In 1967, television history was made when two masked crime fighters met in a historic crossover. Now, superstar filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor/comedian Ralph Garman join forces with artist Ty Templeton (Batman '66) to bring these two iconic characters and their famous partners together again. Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin, and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm. What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve? This book collects Batman '66/Green Hornet numberd 1-6.
Praise for "Batman '66: " "The campy, cool interpretation of the caped crusader from the ever-popular television show elicits all sorts of emotions from comic book readers: from embarrassment to pure joy.""--Comic Book Resources" "Artist Jonathan Case gets the Riddler's manic energy right and his Batman and Robin are on the money.""--New York Post""Even if you aren't a fan of the classic TV show, you'll have a good time here. It's a blast from start to finish.""--"IGN
In the few years since his entry into the indie film community, Kevin Smith has seen it all--from the surprise critical and commercial success he received for his debut film "Clerks" to the disappointing critical and commercial drubbing he took on his second outing, "Mallrats." He caught a break on his third film, the critically hailed "Chasing Amy," and managed not to get killed by the religious zealots over his fourth film, the comedic meditation "Dogma." Thus not deterred, Smith advanced and has written and directed "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Zach and Miri Make A Porno." He's written comic books featuring not only his own characters ("Clerks" and "Jay and Silent Bob"), but other characters as well--the award-winning "Daredevil" at Marvel Comics, and the award-winning "Green Arrow" at DC comics. And if the film thing doesn't pan out, he does own his own comic-book store--Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, in beautiful downtown Red Bank, New Jersey.
