"HOLY SUPERHERO TEAM UP BATMAN!"
Okay, I couldn't resist.
What makes "Batman '88 Meets Wonder Woman '77" such a delightful read is that not only does it pay homage to both incarnations of "Wonder Woman" - the WWII version and the '70s version - but it also stays true to the original Batman television series as well while capturing what made each show unique. It also takes the concluding story arc in the 1970s to a logical conclusion and sheds some new light on the direction the original Batman show may have taken. Robin has become Nightwing. Batman retired after killing the Joker for killing Alfred. Catwoman has become a crime fighter. And Batgirl has evolved into Batwoman. It's also hinted that Nighwing and Catwoman have a romantic/sexual relationship, and that Batman and Batwoman have a relationship - which does go against the Bronze Age continuum in a slight measure. At the heart of this story is Ra's al Ghul and his League of Shadows and Ra's quest for immortality by renewing his body.
Note: While it's doubtful any more animated movies of the original Batman television series starring Adam West will be made, I'm hoping that DC will consider bringing Lynda Carter back as Wonder Woman in animated movies.
I'm used to good, even beautiful artwork from the comic books of the 1960's and 1970's, and the artwork in these new crossover books continually took me out of the story experience as I so often noticed how poor the artwork was.
