PREVIEW: Four Guesses at What’s Happening in ‘Batman 66’

Listen, we’re not going to explain Batman ’66 to you, because the series, set in the world of Adam West Batman with a cheeky postmodern look back,needs no explanation. It’s simply enough that it exists. And we’re not going to explain why we love this title, because we already did that and again: self-explanatory.

This particular excerpt comes from Wednesday’s Digital First Chapter #29, and will hit print on the 19th in Batman ’66 #9. Tom Peyer writes, and Chris Sprouse draws this tale of Batman’s butler Alfred and his hell-raising cousin:

These boots were made for walking, yes, but their primary purpose is to kick the crap out of you.

Egbert Pennyworth, you leek-chewing half-scoundrel, you are afoot among the good people of Gotham! Can a caper be far behind?

What’s this? Egbert, posing as Alfred? Batman, unable to answer a summons? Commissioner Gordon, decommissioned? Oh, say it isn’t so, Bat-fans!

If Egbert’s willing to let his cousin die neglected rather than admit it’s all over, we’re betting he’s more than halfway corrupt.

This is actually tougher than Alfred had it while Bane was ruling Gotham as a closed-borders city-state.
