Batman '66 #13

And I thought I had issues with Dawn Of Justice.

Batman ’66 #13

DC Comics (September, 2014)

“Don’t Change That Bat-Channel!”
WRITER: Gabe Soria
ARTIST: Dean Haspiel
COLORIST: AllenPassalaqua
COVER ART: Michael & Laura Allred
LETTERER: Wes Abbott

A television adaptation of Batman, “The Dark Knight Detective” is the talk of Gotham…and the source of Batman’s discomfort. The Detective wears the cowl, and a three-piece suit who gives his enemies “the Bat-Business”, a bit too violent for this comic. However, the producer has a deadly final episode planned for the Caped Crusaders.

What they got right: I don’t know if this is a parody or commentary on the darker versions of Batman and some people’s preference for it. I also don’t care because watching the Adam West Batman react to a tamer version of a Frank Miller Batman (more “Year One” than “All-Star”) is just funny.

What they got wrong: The art isn’t bad at all but the likenesses to the actors go beyond license issues and look nothing like the actors. Except for Alfred, interestingly enough.

Recommendation: You don’t have to give me the Bat-Business to recommend this comic. It’s just too funny.
