Batman Returns For ‘Comic Book Men’ Midseason Premiere [PREVIEW]

Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash is back in business, and Walt Flanagan, Ming Chen, Mike Zapcic and Bryan Johnson are behind the counter for another eight episodes of epic wheeling and dealing. 

AMC's "Comic Book Men" returns for its midseason premiere with back-to-back new episodes, starting with the racy "Dragging Rights." According to AMC, Adam West, the original Batman, will visit the Stash for a race between the Batmobile and Green Hornet's Black Beauty.

No information has yet surfaced over which era either car will come from, but it is fitting that some version of West's 1955 Lincoln Futura will be burning rubber. The original Batmobile was built by the legendary George Barris just a few weeks before the series began filming. It made its debut in January 1966 (1966batmobile).

The Black Beauty used in the 2011 "Green Hornet" film went up for auction last June, and even made an appearance on "Jay Leno's Garage." The 1965 Chrysler Imperial was built by Dennis McCarthy, who also worked on vehicles for "Fast & Furious 6" and "Batman Begins" (The Hollywood Reporter).

The fourth season will resume on Monday, February 16 at midnight, with the ninth episode, "Dragging Rights," followed by "Mr. Adams," which will feature award-winning comic book artist Neal Adams.
