Separated into 3 two issue arcs, we get stories from three different times What s great about that is you get to see both shows in all their eras The WWII period of Wonder Woman 77 season 1, the era of Batman 66, and then Wonder Woman 77 Ra s al Ghul is the villain across all three stories Catwoman also appears in all three stories and slyly is replaced in each story with one of the 3 actresses who played her.In the first story, Bruce is a kid and his parents are holding an auction at Wayne Manor Young Bruce and Talia meet and have an adventure while escaping both Nazis and Ra s Wonder Woman, and Steve Trevor show up as well since WW doesn t age in the show s mythology Next up, Batman and Robin head to Paradise Island during the Batman 66 era Wonder Girl even makes an appearance.The last sto
I love Lynda Carter s portrayal of Wonder Woman, and the old Adam West Batman is fun, too Put them together, and you ve got a blast of a superhero story With fabulous artwork, great action, and delightful dialogue, this made for exciting reading This was so much fun I still love the Batman 66 show and, even though I ve never properly seen the Wonder Woman show, I know how important it was in terms of representation This TPB was action packed than I expected I love that it spans so many eras the 40s, the 60s, and the 70s The artists manage to render each decade extremely well One gets a real sense of time and place throughout the book I didn t expect as many characters as we get in this series Alongside Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman, there s also Catwoman, who plays a very large role in the story And the League of Shadows, who never appeared in the show, only in the comics There are other characters, who I can t mention without spoiling the story.The 60s show had three actors playing Catwoman Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, and Eartha Kitt The story opens with Kitt s Catwoman, which I thought was a brilliant choice Kitt was a trailblazer in her time and her take on the supervillain has been of immense culture relevance I have to admit, I couldn t quite tell the difference between the artists renditions of Meriwether and Newmar I thought they were the same Catwoman but apparently not I remember being just as confused while watching the show, so it isn t really the artists fault The two actors looked surprisingly alike, especially in costume.There are a lot of female characters here which is g
I had high hopes for this team up, perhaps unreasonably so, but ended up feeling a bit underwhelmed.The story is split into three parts The 1940s coinciding with Wonder Woman s first season , the 1960s Batman s heyday , and the 1970s as per Wonder Woman s later seasons Which sounds good in theory, but in practice means that the first third of the book consists of a pre teen Bruce Wayne being chased through a hedge maze by Nazis, which is just not that interesting.Part two has a lot going for it Both heroes are in their prime, and the action takes place in an ancient Greek labyrinth, sort of Raiders of the Lost Ark by way of Ray Harryhausen the sort of thing the tv shows budget would never have allowed, but comics can do with relative ease This was my favorite section.The conclusion, unfortunately, falls back into being pretty mundane There s a sub plot about Batman having retired, due to some Bad Stuff that happened between chapters This is a plotline we see in Batman comics all the time The Caped Crusader finally gives in to his inner darkness, etc etc But it rings really false when applied to the unflappable Adam West version
It would have been easy enough to play Adam West meeting Lynda Carter as a camp romp plenty of other Batman 66 crossovers went that way, and they were mostly lots of fun And sure, this is happy to do things like have Catwoman change actress, unremarked, between issues But it s something bolder too, a generational saga going from a young Bruce Wayne s meeting with
A fun trip to the alternate universe populated by memory lane. Jeff Parker wowed me so much with his writing on Future Quest I thought I would check out some of his other work This didn t wow me as much and the first story arc was kind of underwhelming but by the end of the volume I was actually enjoying this new take on some old characters The art is good but not great I wish it captured of the feel of the Tv series that inspired this book Wonder Woman kinda looked like Linda Carter but the Batman characters didn t look anything like Adam West Burt Ward or Yvonne Craig.Jeff Parker has an interesting take on the charactershe writes it from a weird perspective as if the TV shows existed but also the characters grew olderso WW 77 we have an older Batman, a Nightwing from the disco era and a Batwoman who became the Commissioner The three 2 parters see our heroes grow from young Bruce Wayne to Batman of the TV series to older retired Batman Wonder Woman rem
I ve never been a fan of the Adam West TV series, so I haven t read any of the previous books I picked this up for the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman After reading it I m going to have to go back and look up the previous volumes this book was fun I liked how they showed Batman getting older througout the three storyline
This was a fun, nostalgic love letter to the super heroes fans that grew up with the Adam West s Batman and the 1970 s Wonder Woman I could hear the actors voices as I read the dialogue Enjoyable from start to finish I hope that there will be of this awesome team up in the near future. love the way they manage to weave the 2 shows together.and even go into the future
