Wizard World Chicago has quickly become the big alternative to the San Diego Comic-Con and this August attendees will get a chance to meet Burt Ward, Adam West, and Julie Newmar at the show.  This is the first time Ward and West have been seen together in Chicago in 25 years.

Though an avid comic fan growing up, Ward had somehow never read an issue of “Batman” when he first auditioned for the role of Robin. Quickly impressing the producers, Ward was cast as Robin alongside West’s Batman for an unforgettable three season run that lasted 120 episodes.

The Chicago Comic Con runs August 19-22 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
