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.

This is truly a wonderful and rare find! It’s an interview from when the cast of the 1966 Batman film was in Austin for the film’s premiere. The local CBS affiliate’s noontime host, Jean Boone, talks with Catwoman (Lee Merriwether), Joker (Cesar Romero) and Batman (Adam West). It’s a really special piece of history and trip down memory lane. Watch the interview here. Thanks to Martin Zamorano for the find.
