Batman '66 Meets the Man From U.N.C.L.E. Reviews

    This crossover works surprisingly well. Batman's rogues gallery gets recruited by T.H.R.U.S.H. so Batman, Robin, and Batgirl team up with Napoleon Solo to stop them. Parker does a great job of juggling all the characters. He has me looking forward to crossovers with other 60's TV shows. Maybe we'll see a Batman '66 Meets Emma Peel or Mission: Impossible.

    This gets 4 stars just for being fun, silly, and nostalgic. I can totally see this being a crossover episode -- probably a two-parter with a cliffhanger in the middle.

    I've been a fan of 1960's Batman since I was a kid, and I've been enjoying this series of comics immensely. I also recently got into watching the Man from U.N.C.L.E., so when I went to the bookstore and saw this crossover comic, I literally grabbed it off the shelf and shouted, "Mine!" While sometimes I'm not the biggest fan of Jeff Parker's stories (he has a tendency to get a little too comic-bookish and doesn't keep to the essence of the 60's show), I was not disappointed in this book. Everyone is true to character, and I was glad to see not only Batman and Robin helping out Agents Solo and Kuryakin, but also my personal favorite Batgirl. There are also plenty of in-jokes and nods to both Batman and Man from U.N.C.L.E. throughout the series.If I had one complaint, it would be the artist's interpretation of the characters, especially for the two U.N.C.L.E. agents. Napoleon looks like "generic brunette agent," and Illya is "generic blonde agent." It almost seems like the comic couldn't get permission to use Robert Vaughn and David McCallum's images, so they went with as non-descriptive of characters as possible. Other than that, I really enjoyed the book and wouldn't mind seeing another team-up of the two fandoms in the future.

    Weit weg von einer gelungenen Synthese zweier Kultserien der 60er!

    This is a fun cross-over of two 1960's television icons, and is the direct result of Warner Bros. releasing the Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie last year. This was actually a fun idea that really tripped the triggers of older fans and had a hook into younger fans who are only now getting to experience the old Batman TV show on DVD and the U.N.C.L.E. characters in the new movie. THRUSH, the main antagonist organization from the U.N.C.L.E. TV show, has a new leader who decides to recruit new operatives from among Batman's rogues gallery. Setting them about several nefarious tasks, he trains them to work together and up the threat to the world beyond Gotham City. Of course, this forces an allegiance between Batman and the agents from U.N.C.L.E.Overall, I had fun with this. You get to see a lot of characters interact that would never have been possible on 60's TV. The story was pretty heavily weighted on the side of Batman, his allies and his enemies, though, making me feel the U.N.C.L.E. boys were a little short-changed. The plot kind of loses its way about halfway through the series, and any overall villainous schemes are sidelined after the identity of THRUSH's new leader is revealed. There are definitely some great bits that echo back to the secret agent era such as a couple of clever gadgets, laser death traps, and even the inclusion of an undersea base! I could completely visualize this as a movie along the lines of the Batman movie from the time. You can tell that was absolutely Jeff Parker's intention.While it was a pleasant little distraction, it wasn't compelling enough to be incredibly memorable beyond its novelty status. Fun concept, entertainingly executed, but very much popcorn for the mind!

    When a new operative of the criminal organization THRUSH frees all of the inmates from Arkham, Batman and Robin must join forces with the Man from UNCLE! Jeff Parker returns to the Batman '66 universe in this 2016 crossover! All of your classic television favorites are here including Batgirl, Egghead, Napoleon Solo, and Soviet agent Illya Kuryakin. (Man, did my mom have a crush on him!) There's even a few 'modern' villains such as Poison Ivy and a mystery player involved. Sorry- I can't spoil it! (But I can tell you- I saw the plot twist from a mile away!) Other than what my mother has told me about the Man From UNCLE, I have never seen the show. But my mom was what you would call a super-fan of the show. So, I think I have a decent idea of what sort of flow to expect from the UNCLE characters. Considering that the Batman '66 segments fit very well with that show's personality, I would say that Jeff Parker did an admirable job combining the two franchises.My favorite part of this book was the art. David Hahn (Suicide Girls) does a fine job at capturing the Batman '66 look of both the show and comic book series. But of course, more than anything, I dug Madman's Mike Allred's groovy covers. I really want to see him take on a 4-issue crossover between Batman '66 and Star Trek '66- and not just the covers. I think it would be wild! Great fun for those nostalgic fans of classic TV and classic comic books!

