Adam West is getting his own comic. Not Adam West as Batman or any other of the myriad characters he has portrayed over the years, but as himself. Making it’s debut in Spring 2011, the comic will be titled ‘The Mis-Adventures of Adam West’ and will be filled with adventures that blend fantasy with real life biography. As Adam himself describes “That’s what I wanted: something that was more Walter Mitty or ‘Pink Panther,’ with adventure the kids will love, and action…” Read more about the project and the rest of Adam’s interview here on MTV news.
Adam became star #329 on the Palm Springs Walk Of Stars last weekend at a ceremony held in downtown Palm Springs. The sidewalk was overflowing with fans, onlookers, press and a very proud family as PSWOS board members and local and state government officials gave speeches honoring Adam’s career. Adam gave a speech and then the event culminated with the unveiling of his sparkling new star outside the Starbuck’s on the corner of Tahquitz Canyon Way and Palm Canyon Drive. Here is some of the press from the event: KESQ KPSP

TV guide has posted a great story covering the new Fox “What’s Adam West Watching?” promo campaign as well as an interview with Adam West. Here’s an excerpt: Adam West, star of a new Fox network promotional campaign called “What’s Adam West Watching,” couldn’t be more comfortable with comedy. This is the man, after all, who played one of the darkest crime fighters for campy laughs. “They have the Dark Knight, OK? I’m the bright knight, if you will,” says the star of the ’60s series Batman. The 81-year-old actor’s cool deadpan still serves him well in duties ranging from mayor of Quahog on Family Guy to the new promos, in which he tells viewers which Fox shows he loves, with much comedy along the way. TVGuide.com recently caught up with West. The rest of the story can be found here.
