    What about the fate of the postponed King Tut/Killer Croc story? And what if the temporary John Astin Riddler appeared in a future story?

    Really enjoyed the lead story of 66 #2 with PENGUIN and Mr. FREEZE.
    Beautiful art by Ty Templeton. Wish he was the main artist.

    2nd story was somewhat dull and the art did nothing for me.
    Although there was a couple of interesting cameoes.

    I would like to see 66 Batman team up with 70's tv show Wonder Woman and 70's live action two ep.Legends of Superheroes in the future.

    Maybe DC should release a Wonder Woman 1970's comic book series in the future.

    I only had one nit-pick, and that was how Chandell was drawn. Blondish hair, not dark. I guess they couldn't get Liberace's likeness, and the closest they got was an analogue for Michael Douglas in that HBO movie on Liberace. Meh. Ty Templeton hit one out of the yard with Penguin/Freeze. Next issue is out this week, I believe.

    Enjoying the comic so far myself, and as usual I hope that sales do well enough to convince DC to be more willing to do some other comics that are lighthearted and fun (out of continuity or mainstream).

    Sales of Batman could possibly help in that regard. Incidentally, I'm hoping Marvel might do a revival for The Incredible Hulk with Kenneth Johnson involved (working the unused scripts for the comic and maybe ending it with David Banner's story resolved).

    Aside from TY, the art of this series has not been to my liking.
    The art has been bland and unexciting to me. Characters look nothing like their TV counterparts in most stories.
    I understand there are rights issues involve but I would think the artist could get a bit closer to the mark then what we have seen.

    The Covers by the Allreds have been FABS.
    Not sure why but I have always like covers that have a Big Figure towering over a city and looming large over
    his/her enemies.

    The Mad Hatter literally lives up to his name this month.

    BATMAN '66 #4

    [​IMG]

    WRITER: Jeff Parker
    ARTIST: Jonathan Case

    Batman and Robin head to 1960s London to take on The Mad Hatter! When the Caped Crusader hears that hats are being stolen from England’s famous Beefeaters, he knows it can only be the work of Jervis Tetch. But something’s also amiss at Big Ben. Could the Clock King be up to his old tricks?

    I noticed in a preview soliication in PREVIEWS for Batman 66 issue 7 the main villain will be FALSE FACE, is he related to TWO FACE or not? Heck, I'm still waiting for when DC will ever reschedule the on the backburner Batman 66 issue plans for the postponed King Tut/1966 Killer Croc issue originally planned for print issue #2!

    No, he was a very minor "master of disguise" character in the comics, but he's mostly known as a character from the show. One of the creepier ones, he appeared in one storyline and apparently he was never brought back because the mask scared kids.

    False Face (Malachi Throne) - Batman Wiki

    Two-Face himself was considered for the show, but nixed because his origin was too violent.

    No. Falseface was a made-for-TV villain, played by the late Malachi Throne (and ID'd as ? in part 1). As for the King Tut/Croc issue, there might be some issues unresolved preventing that issue from being printed.

    What issues unresolved? Involving the 1966 Killer Croc or the 1966 King Tut?

    Yeah, such as licensing rights for the use of Victor Buono's likeness as Tut. Croc's not a problem.
