Newest Batman Comic Pays Tribute to 1960s TV Show

Batman is a character known for being dark, gritty comics and movies, but a recent comic series from DC pays tribute to a lighter portrayal of the Caped Crusader.

Batman '66, which will be released in September, will tell new tales based on the 1960s TV series that starred Adam West and Burt Ward. That series was known for its unique style of camp, visuals, camera angles, and sets. The television series remains a cult classic, and is one of the most desired TV-on-DVD releases according to TVShowsonDVD.com.

The first issue of the comic, according to the description, deals with both the Riddler and Catwoman. Future issues promise the return of the Joker and the debut of a 60s-style version of Batman foe Killer Croc.
