    A wordy installment with strong dialogue and some genuinely creative visuals, this book is fun. Flat-out entertaining, even comforting, every element works to make this both a tongue-in-cheek superhero tale and a pretty credible spy thriller as well. Read Full Review

    The crossover of the century (LAST century) comes to a close in this installment, where our heroes are handily defeated by the villainous Doctor Hugo Strange, and the Men from UNCLE and left without any international criminals to apprehend. hahaha right. this is a ’66 Batman and classic UNCLE story, so this chapter wraps it all up in a nice neat little package! the double-crossers get RE-double-crossed, and that giant squid makes one last, marvelous appearance in the story. things are back to square one with this chapter (without a single shocking gasp being uttered at those words, I’m sure) but the book was actually quite a lot of fun, and it was interesting seeing some of the newly created ’66 Batman characters interacting with Batman and the Men from UNCLE. This was a nice little bit of fluff for a Batman story, but i thoroughly enjoyed it, and i am sure that once it’s fully released in print (and then collected) that the collected edition will go over quite well, as it is an old-school pair of properties that are teamed-up in an unlikely story that will probably be best digested in the more “traditional” format.
