Praise for Batman '66:
"The campy, cool interpretation of the caped crusader from the ever-popular television show elicits all sorts of emotions from comic book readers: from embarrassment to pure joy."—Comic Book Resources
"Artist Jonathan Case gets the Riddler's manic energy right and his Batman and Robin are on the money."—New York Post
"Even if you aren't a fan of the classic TV show, you'll have a good time here. It's a blast from start to finish."—IGN
About the Author
In the few years since his entry into the indie film community, Kevin Smith has seen it all—from the surprise critical and commercial success he received for his debut film Clerks to the disappointing critical and commercial drubbing he took on his second outing, Mallrats. He caught a break on his third film, the critically hailed Chasing Amy, and managed not to get killed by the religious zealots over his fourth film, the comedic meditation Dogma. Thus not deterred, Smith advanced and has written and directed Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Zach and Miri Make A Porno.
He's written comic books featuring not only his own characters (Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob), but other characters as well—the award-winning Daredevil at Marvel Comics, and the award-winning Green Arrow at DC comics. And if the film thing doesn't pan out, he does own his own comic-book store—Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, in beautiful downtown Red Bank, New Jersey.

The trade paperback brings together the individual issues #1-6 of this team up, and the artwork is incredible! The artists really draw the characters as the actors portrayed them in television. Highly recommended !!
Crossovers were basically unheard of when the original "Batman" and "Green Hornet" televisions series first aired back in 1966.
For those who came in late, The "Batman" television show can be best described as a cult classic serio-comic, somewhat campy spoof of the superhero genre; while "The Green Hornet" television show has a gritty realism to it because it played it straight for the most part.
"Batman Meets The Green Hornet '66" is a direct sequel to that historic television crossover. Written by Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, Ty Templeton, and Tony Avina; this comic book sequel begins when Italian adventurer Franco Bollo decides to transfer his expensive collection of fossils from Gotham City to Century City via train. Millionaire playboy Bruce Wayne fears there may be a hijacking attempt and decided to join Bollo on the trip - Dick Grayson isn't on-board because he's going on a date! . Also on board is newspaper magnate and owner of The Daily Sentinel, Britt Reid - newspaper magnate and owner of The Daily Sentinel in Century City - and his valet Kato also just happen to be on board the train. In their civilian identities Bruce and Britt have a somewhat intriguing conversation that hints that the other suspects. As it turns out though, Bruce and Britt have to swing into action becasue the villainous General Gumm (formerly Colonel) is also on board the train and he steals the fossils in spectacular fashion, leaving both teams of superheroes in deadly peril.
Perhaps the best line in the comic is when a somewhat miffed Kato whispers to the Green Hornet, "I can't believe you let her drive the Black Beauty." Her referring to Lenore Case.
The Joker is also in cahoots with General Gumm.
"Batman Meets The Green Hornet '66" is a true sequel to the original paring up with these two superhero teams.
