Batman ’66 continues to be a property that everyone wants to get their hands on. The latest appearance by the dynamic duo will happen in July when the Dynamic Duo swings into Riverdale.
The six-issue mini-series will be written by Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci, with art by penciler Dan Parent, inker J. Bone, and colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick.
“We considered many different combinations for this next pairing between DC Universe and Archie characters, and Batman ’66 and Archie Andrews really stood out as the perfect choice,” said Hank Kanalz, DC SVP of Editorial Strategy and Administration. “What DC and Archie started with HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICA last year continues with this off-the-wall pairing of Archie and The Caped Crusader; we believe fans of the classic TV shows and their modern interpretations will be excited about this new series.”
This series could be a blast, as the Joker and Jughead see who can outdo the other, and I’m sure many will wonder whether Robin will pick Betty or Veronica, or if he still has eyes for Barbara Gordon.
The action and intrigue of ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN ’66 begins when a team of Gotham’s most notorious villains decide they need a new base of operations, one with a resident millionaire and fewer superheroes to stop them. Their plan doesn’t go unnoticed for long, and soon enough, Riverdale High has a couple new transfer students: Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon!
Archie Meets Batman ’66 #1 arrives in stores on July 18, 2018.
Who is excited about this news? I know we’ll be checking out the action in July!
