It's a crossover decades in the making.

DC Entertainment is launching a new miniseries based on the Adam West's classic Batman TV show and Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman TV series. The 12-issue Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77 series will launch digitally Nov. 23, with an issue being released every other week, with it later being offered as a six-issue print series in January. The announcement was made during the Wonder Woman 75th anniversary panel at New York Comic Con Friday.

Batman '66 writer Jeff Parker and Wonder Woman '77 writer Marc Andreyko are co-writing the series, with art from David Hahn and Karl Kesel and cover art by Michael Allred. 

Andreyko teases that the series will span 30 years, with the heroes fighting "an ancient evil across the decades."

"We’ve planned lots of twists, cameos and surprises along the way that fans of both series will appreciate," he said in a statement.

The description for issue No. 1 should be enough to intrigue fans, with it confirming the Dark Knight and Wonder Woman go way, way back: "What mysteries are hidden in the book Ra’s al Ghul just hired Catwoman to steal? And why does this caper lead Batman down memory lane — to his childhood fight against actual Nazis?! Witness his first encounter with one of the greatest heroes the world has ever known: Wonder Woman!"
