A very special guest has found his way into the BATMANLAND Cave this week. We’re joined by the creator of The Tick, Ben Edlund.

Throughout The Tick’s live-action TV, cartoon, and comics, the influence of Adam West’s Batman has been mighty! We chat with him about his love of Batman and how The Tick was shaped by the Bright Knight.

We do want to hear what YOU think about Batman. Join the conversation about Batman online with the hashtag #BATMANLAND or drop us an email

Double episodes of Batman 1966 air at 6:30pm on SBS VICELAND. Of course, if you aren't inclined to watch the show at the SAME BAT TIME and on the SAME BAT CHANNEL, you'll be able to watch the series after it airs on SBS ON DEMAND.
