New Release: Set your Bat-timers for November 11th! After decades of legal acrobatics, the 1966 Batman series starring Adam West will finally arrive on home video. All of the episodes have been remastered in hi-definition and a cool assortment of bonus features, cards, and toys have been produced to mark this special event. If you grew up with the Miller, Burton, Nolan interpretations of the Dark Knight, the 60s version may appear overly campy, but you are in for a treat, old chums! The show was a masterpiece of Pop Art design and featured sharp performances that kept adults laughing and kids on the edge of their seats. Blu-ray and DVD sets available now on Amazon. Spy Vibers can also look forward to seeing the Blu-ray release of Season 5 of The Avengers on the same day!

He passed away in 1998. Although often credited as the sole-creator of the Caped Crusader, it is more widely known today that his collaborators, Jerry Robinson and Bill Finger, invented much of the Batman mythos.
