    This is all sorts of 60s fun and if you love the old shows, you'll love this. And if not, you'll probably at least get a laugh out of the antics. I can't wait for the next issue! I wonder if we'll get any more surprise guest starts? I sure hope so! Read Full Review

    Much like last issue, this is something that no fan of the Adam West era should pass up adding to their collection. It will also do a fair job of holding you over until theBatman '66 DVD set comes out this November. Read Full Review

    This series isn't for everyone - those who hate the original series certainly won't be interested. But for those, like me, who enjoyed the show, this is a fun throwback to the days when heroes could have fun, and grim and gritty was a long way off. Read Full Review

    If you haven't gotten into BATMAN '66 MEETS THE GREEN HORNET, this issue is just as good a starting place as #1. Excitement all the way through. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 3, 2014

    Holy perfectly practiced plot lines, Batman! The second installment of this terrific team-up proves just as entertaining as the first, though by issues end it's readily apparent that nostalgia and familiarity are key to the book's long term appeal. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Jun 5, 2014

    There is a lot to like about this issue, but the brevity is not one of them. Readers may have opened up their digital issues noticing the issue is 100 pages in length, but most of those pages are animations courtesy of the DC2 digital format. Though it has typically added value to the reading experience, the DC2 animations are lazily applied here, save for one exploding door in the early parts of the issue which is very effective. Many of the animations are so subtle that readers will find themselves spending more time looking for the changes than reading the issue. It's a shame something avoidable such as this impedes the reading experience, because otherwise Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet #2 is another finely crafted issue by Smith, Garman and Templeton.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 17, 2014

    We are two issues in and I'm already pretty bored.  I love Ty Templeton's art, but Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman's story hasn't impressed me.  It's just not fun.  I hope it turns around quick or I will just get my Batman '66 fix in the consistently good regular run of the book. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 10, 2014

    Certainly a niche story within an already niche market, Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet #2 continues the fun of the first issue although, even with the introduction of the Joker as a major player going forward in the mini-series, the limitations of the premise are already beginning to show. For fans. Read Full Review

    Anyone that enjoyed these 60's shows will love this comic. It's true to the format and got me chuckling a few times. We are even blessed with the return of the original crossover's villain and he's been revamped to batmazing camp levels i could only dream of.

    A very enjoyable follow up to the first issue, loaded with progression. Something most big 2 books don't seem to be able to handle. Still built on fun, humor and slapstick action. This series is sure to please!
