Bullets & Bracelets & Bionics! If it’s always darkest before the dawn, Wonder Woman and the Bionic Woman — along with some familiar faces — had better pray that the dawn comes soon. Because from where the story continues, things look awfully dire. The evil cabal of villains have sprung their trap, and have staged a monumental assault, and one major character is already badly hurt. Our heroines will soon find that nothing is unbreakable!

The best-selling team-up fans demanded is written by best-selling author ANDY MANGELS (Star Trek & Star Wars) and illustrated by JUDIT TONDORA (Grimm Fairy Tales).

Review: Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 Ch. 1

bm66mww77_ch01-d_sfcoverIt was a matter of time before these two classic properties came together, but we finally have the 1960s Batman meeting the 1970s Wonder Woman in a digital first series that begins with a flashback and I think introduces some more modern characters into the classic setting.

What mysteries are hidden in the book Ra’s al Ghul just hired Catwoman to steal? And why does this caper lead Batman down memory lane-to his childhood fight against actual Nazis?!

Written by Jeff Parker and Marc Andreyko, Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 kicks off with a caper by Catwoman, but quickly dives into the past as Bruce reflects on his childhood and an incident of an auction that was crashed by Nazis and the League of Assassins.

The story is over the top fun as you’d expect with a series such as this bringing together not just the characters but also Ra’s al Ghul, Catwoman, Talia al Ghul, and Nazis in a story that feels like it’s a mix of classic Batman with Indiana Jones.

There’s a certain camp you’d expect when reading this type of story and Park and Andreyko delivers making sure to not take things too seriously and also work it so it feels fairly natural as to how Wonder Woman fits into it all. And since this is a digital chapter which tend to run pretty short, there’s actually a hell of a lot fit in there.

The art by David Hahn continues the style we’ve seen and has become what I’d expect for this setting and these series. It’s solid and I’d be interested in seeing how it flows in comiXology compared to my reading it as single pages in a PDF. So, my reading wasn’t ideal in reality and there may have been some things I missed due to that (Wonder Woman spinning to change could be really cool digitally for instance). Still, it’s solid work that continues the style we’ve seen before.

Overall, it’s a digital chapter, so a bit short for me, but it does pack in a lot and continues the fun tone of classic Batman and Wonder Woman. I can’t wait to read the next chapter and see where things go from here.
