Adam “Batman” West, 1928-2017

Batman66byJTJR2017

There have been different takes on Batman over the years since his introduction in Detective Comics #27 (1939).  Adam West’s take from the 1960’s TV show was probably my first introduction to the character, if not the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton take.  I use to watch the show every afternoon, back in my childhood.  As I grew older, I had a chance to see him in person twice: once at a convention, and again at a college event.  He was one of nicest people to meet.  When I heard about his passing last Saturday, I was taken by surprise.  I reflect back on the good memories he’s left us and how glad I got to see him before he passed away.  Rest well, old chum.  You will be missed.
