The much loved/hated BATMAN Tv series premiered 46 years ago tonight. Soon afterwards, the revived comic strip reappeared in newspapers across the land bearing little resemblance to its venerable comic book counterpart and owing much of its campiness to the TV series!
Looks like Sheldon Moldoff's art.ReplyDelete
I believe some of the newspaper strips were later reprinted in a British comic called SMASH! (I'm not sure if any of the actual ones you featured were used 'though.)ReplyDelete
Holy Anniversary Batman! Thanks for sharing the comic strips.ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting these! I have been searching for copies or reprints of the 1960s Batman strips, either in print or online. Can you recommend a source?ReplyDelete
There is no comprehensive source. There was one very good one but I believe it's currently between homes. I can't find it anyway.ReplyDelete
