The 1960s TV versions of Batman and Robin are meeting up with their Avengers counterparts — but no, not thoseAvengers. Originally announced during Comic-Con International: San Diego in 20165, Batman ’66 Meets Steed And Mrs. Peel is a six-issue series continuing in DC’s line of comic books based on the classic 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West, this time crossing over with another 1960s TV hit, The Avengers.
“As Bruce Wayne shows the beautiful head of a UK electronics company the sights of Gotham, they are interrupted by the felonious feline Catwoman!,” reads DC’s official description. “Unwilling to leave Miss Michaela Gough unprotected, Bruce resigns himself to the fact that Batman cannot save the day. But some new players have arrived in town – though even as the lovely, catsuit-clad Mrs. Peel and her comrade John Steed take control of the situation, nefarious plots continue apace!”
Batman ’66 Meets Steed and Mrs. Peel is written by Ian Edginton with interior art by Matthew Dow Smith; frequent Batman ’66 artist Mike Allred will be doing covers, along with Cat Staggs.
The series will debut digitally on June 8 with the first of 12 weekly installments, with a six-part print edition debuting July 6.
