None entered.

Notes:
Due to the nature of this series, credits given for the entire issue are applicable to each individual story within the issue.

There was some controversy over this issue's production. Most notably is the absense of the original "Batusi" cover, which was rejected at the last minute. Initially, it was presumed that this was because of licensing and royalty fees, but it may be due to an unspoken loathing of camp from editor in chief Dan DiDio.

Synopsis:
Adam West, Burt Ward and the rest of the 60's Batman crew get their comics due. Just when we thought it was cool to make the movie Batman more like the comics, the television Batman gets his own comic!

Clearly the feature story of the book, it gets the most pages (18) and is referenced on all alternate and interior covers to this work. Everyone's still doing the Bat-Tusi, baby!

Lee Allred

Characters:    Add/remove characters to this story
Mike Allred

Groups:    Add/remove groups to this story

Synopsis:
Oddly enough, an at least semi-autobiographical tale that uses no words to convey its meaning. It appears to be very much the story of Lee and Mike as kids buying some comics then being inspired to draw from their purchases. It also examines the way in which the comic book characters of the Silver Age were a part of the boys' real lives.

On a simpler level, it's more or less an excuse to draw pretty much every character the duo ever liked as kids.
