RIP Adam West I’m sorry to hear about the passing of Adam “Batman” West, age 88. I recall as a kid looking at him on TV twice a week. I started reading the comic books and became a big Batman fan. I’m still a fan and I still have those comic books from the 1960s to this day. I plan to meet one of the artists who worked on those books in Charlotte later this upcoming week. A lot has been said about how campy the show was. Of course, it’s not like the recent Batman movies. So what? I know it was a show that an 11-year-old kid really enjoyed and it was part of my childhood. That’s where my sense of loss comes in. Oh yeah, it was one fun show!
