Default Re: The Batman (1966) Appreciation Thread

Has anyone been reading the new comic book based on the show? I picked up the second issue yesterday and it was a ton of fun. The artist on this issue was Ty Templeton who used to draw the comic book series based off BTAS back in the day.

His Penguin was the spitting image of Burgess Meredith:

And Mr. Freeze was styled after Otto Preminger's

There was lots of other classic 60's show tropes in there, including the Batboat and Penguin's sub from the spin off movie:

"Sometimes I remember it one way. Sometimes another. If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!"
