Archie Meets Batman '66 #2

With Batman's most fearsome villains (the Joker, Catwoman, the Riddler, the Penguin, and others) relocating to Riverdale for easier pickings, the Dark Knight Detective sends Robin and Batgirl in undercover as transfer students to Riverdale High. Meanwhile the villains, confounded by the sheer number of teenagers in the small town, set to recruiting new henchmen and discover there are some bad apples everywhere, even in Riverdale.

The mashup of the the 60s Batman TV-series and the pre-Riverdale gang provides all kinds of fun as the tones of both mesh perfectly.

With help still on its way, Archie and the gang try to figure out what has happened to all the adults in town who are acting out of character (it seems the Siren has swayed their minds and hearts, but her powers prove to be inadequate over the teen population). Hmmm, sounds like a convenient way for Arhie and company to help save the day. I'll be curious to see where things go from here. Worth a look.
