DC Comics Finally Admits It Has That Other Version of Batman Lying Around

25 Mar

ImageSo for years now, DC has pretended that the 1966 Adam West-Burt Ward “Batman” television series just didn’t exist because it conflicted with the ridiculous grim’n’gritty image the company seems to want for the character. But that appears to be changing: courtesy of Heidi MacDonald’s excellent site “The Beat,” DC has a line of comics based directly on the campy take on the characters scheduled. The most interesting thing about the comics is that they’ve got covers by Mike Allred (who, poor guy, got robbed by Ebenezer Scrooge or somebody else who hates fun, because Allred’s art is amazing), but the change in strategy probably means that we’ll be getting DVDs of the old TV show before too long.
