Groovy Crimefighting In 'Batman '66 Meets Steed & Mrs. Peel'
When it came to 1960s action television, two campy crimefighting series captured the attention of audiences the world over. The first was Batman, the legendary Adam West/Burt Ward series that brought the Day-Glo hijinks of the comics to TV. The other is The Avengers, a long-running spy/science fiction --- or "spy-fi" if you will --- series from Doctor Who co-creator Sydney Newman. The best known seasons of The Avengers paired Patrick McNee's "top professional " John Steed with Diana Rigg as the stylish "talented amateur" Mrs. Emma Peel. Although they've starred in their own comics before under the title Steed & Mrs Peel (to avoid confusion with those other Avengers) --- including comics written by Mark Waid and Grant Morrison --- now the pair cross paths with the Dynamic Duo in Batman '66 Meets Steed & Mrs. Peel, by Ian Edginton, Matthew Dow Smith and Jordie Bellaire. Judging by this first chapter, readers are in for a treat.
Edginton And D'Israeli's 'Scarlet Traces' Returns In July
War of the Worlds has been a cultural touchstone for over a hundred years now, so it's not really surprising that we've gotten a handful of comics that take that influence and ran with it. With Scarlet Traces, though, Ian Edginton and Matt "D'Israeli" Brooker are taking it a step further, focusing not on the Martian invasion, but on the aftermath and how the introduction of extraterrestrial technology has changed the balance of power in the world. And in July, Scarlet Traces is returning to the pages of 2000 AD with "Cold War," which takes place in 1968 and finds Britain dealing with the aftermath of another war of the worlds --- Earth's invasion of Mars. Check out some preview pages!
