It has been announced that DC Comics will be launching a digital-only comic series later this year continuing the adventures of Adam West and Burt Ward’s Batman and Robin.
Called Batman ’66, the comic series will work on a similar structure to the original show, focusing on separate villain each issue, including Riddler, Catwoman, and Joker.
In a press release for the comic, DC Entertainment President, Diane Nelson said;
“The juxtaposition of offering a retro Batman ’66 comic as a current and modern digital first title is fun. DC Entertainment is the most prolific producer of digital first comics and, as we work to create new and compelling content, this is a great way to also preserve the legacy of our characters. It’s exciting to roll out the new Batman ’66 comic as part of this bigger initiative with our Warner Bros Consumer Product partners.”
Batman ’66 will be written by Jeff Parker, with first issue art by Jonathan Case and covers by Mike Allred.
These. Are. Awesome.
