Batman #1: Mike Grell Tribute to 1966 Batman - Adam West & Burt Ward

Post by thebionicbigfoot » Fri Nov 30, 2018 4:50 pm

Here is the tribute done by the very talented Mike Grell. It is a tribute to Batman #1 featuring Adam West and Burt Ward. Mike stayed true to the cover with slight modifications to accommodate the two characters which included Burt Ward. The original is part of my permanent collection.

Hope the board enjoys. Troy R. Kinunen, 414-828-9990 or email troy@mearsonline.com

That is a very cool piece of artwork. I love the text "30 minutes of action" replacing the original 64 pages of Action. Was that your idea or Mr. Grell's?

"30 Minutes of Action" was the idea of the brilliant Mike Grell. The overall theme was my request, but Mike added all of the details.

Here is the rest of the of the 1966 Batman Original Art in my collection done by both Marvel and DC artists that worked in the 1970s or earlier. Neal Adams, Don Perlin, Joe Staton, and many other great have contributed. Here they are:

Wow, what a collection. I converted my silver age Batman and Robin on the Rooftop statue to a 66 appearance and it looks like your commissioned art

Would love to see your roof top conversion statue. This piece was also done by Mike Grell. The late Fred Westbrook arranged for me to have my collection signed. I have long term plans to exhibit the collection. Regards, Troy
