Comic industry pays tribute to Adam West

Plus the Bat Signal flew over Los Angeles to remember the Batman actor.

Adam West, the actor that defined the *POW* *BAM* Batman of the 1960s passed away on June 9 at the age of 88 after a brief battle with leukemia.

The West family is encouraging fans to make a donation to either the Adam West Memorial Fund for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Camp Rainbow Gold.

Last night, the bat signal was activated to shine over Los Angeles in honour of the late actor.
