Adam West, Legendary Star of '66 Batman, Dead at 88


Adam West, possibly the most well known Batman of all-time, died today at the age of 88. West embraced his camp role in his later years, and he always treated the fans with respect, as well as the mantle of the Bat. He liked to refer to his version of Batman as the "White Knight". 

On a personal note, Mr. West gave me my first big interview back in 2003 and he was generous enough to write a preface for my book, Batman's Arsenal. My first memories as a child are of watching the 1966 Batman series when I was three years old. He always has been and always will be my favorite Batman, even if the show is hard to watch as an adult. 

The fans will never forget Mr. West, may he rest in peace. Our condolences to his family and friends.
