    Breezy, silly, and just plain fun, there are enough jokes and gags here that if half had landed it would have been a success, but the fact that it's consistently funny makes this issue a pure delight. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 24, 2014

    King Tut seems to be a favorite of the Jeff Parker and other writers and artists as the villain makes yet another appearance in the comics while several other classic characters have seen far less attention. Much like his previous appearances, the standard set-up applies as Batman and Robin outwit the deranged pharaoh and conveniently knock the man on the head leading to him recovering his wits once again (almost as conveniently as the original hit which transformed him back into Tut at the beginning of the comic). The zombie plague is a bit bizarre, but Parker has fun with the concept having the mindless citizens bury the Dynamic Duo alive leading to their triumphant resurrection in time to foil the villain's plans once more. For fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 28, 2013

    Batman '66 #17 was a disappointment.  The Bookworm may be a weak villain, but that doesn't mean he has to have a weak story to match.  Worse yet, the book was not much fun.  It seemed to be mocking the beloved source material instead of celebrating it.  Not recommended at all. Read Full Review
