Make way for pop royalty! A hometown boy made good is coming home! Adam West will appear at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle March 1-3. 2013. The Seattle native played Batman on the camptastic 1960′s ABC television series and in the first Batman feature film.
That voice. That delivery. That style. Adam West is an icon. Every weekday I would rush home from school to watch Batman reruns in the afternoon. I watched the first Batman movie over and over.
In recent years West has become a popular voice actor on Spongebob Squarepants, Johnny Bravo and as “Mayor Adam West” on Family Guy.
West was born in Seattle and raised in Walla Walla, Washington. The iconic actor will appear at Emerald City Comicon 2013 all three days – his first public appearance in Washington state in nearly 20 years. This will be his first Northwest convention appearance in 3 decades.
Adam West will always hold a special place in the hearts and memories of comic book fans. The campy classic series was the gateway to comic books for young geeks like me at the time. No matter how dark the Dark Knight turns there is always a special for in pop culture for West’s Caped Cruader.
Emerald City Comicon will make the Washington State Convention Center a giant Batcave March 1-3, 2013 in Seattle.
