Batman 66 #12

"The Queen of Diamonds' Big Heist"/"To Be or Not To Be"

Published: June 25, 2014

We're back to a two-parter and backup story with two villains created for the series.  First, Marsha, Queen of Diamonds has a new plan to get her hands on the Bat-Diamond.  Then, the Minstrel robs Wayne Manor and takes only one thing - the Shakespeare bust!

John and Dan discuss the likeness issues of the characters in these stories, how John liked a story with a character he doesn't like and was disappointed by a story with a character he loves, and how far filling in the gaps of the Batman 66 series one should really go.


Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of, 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.