    This is a great team up from 2 shows that influenced the 1960's. Parker does a fantastic job to keep the continuity alive with both characters and not taking away their individuality. Its not too serious and fun that is accessible for both adults and young readers. I cannot complain about the artwork which is excellent. I would love to see both characters team up again. RIP to Yvonne Craig, Robert Vaughan, and Adam West.

    This is a fun mash-up of two favorite TV series of the 1960s. I could hear the voices and see the mannerisms of the actors well translated to the page, even if some of the likenesses were not quite there. The plot is a bit thin, and there really are too many characters running around so that a lot of them get shorted on story time. I enjoyed seeing an expansion of the bat gadgets and vehicles that a TV budget would never have allowed.

    Great fun! This book teams up two classic 60s shows, ties up a loose thread from the Batman ‘66 comic, and hints at a sequel with grace. My only complaint is that the UNCLE crew felt more like guest stars than equal co-leads. Loved seeing a range of Bat-villains, only some of whom originally appeared on the show.

    Graphic novel mashup that brings Batman and the men from UNCLE together. One of the baddies from THRUSH, or the evil organization in the UNCLE series, busts out a number of top villains from Gotham City's Arkham Asylum. Together, this massed evil plans to take over the world. To combat the evil group, Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Solo, and Kuryakin team up together.

    Nice job with this collection. One story throughout and interesting, too boot. Good blend of the U.N.C.L.E. and the Bats Family characters. I only wish there were more of these crossovers in the future.

    A fun mashup of two of my favorite TV series. A couple of good jokes and twists. A worthy read.

    Liked the aesthetic (and the undersea base!) but wish there was more character interaction between the agents and Batfamily. They were just sort of adjacent most of the time.

    Typical comic book (and movie) overkill: so many villains that most characters—including our heroes—are presented thinly. Fun but too often disappointing.

    This book is quite a blast from my childhood. Two of my favorite shows together in one comic! I like that they got the speech patterns right. I could just hear Adam West whenever Batman spoke.

    Modest entertainmentClearly this is UNCLE season 3 - Napoleon dances with gorilla, camp meets camp. Adjust your expectations accordingly and there remain two minor kvetches: is it campy enough? (no) how is the artwork? (just this side of passable: Napoleon and Ilya could be Betty and Veronica, black out Betty's hair and you have twins)

    Yet another great book in this series! I'm not familiar with The Man From U.N.C.L.E, but that didn't stop my experience. Great to see the characters interact and even having Hugo Strange involved. Great if you love the '66 series!

    When you think about possible crossovers with the 1966 television show version of Batman, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. does not leap to the top of that list. That being said, the author did a really good job trying to tie together the two shows.

  • Erik

    Pretty fun crossover. I don't know much about the Man from UNCLE but the Batman parts are just like the show. The two work well together in a James Bond style terrorist adventure.

    As a fan of both the Batman '66 and Man from U.N.C.L.E. shows, I really enjoyed this cross-over. It's a bit less campy than Batman and a bit more campy than most of the UNCLE run, so it strikes a nice balance. The plot (THRUSH recruits various Batman enemies) works, although I'm not sure why the author chose these Bat-Villains in particular as most of them don't do anything that fits their unique talents / methods outside of Mr. Freeze and the Scarecrow. (Egghead in particular seems to be there only to overpronounce any word with the "egg" sound in it.)I feel like the author got the UNCLE characters' voices right, and even worked in the show's classic opening, and the pacing of the story holds together well in collected form. The art perhaps could have been a little sharper: Solo, Kuryakin and Waverly didn't always look like the actors from the original TV show.
