Latest Comic Guest Announcement - NEAL ADAMS

Recommended Posts

NEAL ADAMS - Attending Saturday and Sunday

 

One of the most influential artists of his era, Neal Adams got his start drawing the Ben Casey newspaper strip, which ran from 1962 to 1966. The following year he took to contributing to such of Warren’s horror anthologies as Creepy and Eerie before moving on to DC, where his realistic and innovative style radically overhauled the look of the publisher’s covers. After working on war and humour comics, he made comicbook readers sit up and take notice illustrating Deadman in Strange Adventures with his subsequent work on The Brave and the Bold and Batman [sporadically between 1970 and 1974) and especially the groundbreaking Green Lantern/Green Arrow [1971-72] garnering him legions of fans.

 

Adams also began working for Marvel, providing not only covers but highly regarded if truncated runs on X-Men [1969-70] and Avengers [1971-72] as well as contributions to various anthologies. Although he remained in high demand for covers and the occasional short story, by the mid-1970s his focus had shifted outside the comics industry although his tour-de-force came in 1978. Better known as Superman vs Muhammad Ali, the tabloid-sized All-New Collectors’ Edition #C56 was major commercial and critical success.

 

In 1984 he launched Continuity Comics. A spin-off from Continuity Studios (Adams’ commercial art operation), it sporadically published such titles as Ms Mystic (which the artist had premiered at Pacific Comics in 1982), Armor, Echo of Futurepast, Zero Patrol and Bucky O’Hare for the next decade. Other than his work on the Continuity titles, Adams was virtually absent from the scene until 2010 when DC announced he would be writing and drawing the six-issue Batman: Odyssey. A seven-part sequel followed in 2011 with the five-issue The First X-Men – his first significant work for Marvel in over 20 years – coming a year later.

THE Neal Adams?

 

Seriously? Holy Patrick McMoley! A must for me. Adams is one of my favourite artists of all time and I thrived on his BATMAN as a boy!
