RIP Adam West, 1928-2017

The sixties’ Batman may not have come back into vogue, but it has found a newfound appreciation and, dare I say it, respectability that it’s been lacking from popular culture for far too long. I’m glad that Adam West was able to see the show find yet another generation of fans. Sometimes I hear Olan Soule as the voice of Batman when I read old comics, and sometimes I hear Kevin Conroy, but among the men who have worn the cape and cowl in films and television, Adam West has always been the one and only Batman. His is the only Batcave that makes any sense, and his Batmobile the very best of all the cars. Our condolences to Mr. West’s family and friends.
