    What can be said about a comic like this that is so excellently put together from such a fantastic team? Words like astounding, mind-blowing, cool, and fabulous come to mind. This Archie/DC is the sort of thing that makes throwback projects like this enjoyable for veteran comics lovers, new fans, or just the average person on the street. Another home run hit and worth picking up to be sure. Read Full Review

    Things are heating up and by that I mean I am having a lot of fun with this series.  The best part?  Things are about to get even more fun as the two properties collide head-on from here on out.  If you are looking for a fun, quick all-ages read with outstanding art, look no further!

    This is a fun burst of nostalgia and so far the meeting of the two different worlds is an almost seamless affair. Fun! Read Full Review

    This Archie-published crossover still doesn't quite live up to its name with its second issue " the main characters are mostly separate, and the crossover does begin, but not with the title characters yet. Still, it's a fun, engaging comic that pays tribute to the classic versions of both franchises with a plot that manages to be light and silly while still having real stakes Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 21, 2018

    With help still on its way, Archie and the gang try to figure out what has happened to all the adults in town who are acting out of character (it seems the Siren has swayed their minds and hearts, but her powers prove to be inadequate over the teen population). Hmmm, sounds like a convenient way for Archie and company to help save the day. I'll be curious to see where things go from here. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Aug 16, 2018

    Nice in the best possible way, Archie Meets Batman '66 is plenty of fun. The plot may be taking a while to get anywhere, as the issue is more a collection of entertaining scenes than a solid narrative, but pretty much all of those scenes are fun to read. As a fan of Batman, I do wish he had a bit more to do, but as a relative newbie to the world of Riverdale, I'm appreciating the opportunity to get to know characters I only have a passing familiarity with. It's a bright, colorful, and funny meeting between two beloved properties, which is exactly what it needs to be. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Aug 16, 2018

    It was nice to see the development of characters in Riverdale, and the injection of Dick and Barbara. If it is a compensation for the amount of time spent on Batman in the last issue, I can be understanding as long as the next issue gives Archie and Batman equal time. Other readers, might not be so forgiving. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Dan Chruscinski Aug 15, 2018

    Some stumbles with the handling of Batman and the overarching storyline makes this issue a bit weaker than the first. The panel to panel keeps you engaged, however, and I hope issue #3 makes some minor course corrections to elevate this series beyond campy fun. Read Full Review

    All of the right elements are still in place, but there's simply not enough of them to maintain momentum here, much less accelerate. Read Full Review
