Review: Archie Meets Batman ’66 #1

Writers Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci bring together two new properties in the popular “Batman ’66” line of comics that have reinvigorated the property and brought a lot of fun with it. While the actual formal meeting of the two properties doesn’t take place in this issue it reads like a pretty basic Batman stopping the bad guys as it sets up while Riverdale gets roped in to things.

There’s a lot of characters thrown in to the issue and it feels right at home with everything that has been set up to this point. The tone, the look, it all comes together in a familiar package but with the new addition of Archie and his friends.

A lot of that has to do with the art from Dan Parent, colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick, and ink by J. Bone. Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and the rogues all look as expected, great that is, and the Archie kids look right at home. It’s two properties that blend together very well. There is an issue with one panel when Veronica switches outfits from the previous one but it could be time passing to explain that. Everything though works great and even the crazier aspects of Batman ’66 still feel right at home and blend with the Riverdale kids. It’s interesting in how visually the two work together.

While we don’t get to see Batman with Archie in this issue, it’s still a good start and one that gives us a Batman adventure you can read in one issue. It’s a good start and brings the two properties together in a smooth way. Hopefully we’ll get more of the two property’s characters actually together in the second issue but kicking things off, this is a good way to go about it.
