BATMAN 66 #35 Review

Posted on the 28 May 2014 by Geekasms @geekasms

We conclude up the two part story of the Dynamic Duo vs. Marsha Queen of Diamonds.  The last issue had Marsha and her crew breaking into the Batcave and stealing the larges diamond in the world.  After getting alerted about the break-in, Batman and Robin rushed over to see the damage of the wall as it was caved in on itself.  Using some of the many, many tools at Batman’s disposal, he finds where the wall is the least thick and uses the ray on the Batmobile to make a hole to see what was behind it.  They send in a Bat-drone that signals them where to head.  What do you know, they find where Marsha is hiding! Can you believe it? Me either.

A little bit of a Bat-scuffle and a precise throw of a Batarang gets everyone doused with the same chemical that she used on the jewelry store robbery last issue. Batman recovers the diamond and it’s over.  This wasn’t my favorite story from this series of Batman 66 books.  It had a “villain” (if that’s what you want to call her) who was not so special.  Her crew did more for the whole story than she did.  She just wanted diamonds.  The Caped Crusaders were their normal selves with the 60′s charm thrown in.  I am hoping that the series isn’t going to go down hill as I have enjoyed almost all 35 issues so far.  The Batman 66 Meets The Green Hornet book is starting off well but that is classified as it’s own series.
