I don't want to be an armchair editor here or anything, but you'd think that if you're doing a story where Batman crosses the dimensional barrier from Gotham City to hang out in New York --- specifically the NYC that's home to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles --- you'd have to take a page or two for him to ask questions, right? "Where are all the abandoned warehouses," he asks, scowling, "And why isn't there a single Playing Card And Chemical Factory on the entire island of Manhattan? And why are your sewers so... livable?!"

Or, I suppose, you could focus on the larger story about the Mad Hatter trying to mind control several million people from across dimensions. That works, too, and in this preview from next week's Batman/TMNT Adventures #5, it looks like that's the route Matthew K. Manning, Jon Sommariva, Sean Parsons, Leonardo Ito, and Shawn Lee have decided to take.
