ARP - 40 - Batman 66 Meets The Green Hornet

Batman Meets The Green Hornet in this miniseries within the Batman 66 universe. This comic is a sequel to the 2-part episode from the Batman 66 TV show. Does the comic provide anything other than a trip down memory lane? Dylan and John have a great time exploring this work and breaking down what it did well and where it fell flat. Also, John got to try out his Bill Dozer announcer voice in a special introduction to the episode.
