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?

i started buying some of the Batman 66 comics just for the great Allred covers, but it turns out it's a really great comic book.
there's a few writers they switch thru on it
I like Jeff Parker best he really nails the tone of the tv series,
this one is kind of over the top on it's own thing, it seems like.
but cool, this looks fun.

i don't know if Kevin Smith has ever written for the regular Batman 66 title,
but looking at this again... it's really a bad example of how great the writing usually is on that book.

it's not so silly and hamfisted with the jokes as what we see in this preview.
it's way better.
