The ‘Batman 66′ Episode Guide 1×34: Batman Makes The Scenes

Batman 1x34: Batman Makes The Scenes

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman ’66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.

This week, it's the final episode of the first season - and the Episode Guide - as the Penguin strikes at Gotham's richest millionaires!

New ‘Batman’ Trilogy Reportedly in the Works, Ben Affleck May Play Batman Forever

During Comic-Con we heard that Ben Affleck is set to direct and star in his own Batman solo film, which he’ll co-write with DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. While Johns himself offered up some hints about their screenplay plans, Warner Bros. has yet to confirm the solo Batman film. Over the weekend, we learned that WB has pushed back Affleck’s next two films, and it was speculated that the move was designed in part so he could work on being Batman. The latest rumor definitely supports that theory.

What Would Happen If Batman Died And Bruce Came Back? Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo On ‘Batman’ [Interview]

Batman #42, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo

Ever since the events of Endgame, when Batman was presumed dead in a final battle against the Joker, Commissioner Jim Gordon has stepped into a giant robot Bat-suit as Gotham City's new protector. Bruce Wayne, however, isn't quite as dead as it may have seemed, and has turned up working for a charity in a neighborhood hit hard by the Joker-fueled riots.

At the end of last month's Batman #42, the two characters finally came face to face for the first time since Gordon became the new Batman, and it raised a lot of questions. Now, with Batman #43 on the horizon, I spoke to writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo about the new direction for Bruce Wayne, why they've taken almost four years to introduce a love interest, and whether Capullo prefers drawing bone monsters and Bat-Tanks to the smaller, more emotional moments.

Ask Chris #252: How Do You Solve A Problem Like Jason Todd?

Ask Chris #252: Jason Todd, background art by Matt Wagner

Q: Does Jason Todd/Red Hood belong in the Batman family? Should he be wearing a Bat symbol on his chest? -- @Doubting_Tom

A: I doubt it's going to surprise anyone reading this to find out that I have some pretty complicated feelings about pretty much everyone who has ever been called "Robin," and Jason Todd's no exception. Really, though, there's a pretty simple answer to this one: No, I don't think he should be part of the Batman family --- the active Batman family, anyway --- because Jason Todd oughtta be dead. If nothing else, we didn't collectively dial those 1-900 numbers ten thousand times to make that happen just for some retcon to come along twenty years later and bilk us out of fifty cents a call.

If, however, Jason Todd has to be alive, and it's become pretty clear over the past decade that somebody definitely thinks he does, well... that's where things start to get complicated.

On The Cheap: ‘The Player On The Other Side’ Is One Dollar This Week

Player00

This week, DC has a pretty big sale on Comixology called "Gotham's Finest," focusing on Batman's supporting cast, and it's a bit of a weird one. For one thing, it looks to be primarily themed around 1999's No Man's Land crossover, the massive story of a functionally post-apocalyptic Gotham City that has been ravaged by an earthquake, and the Officer Down event from 2001 that saw Jim Gordon shot by an unknown assailant.

That doesn't mean it's bad --- a lot of those stories are good, and Scott Snyder and Jock's Black Mirror is something you definitely want to get if you don't have it already --- but it does mean that they're asking for a pretty big commitment. If you've only got a single dollar burning a hole in your pocket and you're looking for a great read, though, there's one comic you need to get immediately: 1984's Batman Special #1, "The Player On The Other Side."

22 Years Ago: Harley Quinn Made Her First Appearance In Comics

Batman: Mad Love, art by Bruce Timm

On August 3, 1993, a comic came out that would prove to mark a pretty important change for Batman's gallery of foes: Kelley Puckett and Mike Parobeck's Batman Adventures #12. The story within, "Batgirl: Day One" is notable for a lot of reasons --- not the least of which that it's one of the best issues of that original run --- but there's one reason in particular that it'll always be remembered, because that issue marked the first comic book appearance of Harley Quinn.

Originally created for Batman: The Animated Series, Harley would go on to become not just a fan favorite, but the kind of character who would take a tragic, engaging, and occasionally hilarious hook and eventually become one of the core characters of the DC Universe.
