A snowstorm in the middle of Summer? Only one person can be responsible for this calamitous cold snap: Mr. Freeze!

    Batman '66 #27 was another great issue.  The story of Mr. Freeze and the motion comic art were both top notch.  Do yourself a favor and pick this one up digitally to truly enjoy it. Read Full Review

    This issue offers a new take on Bane, one that gives the fearsome villain a campy, luchador-inspired makeover. It works surprisingly well, especially with all the nods to previous Bane stories (the cameos by Bird, Trogg and Zombie are an especially neat touch). Read Full Review

    Just a fun issue, from beginning to end. It has everything you'd want from this series: good humor, great throwbacks, and silly cliffhangers and resolutions, while also capitalizing on the different directions and opportunities the creators can take with the comics medium. Plus you get to see Chief O'Hara as a Mariachi musician, which is just incredible. Read Full Review

    Sadly, Batman '66 #27 starts the countdown to issue #30, recently announced to be the series' last. I will miss this lighthearted and nostalgic version of the Caped Crusader, with its fun gadgets and over-the-top writing style. Hopefully, for 1960s Batman fans and younger readers, future "one-shot" episodes (Man from U.N.C.L.E., etc) and special editions willcome along in time. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Sep 23, 2015

    The art in this issue seems a little less reminiscent of Adam West, Frank Gorshin and the gang than previous issues portrayed their '66 counterparts. I realize that may be a silly reason to knock this book but nostalgia is really it's raison d'etre so if it doesn't deliver an authentic experience it isn't really working. I'm going to give this issue a mediocre rating, I've given it more leeway in the past but this issue seems a bit less than what it could be. Read Full Review
