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.
Last night, the bat signal was activated to shine over Los Angeles in honour of the late actor.
Throughout the week, the comic industry paid tribute over social media:

RIP Adam West. He was my first Batman. Before the comic books. It was an honor to draw a version of him in BATMAN '66 comics. (fuck cancer) pic.twitter.com/uqwej643Dn
