DC Celebrates Batman’s 75th Anniversary With Mike Allred’s ‘Batman 66′ Inspired Variant Covers
In case you haven’t noticed from the constant parades I’ve been throwing around my neighborhood for the past four months, 2014 marks the 75th Anniversary of Batman’s creation by Bill Finger and Some Artist. To mark the occasion, DC is setting aside the month of May to honor one of the Caped Crusader’s most successful ventures into mass media: the 1966 Batman television show!
All month, DC’s titles will feature variant covers by Batman ’66 cover artist Mike Allred, drawing the DC Universe in the style of the ’60s TV show, and they are pretty awesome. Check out a handful below, featuring Superman, Wonder Woman, and even Swamp Thing ’66!
