Alex Ross Provides Another Breathtaking Cover For Kevin Smith’s BATMAN ’66 MEETS THE GREEN HORNET

by

Fans of the Batman ’66 series have had a lot to be happy about over the past year. Adam West and Burt Ward‘s Batman and Robin have gotten their own digital first comic series, more merchandise (toys, lunchboxes, and the like) than you can shake a stick at, a DVD release of the series is fast approaching, and a team-up with Green Hornet and Kato was announced. The dynamic Hollywood Babble On duo of Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman were revealed as the writers of the big team-up co-published by Dynamite and DC with Ty Templeton handling art. We’ve seen Alex Ross‘ stunning covers for the first two issues, and today the third cover has been released and it is just as stunning as the last two.

Yahoo! Movies’ Twitter page unleashed cover #3 showing Green Hornet, Batman, and General Gumm watching as Robin and Kato square off. Interesting fact: Burt Ward and Bruce Lee were neighbors when they were both working on their respective TV shows, and they spared regularly. Ward loves to recount stories like that at his numerous convention appearances. You can check out the new cover below, and you can see the first one here and the second one here. What do you think about Ross‘s latest?

In 1967, television history was made when two masked crime fighters met in a historic crossover. Now, superstar filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor/comedian Ralph Garman join forces with artist Ty Templeton (BATMAN ’66) to bring these two iconic characters and their famous partners together again. Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm. What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve?
