The Season 1 handbook is now available…
Such timing. It was just Batman’s 81st anniversary and on Monday, you can get your hands on a brand-new copy of ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE! The Subterranean Blue Grotto Guide to Batman ’66 – Season One — brought to you by Crazy 8 Press and a coterie of writers and historians headed up by editor Jim Beard.
ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE! takes an unorthodox approach to episode guides: Instead of straightforward recaps, each Season 1 installment is analyzed by a crew of Bat-experts, such as Beard (Gotham City 14 Miles); The Batcave Podcast host John S. Drew; former Batman comics writer Chuck Dixon; Crazy 8 co-founder and longtime comics editor Robert Greenberger; comic book writer Paul Kupperberg; novelist Dayton Ward; historian Peter Sanderson; 13th Dimension contributor and podcaster Chris Franklin; plus many others, including Keith DeCandido, Will Murray, Ed Catto, Rich Handley, Pat Evans, Steve Thompson, Mark Racop and Ben Bentley.
Oh, and I’m proud to be included in this company with an essay of my own: 13 QUICK THOUGHTS ON THE THIRTEENTH HAT — featuring the Mad Hatter’s first appearance in the series.
