    Adam West is the greatest BATMAN as for as I'm concerned. I was born in the 60's & only recall the series in re-runs. I have enjoyed all of BATMAN 66 products. I really wished that there was recordings of the 1966 BATMAN just as they aired in the 60's, that would be cool.

    Asking what got me into Batman is like asking what got me into drinking water or watching television. If you read comic books, or at the very least a causal consumer of popular films and cartoons, coming across him is unavoidable.

    My first exposure had to have been Superfriends; it inspired me as a kid to draw up my own little comics featuring DC's heroes. My obsession didn't really kick in until Batman: The Animated series, and I've been hooked ever since (not enough to buy Snyder or King, but still)!

    Definately the Adam West series. When I was a little kid, that was high drama!!

    The first comic book Batman I read was an issue of BATMAN that dealt with people pretending to be blind beggars. Thatís all I remember about it.

    I am, by far, a Superman fan first and foremost. Having said that, my favorite comic book of all time is a Batman issue and that issue is what got me into Batman. No comic has came close to the coolness of Batman #400. I was maybe eight when I came across this issue in a spinner rack at my local IGA grocery store. It featured Raís letting all of Batmanís villains and had like seven chapters drawn by some of the best artists of that time. Itís an all time great in my book, and itís what made me love Batman.

    This was probably the two part "Operation Blindfold"/"Blind as a Bat" in BATMAN 204 (August 1968) & 205 (September 1968)--one of the most significant events in all of Batman history.



    Prior to 204, every issue of the BATMAN title gave credit to Bob Kane with that "by Bob Kane" box--this one didn't have that. Up to that point National Periodicals (DC) had a contract with Bob Kane to always have his art in each issue of BATMAN and some issues of DETECTIVE COMICS--giving Bob a job for life. This didn't mean that Bob always did the art himself--he had other artists do it for him as his "ghost" or sometimes DC had an artist do it for them--but that "Bob Kane" box always had to be there.

    Carmine Infantino, who had been doing the Batman art in every other issue of DETECTIVE (which usually ran without any credits), had gotten the position of Editorial Director and he made a deal with Bob Kane that they would still pay him but they would get their own artists to work on the comics and Bob would have nothing to do with it (and no credit box).

    This also happened when there was a shake up all over the DC books. The result is Frank Robbins and Irv Novick were moved onto BATMAN, while Robbins and Bob Brown came onto DETECTIVE. The "Operation Blindfold" story was an amazing story. The layouts by Novick were spectacular and Robbins provided a gripping plot that had Batman and Robin using their great gifts as detectives and on the run from the police. As well, the change in the nature of story telling was probably a response to the backlash against the camp TV show Batman, which by 1968 had worn out its welcome and been cancelled by the time issue 204 came out.

    For myself, I first got into Batman in January 1966, feverishly excited for this new TV show called "BATMAN" which I knew nothing about. And our whole street was alive with excitement for the new show--each little boy (there was a lot of us) vibrating with an anticipation we couldn't contain and murmuring "Batman is coming, Batman is coming." I still remember that moment when it came on our black & white TV and feeling like my small body would explode.

    The BATMAN TV show became my life from then on for the next couple of years or so. I was a freak for everything Batman, buying as much as I could afford with my small savings, getting the bubblegum cards, reading the newspaper strip, begging my parents for Bat-stuff. It's strange that I didn't get around to buying the comics for almost a year. Although, to be fair, I didn't know at first that Batman had a comic book and when I did find out I mainly read him in comics borrowed from other kids, before I dug in my pockets and raided my piggy bank to buy the new comics in the drug store.

    I believe that I got into Batman when I watched the Justice League (TV series).

    With Hush being released and a lot of Bat stuff on the horizon, I'm wondering if people were introduced to the Batman universe through a character of his mythos.
