Batman 66 meets The Man from U.N.C.L.E. #1 (DC Comics)

Only in comics is this kind of wacky but entertaining crossover adventure possible. Two great iconic TV series from the sixties Batman (Adam West) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are brought together for the very first time!
Actually whilst the story intertwines in the first issue Batman hasn't met Napoleon Solo or Illya Kuryakin as yet, but the scene is set as the Penguin breaks out of Arkham Asylum with help from an as yet unidentified benefactor .
Meanwhile Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin have been captured by agent of T.H.R.U.S.H, Queen Olga a woman with nefarious plans for our heroes.
I can't recommend this enough frankly. It's great fun, reminiscent of the sixties TV programmes themselves.
The first issue of this six issue mini-series is in comic shops now!
So here to remind you of the shows themselves are two sets of clips.
