As part of the Wonder Woman 75th anniversary panel at New York Comic Con, DC announced the all-new Digital First title BATMAN ’66 MEETS WONDER WOMAN ’77.
The series will be co-written by BATMAN ’66 veteran Jeff Parker and WONDER WOMAN ’77 writer Marc Andreyko, and will see the best of the ‘60s and ‘70s will come together in this action-packed miniseries based on the classic Batman TV show starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and the fan-favorite Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter.
Speaking about the announcement, Parker said: “Readers have asked for this team-up since the BATMAN ’66 comic began and I’m thrilled we’re able to finally make it happen. Most of the credit goes to Marc Andreyko. He found me at a show and within minutes had me fired up about the story possibilities. It really feels like Lynda Carter and Adam West going into action again, this time together.”
Andreyko added: “It was BATMAN ’66 by Jeff Parker that inspired me to ask about doing WONDER WOMAN ’77, so getting to co-write with him is a dream come true. The story we’re spinning spans thirty years as these two legendary Super Heroes fight an ancient evil across the decades. We’ve planned lots of twists, cameos and surprises along the way that fans of both series will appreciate.”
The 12-chapter will launch digitally November 23, releasing new chapters every other week, and will feature art from popular artists David Hahn and Karl Kesel and cover art by Michael Allred. A six-issue printed version of series will follow in January 2017.
