Comments: Wow Poison Ivy riding a winged Snapdragon this is one incredible piece of art.
The entire comic is done in a 1966 style and feel in both writing and art. It is fun to see. The Bat Mobile is a classic beauty and illustrated to show it in all its splendor. All the things Poison Ivy has for fighting the Dynamic Duo shows an over active imagination. Not only are Batman and Robin here with Poison Ivy but also Bookworm and Batgirl. The art certainly does them all justice.
Now four certain individuals are up to no good and they have plans for Riverdale. Riverdale has become the focus of these dastardly doers.
Veronica Lodge sees trouble and she acts. She goes about doing what needs to be done when things start going wrong she calls for help. Help she reaches in the form of a certain cowl wearing gentleman.
This comic is fun, with wonderful characters used just right, the story is great as it introduces the main characters and sets up the story. The art is retro classic and out of this world fantastic.
