Adam West, the actor who played Batman in the campy 1960s series, has returned to his heroic ways. This time, however, he’s made the leap from the small screen to the comics pages. In The Mis-Adventures of Adam West, West is frustrated at the dark nature of most modern day heroes. Also, he is frustrated with his agent for showing him scripts where the main characters have questionable morals. West is inexplicably transported into one of the scripts thanks to a magic amulet that is sent to him. West leaps into the body of the main characters, and his age and appearance vary from script to script. West changes the story and makes sure that the hero in each story remains moral and upright. West is also trying to discover the orignins of the amulet, who gave him the amulet, and a way back to the real world.

Orbit: John Lennon
Written by Marc Shapiro

Kindle Edition

John Lennon, musician, legend, influence that stretches far and wide, messiah, pariah, master of wit, innovator, trailblazer… comic book character?

That’s exactly what Bluewater Productions tries to do with these adjectives and descriptions to bring to comic book life of one of the most enigmatic and forcefully creative individuals of the 20th Century (or arguably any century for that matter) with Orbit: John Lennon.

Bluewater, known for their prior work immortalizing many famous figures in its colored etchings within squares, now tackles the larger than life figure in Lennon. But, they unfortunately make the same clumsy errors here that deterred the other biographical comic book treatments that also attempted to mythologize public and famous figures from all stripes.
