Batman '66 Teams Up With The Man from U.N.C.L.E. This Christmas

Having already met The Green Hornet and with a 1960s TV "Avengers" crossover in the works, the dance card for Batman '66 looks like it will remain full.

Via Newsarama comes word that Batman will crossover with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in a six-issue miniseries that starts in December, by the creative team of Jeff Parker and David Hahn.

"'Batman '66' is locked in a period of time, and who he meets is locked into that time period," DC Co-Publisher Dan Didio said at Comic-Con International in San Diego this past summer, when discussing the crossover with "Steel & Peel" from the British "Avengers" show.

Here's the solicitation information:
