Batman/The Maxx: Arkham Dreams

I can’t remember the last time I was legitimately excited to read Bat-anything. I was excited to read this. The Maxx is a hero I’ve always loved, I his much too short-lived TV run as part of MTV’s Oddities, and I loved the comic. Due to a number of factors, I’ve only read about 1/3 of The Maxx series, even with several reprints over the years, although this title allowed me to discover an upcoming omnibus collection coming in the near future. But that’s another story for another review. Today we are looking at what happens when you drop The Maxx into the slums of Gotham and when you drop Batman into the wilds of The Outback in Maxx’s head.

Issue #1 opens in The Outback of Maxx’s mind, as he gives us a brief setup of something strange happening there...

Archie Meets Batman ’66 #3

Writer: Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci

Artist: Dan Parent, J. Bone, and Kelly Fitzpatrick

Letterer: Jack Morelli

Publisher: Jon Goldwater

Synopsis: The Saga continues as the Batman villains, led by the notorious Joker continue to try and take over Riverdale. They have the adults under their control. What can they do to take over ALL of Riverdale? 

Review: Archie Comics would have to go WAY beyond the beaten path before they could get an even slightly negative review from me. This 3rd Volume in the Archie Meets Batman saga continues to stay true to form. This includes Jughead’s need for hamburgers, which has always made me love this character. This is an obvious stepping stone in the series as we see the villains scrambling to set down their trap for the Riverdale teens...
