(Cover A)

It's no secret that once again a dark knight and feline femme fatale are teaming up together in a Chris Nolan movie, but before they do, Bluewater Comics is reuniting television's original dark knight detective and his purrfect feline beauty. Spinning off from the popular "The Misadventures of Adam West" comic book series comes "The Secret Lives of Julie Newmar." According to Bluewater Comics President Darren G. Davis, with "The Misadventures of Adam West" making the leap from mini-series to regular ongoing series starting in December, now was the perfect time to announce Newmar's secret adventures, which begins in February 2012.

Fans will see Newmar in a new light. The story starts with Newmar enjoying a quiet morning in her garden, when she is high-jacked into the space/time continuum and dropped into the office of the top-secret organization Hour Glass. Newmar is implanted with a mysterious chip that will allow her to travel through time. Her assignment is to track down renegade scientist Dr. Vertigo and his fiery assistant Onyx who are on an extended jaunt through time that may well have dire consequences for the universe and beyond, and to bring him back alive before he can do any damage. If Julie does not accept the assignment, she will never see her own time again.

"I think comic book fans will have fun as we travel through time and space," said Newmar. "We'll visit some of my favorite memories of my life and visit some amazing moments in history."

The series is drawn by Cindy Mehrlich and written by Marc Shapiro. According to Shapiro, both he and Newmar were in consistent communication about the style and direction of the stories. "This series has been have been so much fun to do," said Shapiro. "And it is an homage to the kinds of stories that first appeared in the mid-60's. 'Secret Lives' is just a straightforward adventure that will entertain all ages."

Davis said he was ecstatic about the series. "I have loved working with Adam West and now to work with Julie Newmar has been phenomenal," said Davis. "I have adored what both Marc and Cindy have brought to this comic. I am thoroughly proud of this and Julie makes the perfect spin-off for Adam West. Both will be in each other's lives in both series.
