    The scheme bringing the protagonists of Gotham City and Riverdale is finally unveiled and it's very bit as colorful and fun as what fans of the classic Batman '66 series might expect. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Oct 31, 2018

    Archie Meets Batman '66 is a book you go into expecting a good time, and that's exactly what you get. The writing is light and funny, the visuals are bright and engaging, and the lettering ramps up the campiness to make it feel like an episode of Batman jumped off the screen and onto the page. It's not remarkably deep, but it's consistently entertaining, and the creators are clearly having a good time. It's not a book that aims to change the medium, nor does it need to strive for that goal; this is exactly what you would think a Batman and Archie crossover would be, and that's precisely why it works.

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Nov 2, 2018

    I love the concept of this crossover, but there are simply so many characters to write that it's difficult for Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci to give any of the characters any justice. Archie and the gang have been relagated to the role of, at worst, victims, and at best, observers. I'm hoping at some point soon Archie becomes a little bit more the good-hearted hero I grew up with. And maybe that will still happen. In fact, I'd be giddy if things required the presense of Pureheart the Powerful and Super Teen (although no doubt in costume only). I've hung with it this long, so I'll finish the ride, but please, let's get something happening for the Riverdale side of the story. Read Full Review

    This pleasant issue pushes the plot forward, but sidelines half of the crossover in the process. Read Full Review

    The series continues to be fun, campy, yet wickedly clever at the same time. Parker and Moreci are juggling a massive cast and that is no easy feat to pull off.
