EDMONTON EXPO: Adam West cancels convention appearance
Holy bad back, Batman! A guest lineup change and a personal message from Adam West himself:
“Adam West here…a crazy thing happened a few months ago in the bat cave: Bane broke my back and cracked three of my vertebra. Unfortunately, last week while I was in New York my back was re-injured. It is with a heavy heart that I’m making my first cancelation in 47 years of appearing at conventions.
…I’m quite jealous of my good friend Burt, who will now be joined by the Feline Fatale Julie Newmar, Supernatural’s Misha Collins, and the 6 million dollar man himself, Lee Majors.”
Special Guests, including: Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man), Julie Newmar (Classic Catwoman), Burt Ward (Classic Robin), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian in Star Wars; Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman), Nichelle Nichols (Lieutenant Uhura in Star Trek), Casey Orr & Chuck Varga (horror shock-rock Musicians in GWAR), Dave Lawrence (FUBAR), Chris Claremont (Writer X-Men franchise), Mike Grell (CW’s Arrow), Jewel Staite (Serenity, Firefly, L.A. Complex), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase in Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer)…and more!
