DC Cancels Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Omnibus For Now

In March, Bleeding Cool ran the news that DC Comics would be publishing an Omnibus of all the James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series in one big omnibus before the end of the year and it was solicited by DC Comics a few months ago. But Bleeding Cool has reported on many issues hitting the comic book publishing industry right now, including a lack of paper, and shipping delays for the bigger and bulkier comic books coming through the system.

As a result, DC Comics has announced that they have cancelled the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Omnibus – for now at least. It will be resolicited later, hopefully for 2022. Other big books being cancelled for now is Batman: The Dark Knight Detective Vol. 6 and Aquaman 80 Years Deluxe Edition.

Maybe the delay will also allow DC Comics to fix the cover designs to Dark Knight Detective? Here's what would have been… and may be again sometime soon.
