A fun Graphic Novel for Batman '66 fans: Vol. 2 Paperback

As a kid I remember being excited to see every episode of the TV series Batman and Robin from 1966 to 1968, and DC Comics started creating comics and graphic novels about the series. The stories and the art are fantastic.
  This features the Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin, Yvonne Craig Batgirl, and all of the villains appear and act exactly as the actors who portrayed them in the TV series. I love this!
   There are currently 5 volumes, and the one I just enjoyed was Volume 2. Our friend John in Florida sent it as a surprise, just out of the blue. What a FUN surprise and a great, entertaining read. I'll be reading this over and over, just as I have all of the TV episodes and watch them again and again.
 
About this collection:
THE JOKER is the Clown Prince of Crime and the Caped Crusader’s most formidable foe — but is this perverse Pagliacci low-down enough to commit the ultimate corporate crime and downsize his own gang?

KING TUT is the felonious pharaoh who means to make Gotham City into his own modern-day jewel on the Nile — but will a sinister spell allow him to travel through time and rule over the real thing?

THE RIDDLER is the malevolent master of mind-teasers — but will his latest query-filled crime spree distract Robin, the Boy Wonder, from the dirty deeds of Gotham’s newest criminal... Bruce Wayne?

Tune in — er, read on — for the answers in BATMAN ’66 VOL. 2, collecting brand-new tales of the Dynamic Duo in the style of the smash-hit TV series from the swingin’ ’60s!

Written by Jeff Parker and Tom Peyer, this titanic tome features astonishing art from such towering talents as Ty Templeton, Ted Naifeh, Rubén Procopio, Chris Sprouse, Joëlle Jones and many more!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
