Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman to do 1966 Batman/Green Hornet Comic


That sounds about right for Smith – doing a superhero comic that actually plays to his comedic abilities.

With an Alex Ross cover (above), the issue will be a sequel to the TV episode where the heroes met, and feature the same villain, Colonel Gumm – though DC doesn’t have the actor likeness rights, so expect a horrible accident to have befallen his face, even as he’s been promoted to General.

Smith and Garman have stated that their ultimate hope is for a Batman ’66 animated movie from DC, while Adam West is still alive and basically sounding the same as he ever did. I’m not sure what the legalities are there, but I’d imagine it would be the best-selling DC animated movie ever if it happened.
