Batman '66 Vol. 4 - Jeff Parker, Richard Case

These stories set in the world of the old Adam West Batman TV series are a lot of fun. Some standout pieces in the collection include Batgirl vs Bookworm at the Gotham Public Library, and Batman traveling to Tokyo to confront Lord Death Man, a fairly obscure character from the Batman Manga series. The highlight is an adaptation of an unused plot from the old TV series written by Harlan Ellison and featuring the villain Two-Face. The story is illustrated by legendary comics artist Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. His illustrations are so lushly detailed and dynamic that DC Comics included his original pencil art for the entire story in the collection. Garcia-Lopez's pencils could be used as a how-to guide for comic book storytelling.
