In his excitement to get word out about the book, Parker jokingly tweeted out that even if people are talking about other subjects, they should still use #Batman66.

Last week, DC announced that they were going to be producing a new digital-first series based on the 1966 Batman TV show, with the creative team of Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case. For those of us who love Batman '66 with what some might refer to as "religious fervor," this is pretty exciting news.
