Review: Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet #2
Writers Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith continue the excellent job, really capturing the style of dialogue from the TV show. However, one critique I have is that they seemed to portray the Dynamic Duo a bit more buffoonish in contrast to the more stoic Hornet and Kato. One of the big problems with seasons 2 and 3 that many fans dislike is that Batman and Robin became buffoons, where as they were more heroic in season 1. I hope Garman and Smith don't end up going down that slippery slope like regular series writer Jeff Parker has. Ty Templeton's artwork is superb, and gets all the likeness right, although he could make Batman's gut a little smaller. Need I say Alex Ross' covers are masterpieces. This issue earns a B+.
