The brightest Batman would have been 89 today.
It seems strange to write a tribute to Adam West when so much was written and said just three months ago when he died.
But there was no way I was going to let today pass without marking what would have been his 89th birthday, such was his impact on me and, in all likelihood, you.
So, in addition to today’s announcement that artist Andy Fish would be reviving Batman ’66 as a free webcomic — click here for more on that — below you’ll find a series of links to interviews and tributes celebrating the greatest of Caped Crusaders.
It’s sort of a greatest hits selection. If you’ve read these pieces, that’s cool. Feel free to enjoy them again. If you’ve not, even better. Here’s another chance to celebrate a larger than life personality who meant so much to so many:
