SNEAK PEEK: ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN ’66 #1

We’ve had quite a bit of Batman ’66 news over the last week, right?

For starters, we unveiled all six of the covers for Archie Meets Batman ’66 #3 and you can see each by clicking on the artists’ names: Mike Allred, Art Baltazar, Howard Chaykin, Veronica Fish, Franco and David Mack.

That was followed by the news that Diamond Select’s Adam West/Bruce Wayne mini-bust was being primed for release. (Click here.)

Then came word that Factory Entertainment’s remarkably detailed 1:50-scale Batcave model is ready to ship. (Click here.)

And now there’s more: Archie and DC have released an unlettered preview of Archie Meets Batman ’66 #1, via SyfyWire.

You can click here to see all five pages and some of the lettered covers, but here are a couple pages to whet your Bat-whistle:

The series is written by Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci, with a multitude of covers by some of comics’ grooviest artists.

Here’s Mike Allred’s unlettered main cover for Issue #1, which is due 7/18:
