    Archie Comics would have to go WAY beyond the beaten path before they could get an even slightly negative review from me. This 3rd Volume in the Archie Meets Batman saga continues to stay true to form. Read Full Review

    This issue marries nostalgia art and episodes feel of the TV episodes beautifully. I go back to being a kid and watching Batman with Adam West and Burt Ward. The writing is absolutely on point for both series as Archie feels just right as well. The art is beautiful and I would swear I wasn't reading a book but watching an episode, waiting so patiently to see what will happen next.Between the writing team and the artists this issue perfectly follows on from the previous two for me and is a joy to read. Dan Parent's art is highly detailed and when paired with inks and colors the meticulous details truly shine. Read Full Review

    A truly charming period piece that's unafraid to bask in its goofiness and remind readers that campiness is cool once more! Read Full Review

    Archie Meets Batman '66 has been a good example of how a comic doesn't need to feel like a world-threatening disaster to deliver an entertaining and exciting read. Read Full Review

    Aside from a few missed opportunities to use the Bat-familys abilities to their fullest, this was a fun ride. Its clear that a collision of opposing forces is soon approaching. The only question left to answer is where? And maybe when. Oh, and how. So, its not that clear. But something is going to happen. I recommend staying tuned for the next issue. Its going to be batty.

    I like this book just fine. I wish I loved it, but it never feels like it's a chore to read. The characters are fun, the art is great, and there's just something that's so likable about the worlds of both Riverdale and the Sixties Gotham that you can't help but have a good time. Here's hoping the story becomes a bit more focused and– dare I say– exciting over the next three issues. Even if it doesn't, though, at least we got to hang out with our pals Batman and Archie.

    There are still some fine moments, including a top-notch pairing of '66 riddles and fisticuffs, as well as some very well written jokes. Yet Archie Meets Batman '66 chooses to live and die by a style crafted over almost a century, and minor flaws in this installment add up in a big way. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 3, 2018

    It's a clever little story, but Parent's art dips into the Uncanny Valley on a regular basis, and the inking doesn't help. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Sep 26, 2018

    This is a fun issue. There's no doubt about it. But the creative team still has to tell a compelling story that moves the plot forward and this issue feels like it wastes the momentum it built up in the previous two issues. Let's hope it recovers next issue. Read Full Review
