DC has announced that it will be expanding its digital-firsts series with the launch of Batman '66, a comic based on the Adam West-fronted TV show.


Batman '66 is written by Jeff Parker with art by Jonathan Case, with Michael Allred providing the cover for the first issue.

“The juxtaposition of offering a retro Batman ’66 comic as a current and modern digital first title is fun,” DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson said in a statement.

“DC Entertainment is the most prolific producer of digital first comics and, as we work to create new and compelling content, this is a great way to also preserve the legacy of our characters. It’s exciting to roll out the new Batman ’66 comic as part of this bigger initiative with our Warner Bros Consumer Product partners.”
