The Riddler's Ruse last edited by mshirley27 on 11/04/19 07:58AM View full history

Put on your go-go boots and get ready to “Batusi” back to the Swingin’ 60s as DC Comics reimagines the classic Batman TV series in comics form for the first time! These all-new stories portray The Caped Crusader, The Boy Wonder and their fiendish rogues gallery just the way viewers remember them. In this first adventure, The Riddler’s out to steal some valuable artwork from under the noses of Gotham’s police. But Batman gets help from an unlikely source: a certain femme fatale dressed in feline finery!

It is what it is. 0

If you don't love the t.v. series you probably won't like this. It's campy, silly, outdated and not Batman as he's known.

The writers and artists cloned the 60's Batman right down to the smallest atom. While perhaps taking the retro throw back a bit far, it brings back great memories of watching the goofy BIFF, POW filled show and is quite comical. While the ...
