    That is False.
    False-Face made his first appearance in the comics, BATMAN #113 1958.

    False Face - Batman Wiki

    Later on he made an appearance in a B:TB&TB opener, expose to be a thief by Batman and Detective Chimp. ;)

    Seeing as how I've never seen that particular issue----and it was before my time-----I was under the assumption that Falseface was not a comics villain.

    What in the world is this? Revolving walls? Hidden rooms? Disguises? What is Barbara Gordon's Secret?

    Are the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder asleep on the job? No, they are under the spell of that sinister somnambulist, the Sandman. (No, not THAT one!) Is it bedtime for all of Gotham City? Will the Dynamic Duo wake up in time to put out his lights? Don't miss this issue's story illustrated by 2013 Eisner Award-winner Colleen Coover!

    I learned that Batman '66 print issue #8 due in Feb. 2014 will be the long awaited (postponed from Batman '66 print issue #2) King Tut/Killer Croc 1966 issue.

    Picked up issue 5 yesterday.

    Sandman looks nothing like Michael Rennie, suggesting that they couldn't obtain Rennie's likeness. Same thing with the Eartha Kitt Catwoman in the backup. On that score, meh. Sandman looks even more menacing than the gentleman crook that Rennie was on TV. Looks more like an evil version of Neil Gaiman's version of Sandman, actually. Decent story, and in terms of mainstream continuity, Sandman in this case would be a sub for Dr. Destiny, who had a similar dream gimmick to the one employed in the lead story.

    @dth1971: The solicits for issue 8 mention Tut, but not Killer Croc, so unless the Croc backup story is being held for a later issue, we'll have to wait & see.

    You don't need to be a bookworm to see the brilliance of Batman '66.

    BATMAN '66 #6

    [​IMG]

    WRITER: Jeff Parker, Tom Peyer
    ARTIST: Ty Templeton

    Guest writer Tom Peyer unleashes the Bookworm on the Dynamic Duo! At first, it appears that he’s only made a public display of stealing a giant, worthless check. But it’s actually a front for a more nefarious plot to uncover all of Batman’s secrets! And then get ready for Olga, Queen of the Cossacks.

    Will we get to see what False Face REALLY looks like?

    BATMAN '66 #7

    [​IMG]

    WRITER: JEFF PARKER, TOM PEYER
    ARTIST: CHRISTOPHER JONES, DEREC DONOVAN

    Horrors! Bruce Wayne is trying to scam a jewelry store and put the blame on poor Aunt Harriet? Or could it actually be the work of that mysterious master of disguises, False Face? Then, find out how crime really pays when the Clown Prince of Crime tries to downsize his mob in “The Joker’s Layoff Riot.”

    Those variant covers are pretty cool. I like it when comic companies do things like that.

    Regarding Batman '66 print issue #8: Was the second story with Shame originally planned for Batman '66 print issue #9 but pushed a print issue earlier to this current print issue? Maybe Batman '66 print issue #9 slated for next month might have that long awaited '66 Killer Croc story postponed from Batman '66 print issue #2.

    Well... technically Croc did appear, but just as his normal identity Waylon Jones, working for Tut as a hired thug. The story basically explained his transformation :).

    Hmmm. I'm hoping they weren't counting this as Killer Croc when they first solicited the issue. It counts, but boy doesn't that make this a downer if Waylon Jones as a henchman is all we're getting.

    Well, I'm pretty sure he'll come back as Killer Croc eventually in the series. So far 66' seems to be setting up a few ongoing plotlines so I can definitely see Croc showing up again somewhere down the line and already transformed.

    Batman and the Green Hornet team up again this May!:
    Batman, Green Hornet team for a '60s crossover

    The story will be written by Kevin Smith, so expect lengthy delays between each issue. Can't wait to see the PRINT solicitation for this. As always and expected, there is no comparison: BATMAN. SIXTY. SIX.

    Official Press Release:
    KEVIN SMITH AND RALPH GARMAN TEAM-UP ON A BATMAN

    Alrighty, ships biweekly digitally. So I assume maybe TWO digital adventures will be in ONE print monthly comic? Press release still doesn't mention if steps were taken to ensure the story will not face any delays because of the writer.

    Riddle me this! How do you celebrate Batman's 75th anniversary? With (and ONLY) Batman '66 of course!!!!!!

    Not a Kevin Smith fan but I am looking forward to this crossover.

    Finished reading the 8th print issue.
    Enjoyed the King Tut story more then the Shame story. B&R looked goofy weaering cowboy hats.
    Another Excellent cover by the Allards.

    They’re caught in a trap – and they can’t walk out! Make that several traps, all arranged by Zelda the Great! Zelda’s trying to learn new tricks for her stage act, and she wants Batman and Robin to show her how to escape them…whether they want to or not. Plus: the Dynamic Duo heads west for a showdown with Shame!
