Friendly, Wholesome, And Tough: David Hahn And Karl Kesel On The Art Of ‘Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77’ [Interview / Preview]

Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, DC Comics

Ever since DC launched Batman '66, the crossover that virtually everyone wanted was a meeting between the Adam West-era Caped Crusader and Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman. Now, it's happening in the pages of Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, a crossover from Jeff Parker, Marc Andreyko, David Hahn, and Karl Kesel that takes place across three different eras, pitting Batman and Wonder Woman against Ra's al-Ghul, Talia, and a handful of other special guest villains.

It's an incredibly entertaining story that goes well beyond what both series were able to do on TV. To find out more about it, ComicsAlliance spoke to Hahn and Kesel about the challenge of drawing a story with three different flavors of retro style, and the era's perfect "casting" of Ra's al-Ghul, and we got a first look at this week's issue.

The DC Universe Collides With Hanna-Barbera’s Most Beloved Characters In March

DCHB-Featured

While DC Comics has had a great 2016 largely thanks to its DC Rebirth initiative, the success of its updated Hanna-Barbera titles such as Future Quest and The Flintstones has been one of the most surprising hits of the year. Next year, DC is doubling down on its classic cartoon characters by teaming them up with some of the most iconic heroes in the DC Universe in a number of special annuals set for release in March.

Get Ready For Frankenstein Jr. In ‘Future Quest’ #6 [Exclusive Preview]

Future Quest #6, DC Comics

Future Quest is a comic that gets things done. In the five months that it's been a part of DC's monumentally fascinating Hanna-Barbera relaunch, it's offered a plot that unites virtually all of H-B's classic adventure cartoons in a single story, the debut of a new version of Mightor, a fourth member of the Impossibles, and, perhaps most importantly, Birdman shouting "Birrrrrrrrrdmaaaaaan!" Now, though, we're finally getting something that I've been waiting for since this whole series started.

No, not the dramatic return of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids, but something almost as good. When Future Quest #6 hits shelves next week, Jeff Parker and "Doc" Shaner are finally bringing us... Frankenstein Jr. Check out an exclusive preview!

Two Iconic Heroes Meet For The First Time In ‘Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77′ #1 [NYCC 2016]

BMWW

DC's digital-first re-imaginings and continuations of beloved superhero shows of decades past have not only yielded some great comics in their own right, but recently they've been crossing over with other properties in a similar vein. Batman '66 has met up with Green Hornet and The Man From Uncle while Wonder Woman '77 has been hanging out with The Bionic Woman.

Later this year, thing rocket to their logical conclusion as, for the first time, Adam West and Burt Ward's Batman and Robin team-up with Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman for an epic crossover that could only be called Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie? [Sci-Fi Week]

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

To kick off Sci-Fi Week, I’m looking at a new spin on a classic: Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon. But to keep this version fresh and different from the classic 1980 film, I'm not adapting the original comic, but rather the 2014 Dynamite Comics series by Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner.

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

This week, I'm looking at one of my favorite current comics, Future Quest, written by Jeff Parker with art by Doc Shaner and a number of guest artists. If you don't already know, Future Quest is a timespace-spanning epic that unites characters from a wide variety of classic Hanna-Barbera adventure cartoons, including Jonny Quest, Birdman, Space Ghost, and many more.

Masked Robots and Super-Cavemen: Jeff Parker Talks ‘Future Quest’ [Interview]

quest_mightor

Future Quest has been one of the most fun comics of 2016 so far, re-introducing the classic Hanna-Barbera adventure characters and drawing them into one epic story as they battle an immense extra-dimensional monster known as Omnicron.

Future Quest #4 out this Wednesday, August 31, features the introduction of Mightor by series writer Jeff Parker and artist Evan "Doc" Shaner, as well as Frankenstein Jr. courtesy of guest artist Ron Randall. ComicsAlliance sat down with Parker to talk about time/space weirdness, the challenges of fleshing out kids' cartoon characters, and why a robot would wear a mask.

Jeff Parker Returns To ‘Flash Gordon’ For ‘King’s Cross’ With Jesse Hamm, Grace Allison And Simon Bowland [SDCC 2016]

Flash Gordon: King's Cross

Launching a shared superhero universe is a pretty daunting task even for the best creators in comics, but 2013's Kings Watch from Jeff Parker and Marc Laming is hands down one of the best I've ever read. Built around the idea of Ming the Merciless arriving on Earth with an invasion plan that starts by simply turning off global communication --- and returning printed newspapers to the kind of prominence they haven't had since the last century --- the story threw Flash Gordon, the Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician into high adventure and provided the springboard for some great comics.

Now, Parker is returning to Flash Gordon with artist and co-writer Jesse Hamm, colorist Grace Allison, and letterer Simon Bowland, for an all-new five-issue story called "Kings Cross," set to make its debut in November --- and they're bringing Ming the Merciless back with them.

Space Ghost Is Going To Be Your Batman: Jeff Parker And Doc Shaner On ‘Future Quest’ [Interview]

Future Quest cover by Doc Shaner

DC's upcoming Hanna-Barbera line has already grabbed plenty of interest with its offbeat takes on classics like Scooby Doo and Wacky Races, but for a lot of readers, the most hotly anticipated title is the one that has the closest connection to its cartoon roots. In Future Quest, Jeff Parker and Evan "Doc" Shaner, the team behind last year's Convergence: Shazam miniseries, are reuniting for a story big enough to require virtually all of the Hanna-Barbera adventure characters.

On the eve of the book's launch this week, ComicsAlliance spoke to Parker and Shaner about the origins of the project, the characters they learned to love, and why they wanted to give Birdman something he'd never had before: a personality.
