Congratulations to Adam West on 50 years as Batman

We at Storm have been exceptionally fortunate to work with him in creating our mock-adventure series The Mis-Adventures of Adam West. Since 2010, he has proven himself to be gracious hero in real life as he is on the screen…or in our case the pages of our comic: amzn.to/1mZZwZZ

Here is what West recently said (in an upcoming Variety interview about his iconic role as the Caped Crusader:

“It’s a wonderful tribute. I look at these things like they’re kind of semi-homages. And maybe a bit of a reward for all of the hard work that we put in. And I just think I’m the luckiest guy in the world, really. I am. I mean, how many people get a chance to create an iconic character and one that goes on? For 40, 50 years I’ve been out there with I Love Lucy and the others…

Some years ago I made an agreement with Batman. There was a time when Batman really kept me from getting some pretty good roles, and I was asked to do what I figured were important features. However, Batman was there, and very few people would take a chance on me walking on to the screen. And they’d be taking people away from the story. So I decided that since so many people love Batman, I might as well love it too. Why not? So I began to reengage myself with Batman. And I saw the comedy. I saw the love people had for it, and I just embraced it.”
