    Awesome that LA is honoring the Batman for several generations. He was the gateway for many of us into superheroes and comic books. It was a shame that he was type cast, because he was a witty intelligent actor. So glad he got a second wind with family Guy and meeting his many fans on the convention circuit. If I lived in LA I would attend the event, but for the man that meant so much to many of us I will make a donation to the charities the family requested in Mr West’s honor. God Speed to the Bright Knight!
