Ask any child who came of age in the 1960s who their first small screen hero was, and there’s a good chance the answer is either Adam West or Patrick Macnee. Batman, the classic 1966 series that defined the Caped Crusader for an entire generation, and The Avengers, the British adventure featuring the exquisitely dressed John Steed and his partner Emma Peel, may have been produced on opposite sides of the pond, but they jointly serve as the two reigning examples of sixties-set action.
Holy 1960s-TV crossover! Capitalizing on the past success of the Green Hornet and The Man From U.N.C.L.E crossovers, DC Comics is partnering with BOOM! Studios to pair together two of the hippest shows from the ’60s in the new Digital First comic book miniseries BATMAN ’66 MEETS STEED AND MRS. PEEL.
It’s time to give props to our DC All Access team! Tiffany and Jason are back with an all new episode about…well, props! They sit down with Batman v Superman prop master Doug Harlocker for an exclusive look at Batman’s latest gadgets, the Lasso of Truth and whatever it is Lex Luthor may have hidden up his sleeve. Plus, we round up some of this week’s noteworthy new releases before wrapping up by giving a lucky fan the chance to win an amazing Batman ’66 Batcave LEGO set!
By now, we don’t have to tell you about Batman ’66, our weekly digital first series based on the classic Batman television series. Heck, we may not even have to tell you that the covers for the series are drawn by the one and only Mike Allred. But whether you know all that or not, you’re still going to want to listen up—or rather, look down. That’s where you’ll find the classic, cool cover for the forthcoming BATMAN ’66 #23.
