    SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE THIS OCTOBER

    MeTV’s Late-Night Horror Show Icon Rubs Elbows with the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes
    in 8-Page Comic Book Story

    BURBANK, CA and CHICAGO, IL – (September 19, 2019) – DC and MeTV are bringing fans one of the quirkiest pop-culture mashups of all time when SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE, a series of custom inserts featured in DC comic books on sale throughout the month of October. Each two page “chapter” will be written by DC Publisher and Svengoolie super fan Dan DiDio , with an assist from Svengoolie himself, plus art by Chris Jones.

    Svengoolie has been a beloved TV staple since the 1970’s, putting a humorous spin on classic science fiction and horror films from Hollywood history. Since 1979, Rich Koz, a.k.a. Svengoolie has entertained legions of sci-fi and horror fans with comedy sketches, jokes and song parodies; the show has become a highlight of MeTV’s line-up, airing Saturday nights at 8PM/7C.

    “This is a dream come true for someone who’s been a life-long fan of DC super-heroes since I first got into comics as a kid,” says Koz. “I couldn’t be prouder to have Svengoolie standing side by side with these iconic characters. I definitely identify with them, too; after all, I have to put on my costume before I can do my job, too!”

    On the run from (what else?) an army of homicidal rubber chickens, Svengoolie gets some unexpected help from Wonder Woman and John Stewart, who urge him to get to the Hall of Justice. But before he can make it to safety, he has to survive a showdown against the one responsible for these perilous pullets, The Joker!

    “I’m a huge fan of classic sci-fi and horror movies and I grew up with Svengoolie,” said DiDio. As a fan and a publisher, I never thought I’d have a chance to have Svengoolie in our books, let alone write the story. This is a fantastic opportunity and I couldn’t be more excited.”

    Fans attending New York Comic Con will get a chance to learn more about this comic and celebrate Svengoolie’s 40th anniversary during a special tribute panel hosted by Dan DiDio on Friday, October 4 from 2:45-3:45pmET at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, room 1A24.

    The way this works is the entire month is with Svengoolie. What we've done is it's an eight-page story, which is being done as a special custom comic handed out by the MeTV folks. But in our comics it's done in two-page increments, serialized over the four weeks. It's a story that builds with a level of excitement, and a level of threat and mystery, naturally. Basically you have to read every week to get a new installment of Svengoolie Meets The DC Universe.

    SCREEN RANT Interview

    I am happy that Svengoolie gets put into a DC comic books, I was disappointed that Dan did not have him meet the Justice League of Batman '66 & Wonder Woman '77. This 8-page comic should have followed the MeTV Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night lineup with George Reeves Superman, Adam West & Burt Ward Batman & Robin, Lynda Carter Wonder Woman and the Legends Of Superheroes...

    This would have fit into the TV comic books so much better.

    So in one interview it sounded like MeTV was going to collect the pages and offer them as a comic book, well that is not going to happen. I just got finished talking to MeTV and they said no but did provide some more info:

    Look for the first installment of the four-part Svengoolie tale in the regular DC comics published on October 16. Collect the rest of the story in titles hitting stands on subsequent Wednesdays — October 23, October 30 and November 6.

    Just found out DC Comics went cheap on this, since it is a free comic book they did not want to pay for likeness so instead of going for the Batman '66 universe they went modern age.

    They also did an actual comic book they are giving out at comic book conventions. This bothers me because I do not leave anywhere near the cities that they would be giving it away.
