Batman 66 #8
"King Tut Barges In!" &
"The Butler Did It!"
Published: February 19, 2014
King Tut is back in Gotham, but he has done nothing wrong other than to steer a barge down Gotham Harbor. But Batman suspects the phony Pharaoh is up to something and he's proven correct as he pursues him through time to Ancient Egypt. Plus, Alfred's cousin Eggbert has served his time for his involvement with the Joker in the TV series and he realizes he would never have gotten in trouble if he had lived the life Alfred had. So he kidnaps Alfred and takes his place!
John and Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension get together in the Batcave to review DC Comics' eighth issue of the 66 series run. Join them every Wednesday for a new review as they go through every issue of the run and every special edition story as well.
John and Dan talk about how much the Tut on the page is like the Tut on the screen as Victor Buono made the role, the importance of getting Alfred to look like Alan Napier in this particular issue, and how much we want a United Underworld story featuring Archer, Minstrel, Puzzler and Siren.

Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
