WARNER BROS. CONFIRMS RELEASE DETAILS OF ‘BATMAN: THE COMPLETE TELEVISION SERIES’
By Andy Khouri
After decades of waiting, fans of the beloved Batman television show of the 1960s — or Batman ’66 as it is known — will finally be able to own all 120 episodes on home video, and in high definition. After protracted litigation with series owner Fox, DC Comics’ parent company Warner Bros. has set November 11 as the on-sale date for the completely remastered Batman ’66, which will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, digital, and, of course, a super expensive collector’s edition that comes with all sorts of groovy stuff, including a selection of photos from star Adam West’s personal archives (when you’re as mature and sophisticated as West, you get to have “personal archives”).

Ok, before you say I jumped on the bandwagon, let me take a selfie with my batmobile: It’s BATGIRL!!!
This week, we’re looking at the cover to the fifth Hero Business collection “Simon Sayeth”, on sale soon!
As usual, I do an homage to a famous comic book cover. For this issue, I was inspired by New Mutants #87, by Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane… I know Liefeld gets his share of flack, but you gotta admit, that is one dynamic cover!
A glorious fuck-ton of perspective angle references (per request).
