Two villains from Batman's classic Rogues Gallery get the '66 treatment in two separate stories! First, Hilda, aunt of Marsha Queen of Diamonds, messes with forces beyond her control and brings forth Solomon Grundy. Then, when False Face goes looking for a shape-shifting formula, he ends up creating Clayface!

    Either one of these stories would be enough to at least recommend this issue on their own, but together they represent some of the best short-form installments of this series in quite some time. Alternately playing up the comedic and tragic aspects of Batman stories, they do both remarkably well while still staying consistent with the show's tone and themes. Factor in the use of characters who couldn't have easily been used on the budget of the Sixties TV series and the creative introduction of one of Batman's most recognizable villains and you have a story that perfectly demonstrates what this comic is good for: continuing with the spirit of the Adam West and Burt Ward headlined show while showcasing bigger and weirder concepts.

    Parker writes both stories in such a way that they are fluid, go by quickly, and get the point across. There is no fancy language or extraneous one-liners to drizzle on top of an already readable script, and Parker knows it. Bottom line is, if you like Batman ‘66, you’ll appreciate the simplicity and good read of this issue. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Jun 1, 2015

    While there's a lot to praise here, it's hard to fall head over heels for this book. It suffers from the same problems as its source material; Batman '66 is very silly and very shallow. Read Full Review
