Filmmaker and comic-book writer Kevin Smith teams with fellow Bat-fan, comedian and KROQ radio personality Ralph Garman, for a DC Comics/Dynamite Entertainment crossover comic book set in the groovy days of the superheroes’ 1960s TV shows.
Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet launches as a 12-part, digital-first biweekly series beginning May 21,2014 and will debut in comic shops as a print comic on June 4, 2014.
Teaming with artist Ty Templeton, Smith and Garman are treating the story like a missing “lost” sequel to the 1967 Batman two-parter that brought the Hornet and Kato to Gotham City to foil a counterfeit-stamp ring run by the mustachioed, pink-suited villain Colonel Gumm (Roger C. Carmel).
Alex Ross’ painted cover to “Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet” gives new life to the characters from the ’60s shows: clockwise from top, Batman (played by Adam West), Kato (Bruce Lee), Green Hornet (Van Williams) and Robin (Burt Ward).
