Ahhh…summertime. As people roll out their grills for cookouts, vacations, and holidays, the comic world focuses on big screen blockbusters and major events at multiple publishers. It's convention season here in comics, and the creators are out in force peddling their wares to the faithful attendees at San Diego Comic Con and beyond. This is traditionally the time when we get the most powerful editorial stories being published and judging by the comics listed in Previews, this year will be one of the best. Start your summer right with some of the biggest comics on the horizon and these special gems I've added to the pull list…
Batman 66 #1
Holy Batusi! Break out the Bat-Shark Repellant and crank up the classic Batmobile! Are you really telling me that DC is making a comic book series based on the Adam West TV series from the 60s? All those fan favorite actors and their classic performances as the Rogues Gallery are coming to comics with all the BAM! BIFF! POW! you can handle? Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case have the extremely enviable job of crafting stories that harken us back to a simpler era, when heroes and villains could fight to the most recognizable superhero theme song ever created. If you don't feel like a kid again just looking at the cover art for this series, there is truly no hope for you. This is the comic book I'm personally most looking forward to this summer!
