Thought I would resurrect this old thread just to ask - did anyone ever see a tribute magazine?
I have not -which I find hard to believe.

Any ideas why we did not have one?

Have kept my eyes open for it. But haven't seen it yet. I will continue to keep keep eyes open. Adam West deserves his own face on a tribute magazine. But I have been thinking what articles what be in there. Star Trek had so many on is fiftieth anniversary, and Leonard Nimoy had three different magazines when he passed.

You know. Leonard Nimoy and other Star Trek stars were so well loved, I have expected there to bewholesale rioting in the streets when one of our TV Heroes passed. Kind of disappointed that it didn't happen. At least Adam got the Bat Signal shining in LA the week after his death. Take that Star Trek fans.

I'm giving this old topic another bump - while I never did see a tribute magazine, the current issue of Filmfax #149 has a short article, "Adam West Remembered." It's not the greatest article - in fact, it appears part of the article is missing - the end of page 37 is referencing Caesar...but on page 38 we are on to another topic!

There are a few interesting photos I have not seen, and a brief interview with Adam (reprinted from an earlier issue), but not the tribute he deserves. In fact, the tribute to Martin Landau is much better and what I would have liked to have seen for Adam.

in the recent, Justice League magazine, there is a tribute section to Adam West. It may be the best that we're looking for.

Not exclusively a memorial magazine to Adam West, but I did see this in the grocery store the other night. It's also on Amazon as a Kindle edition.

Published in late '97 so it cannot be considered a "memorial issue" - "Adam West Remembers" (TV Classic Treasures #1) has everything you'd expect in one. Great photos and Adam's "memoirs", if you will. Once again I give a huge shout out of THANKS! to AndyFish for hipping me to its existence.
