Adam West as Batman in 1985

Chris Curley sent in these great shots of then 57 year old Adam West still looking pretty darn good in his Batman gear. This is from a car show in Chicago, West must have been on a tour that year. Batman was being heavily syndicated and I remember him popping up in my own city around the same time.

The awesome TV Batmobile.

In about 3 years, West would no longer be allowed to wear the costume in public appearances.

Thanks a bunch for the great pics Chris!
If you have something to add to the Superhero Mall Appearance Gallery please drop us a line, we'll happily feature them.

Adam West is gonna be at a Comic Convention here in Winnipeg next October, and I'm really looking forward to meeting him.

I'm doing a lot of the artwork for that convention, and did this illustration for one of the poster designs for it:

Thanks! I'll post a link to the final version - it uses both the Adam West image and one I drew of Julie Newmar (as she's also appearing at the Con) once it's been approved.

Hell, I think that Adam West made most of his living doing promotional Batman appearances through most of the late 1970's and early 80's. I remember seeing him in at least a couple of different car shows in Cleveland, Ohio during this period.
