It’s been 50 years since the Caped Crusader jumped from comic books to television. “Batman” debuted on ABC in January 1966, and became an overnight hit. The stars of the show, Adam West (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and Burt Ward (Robin/Dick Grayson), are scheduled to appear May 14 and 15 at Motor City Comic Con at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. WDET’s Pat Batcheller reached Adam West by phone. The actor and director says he attends a few conventions a year because he appreciates the fans. Click on the audio player to hear the conversation.
