EXCLUSIVE: Get ready for a parade of ginchy art…
Archie Meets Batman ’66 looks to be one of the grooviest comics coming out this summer, as the Caped Crusaders make their way to Riverdale where hijinks will almost certainly ensue.
The six-issue miniseries launches in July (click here). Can’t wait.
But get this, September’s solicitations are out next week — and we’ve not only got the inside scooplet on Issue #3 due in September, we’ve got your EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK at all six covers.
Yep, six covers by some of comics’ top artists.
Now why show them all at once? Instead, let’s have some fun. From now until Monday, we’re going to unveil one at a time, starting with Mike Allred’s main cover, with colors by Laura Allred:
I dunno, what should we call it? How about Surf’s Up! Riverdale’s Under!
Works for me. And hey, we finally get to see what Robin’s baggies look like! (By the way, I wonder if Robin being right next to Betty means anything. It’s like trying to parse the meaning of a Beatles album cover.)
Next up? Art Baltazar (click here) and Howard Chaykin (click here)!
Meanwhile, here’s the official solicitation info, courtesy of Archie and DC:

Robin looks more interested in Archie.

So. Atman is wearing shorts over shorts over shorts presumably. As Robin is tanning in just shorts…but yes with his cape…too funny. I wonder if there were discussions or editorial changes…
