Ty the Guy OUT.
It goes without saying how much Adam West impacted my life. I was EXACTLY the right age to become a lifelong fan when Batman come into our living room in 1966. I remember the Adam West style Batman and Robin costumes my mother sewed for my brother and me when the show was still on the air. I remember how excited I was to grow out of the Robin costume and finally fit into the Batman suit so I could be the Caped Crusader for Halloween in 1970. It’s no coincidence that the lion’s share of my work for DC Comics takes place in Gotham City, from the animated Batman series, to the recent Batman 66 series, starring Adam West himself, it’s always my happiest place to be with Batman.
Thanks for the recent animated movies, and “Back to the Batcave” and Family Guy. Thanks for the years of unbridled joy.
I sketch Adam West style Batman covers at conventions ALL the time. It’s likely the most common request I get. Here’s a few of them from the last year or so… I’m sure there will be many more–
