted in August 2017. As war rages across the galactic frontier, Hercules - half-human, half-god super-soldier - faces his greatest enemy – his own demons – in a bid for truth and redemption. Issue #2 is due to hit comic stores in mid-September.

On Dec. 13, classic B-movie horror comes to comic book stores with Under: Scourge of the Sewer! In the series -- written by Christophe Bec with art by Stefano Raffaele and a cover by James Stokoe -- some people bury their secrets underground. In Megalopolis, the filth flows into the sewers. Disgraced Lt. Wilson Jericho will soon discover something monstrous will be crawling out of the sewers to rip the city apar.

Statix Press will also showcase Titan's back catalogue of translated comics from a variety of genres including superhero with The Chimera Brigade and Masked plus fantasy/science-fiction with Khaal, and World War X, alongside the dark comedy series Norman!

"Growing up in Australia, I was exposed to comics from all over, and I've tried to maintain that breadth of reading into adult life. It's why I enjoy my annual pilgrimage to Angouleme, and why I'm always on the lookout for something new," said Titan Comics brand manager Chris Thompson. "With our Statix Press line, we hope to continue Titan's rich history of publishing essential classics like Bilal, Jodorowsky and Druillet, while introducing English-speaking audiences to fresh new creators and titles from around the world."
