I think I've got this story sussed. I like it because of the use of old 1960s TV shows, but most of the readers on this forum were born after 1985. Hence the shortage of reviews.
Author's Response: *Shrug icon* Makes sense.

Son of a Gilli-GUN! You had them blow up the island!
Author's Response: Well, much as I love the original series, the sequels to the reunion movie were too much like FANTASY ISLAND. So, in this divergent universe? Insert villainous laughter, here.

Wished to be fully clothed.
Glad my Irwin Allen yarn seems to have inspired the use of Seaview too.
Author's Response: Well, that was certainly how they'd have gotten home if _I_ had the been headwriter of the 1978 TV-reunion movie that NBC did for the 15th anniversary of GI.

Combined Marriage Defense Force does it again!
Meanwhile, what is happening with Adam West and James West? What is happening with Artemus Gordon and James Gordon. Stay tuned....
Author's Response: Funny you should mention the Gordons. There's a fascinating article about them at one of the Wold Newton Universe websites.

Good to see the Wild Wild West characters getting some play. There was an episode of the show that had a shrinking plot. Do you remember which one?
Author's Response: It was "Night of the Raven," which I believe was the first episode of Season Two.

Methinks there might be a Vandal Savage connection to the immortality rock.
A stark naked Bat? Will Fox remove the G rating? Will Florence move to graveyard shift movies? Stay tuned.
Author's Response: "Curtis Knox" was the name of a mad scientist--and self-proclaimed immortal--played by Dean Cain (ex-Superman from ABC's LOIS AND CLARK) on an episode of SMALLVILLE, some years back. The fictional Nicodemus flower--also from SMALLVILLE--seemed a fitting source for the hallucinogen developed by Dr. Loveless in the WWW Season 1 ep, "Night of the Murderous Spring." And, "Count Manzeppi," of course, was another lovably campy super-villain played by the late, great Victor Buono during the 1960's.

Love the gag on Catwoman's different actresses and Lee Meriwether's two roles. You've been corrupted by my gags in LOTG yarns, I can see.
Holy converging plots! Could this be what the readers have been waiting for?
Will Catwoman make a NEW MAN out of Tony? Let's hope they get married first, just to keep it all above board. Stay tuned, somewhere along the infinite corridor of crime fighters.
Author's Response: If you like that, you're bound to _love_ where I take the subplot involving the obelisk's origin...and destiny.

Gilligan's Island and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea thrown in too?. What next? Quite a multifaceted crossover and over and over. I'm glad that Mary Ann's still full sized (and open mouthed).
Will Carycomic lose track of all the unresolved plot lines? Wait and see.
Author's Response: Oh, T of little faith.

Let me guess, You're going to use the deminaturizing process in Fantastic Voyage to restore Doug's size. Loved that Filmation cartoon,and think it's a great idea to work it into this.
You seem to have Roy Thomas's writing ability to interconnect a lot of DC plot threads with others.
Author's Response: I'm both humbled and flattered by such a comparison. Especially, since I'm old enough to remember him being employed by Marvel Comics (during the 1970's)! But, while I also enjoyed the Filmation cartoon, I was actually referencing the 1966 Stephen Boyd/Racquel Welch movie that inspired it. ;-)

"I'll play," she says.
Will it be mouth play?
Will it be vore?
Will the amazing Amazon and the Felonious Feline meet?
Coming to a carycomic store near you.
Author's Response: You'll just have to wait and see, like everyone else. *Insert fiendish laughter, here.*

"Landing atop Cairpra like the proverbial ton of bricks, he knocked all the wind knocked out of her. Which, of course, broke her concentration."
HOW DO YOU DO IT. I'M IN TATTERS OF LAUGHTER.
HOLY SHADES OF CATAFRENIC! IS THERE EVIL UNDER FOOT? DOES BATMAN HAVE A PERFECTLY ORDINAIRY RUN OF THE MILL ANATOMY UNDER THOSE BLUE SHORTS? read the next episode...
Author's Response: Thank you. :-) Although, I'm embarrassed that I didn't catch that double usage of "knocked" during my initial proofreading. It takes me a minimum of two hours just to come up with five hundred-plus words! And, I _still_ find mistakes that I didn't correct before posting the chapter. Very embarrassing, indeed! :-(

Oh I love getting another chapter of this yarn. I can see our reviews of LOTG Masked Manhunt have got you going on a great new angle.
Wonder Woman and Blankenship are a good choice.
"A few years older, and...several... pounds heavier."
Tut tut, what humour.
Holy Tumbling Tut!
Will Florence bite the bat?
Will Blankenship and Heywood Kirk indulge the contest of the Generals?
Carycomic, write some more. For Batman's sake, write some more.
Author's Response: I did! I did! Haven't you seen chapter 18, yet?

P.S.---as far as I can determine, Dr. Daka was created expressly for the Bat-serial. If he appeared in any Golden Age DC comics, at all, it was probably as an adaptation of the serial. Similar to how the original KING KONG was novelized within a year of that film's release.
Date: October 30 2010 9:30 PM Title: Chapter 7
Would this be the Dr Daka from the b/w Batman serial (who originally came from a 1940s comic, btw)?
Great link to Black Widow's modus operandi.
What will Florence of Arabia do next?
Will Tony Newman TUMBLE HELPLESSLY down her throat?
Watch the next outcome of America's latest and greatest story: DARK KNIGHT OF THE OBELISK.
Author's Response: You're too kind. :-)

Oh wow, I remember that Sinbad show. And I especially remember that shrinking episode. Rumina's "close to my heart" comment gave the younger me some very funny feelings at the time.
I'm familiar with the 60s Batman show (fun but a little too camp for my tastes) but who are these time traveling characters you've included? Never heard of Project Tic-Toc.
Author's Response: Irwin Allen, the creative genius who brought 1960's viewers the original LOST IN SPACE, also created a one-season wonder called THE TIME TUNNEL. Project Tic-Toc, based beneath a dry lake bed in Arizona, had created a giant tunnel that could generate what today would be called a "wormhole." The pilot/premiere had Tony Newman (James Darren) activate it prematurely when a visiting Senatorial bean-counter announced that he was seriously considering closing it down. Leading to fellow scientist Doug Phillips (Robert Colbert) going after him. And, with both of them landing aboard the Titantic just a day or so ahead of the collision with the iceberg! The series, though set in 1968, only lasted from 1966-7. Even so, it undeniably paved the way for all similar series, from QUANTUM LEAP to LOST.

Did I forget to mention how clever the previous chapters' combining of shrink fluid with dehydrated bodies was?
Not the cat, not the cat. Make it the giantess...On second thoughts, you could have fun with Ann and Doug now that he's back but tiny (Shades of Wild Journey. love it!)
Author's Response: 1) Better late than never. ;-) 2) The scene with Cicero and Catwoman was inspired by an early Seventies TV-movie called "The Cat Creature" that starred David Hedison and Meredith Baxter-Birney. 3) Wait and see, cobber. Wait and see. ;-D

Are our eyes deceiving us? Batman and the Green Hornet drawn into a cross-time crossover. Will Colonel Gumm enter the plot? Which giantess will end up chewing the Gumm? For the answers to these and other ridiculous questions, don't watch the show. Read the Carycomic.
Author's Response: SUPER-LOL! X-D
