Batman Preview Art Features a Throwback to Iconic ’66 Theme Song

Batman Preview Art Features a Throwback to Iconic ’66 Theme Song

Beginning with Batman #48, the Caped Crusader will be forced to deal with an unwelcome visit from the Clown Prince of Crime before Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle officially tie the knot in Issue #50. However, while this should prove to be nothing short of a headache for Batman, the pre-wedding hijinks certainly have The Joker singing a happy — and unmistakable — tune.

On Twitter, writer Tom King revealed one of artist Mikel Janin’s pages from the upcoming “The Best Man” arc, which will run through Batman #48-49. As The Joker clutches his pistol from inside a chapel, we see him singing the iconic theme song to the hit 1966 Batman television series, which starred the late Adam West.

In addition to “The Best Man,” Batman and Catwoman’s wedding will be preceded by five one-shots titled Batman: Prelude to the Wedding, which will be published through May and June. Tim Seeley will pen each issue, with a different artist joining to chronicle the adventures of Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood and Harley Quinn. Each cover for “Prelude to the Wedding” will come with an interlocking cover by Rafael Albuquerque.

Batman #48, by Tom King and Mikel Janin, goes on sale June 6 from DC Comics.
