Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ras Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1.
Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.

Books Inc. proudly present New York Times-bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey in celebration of his latest romantic adventure One Night on Thursday, April 23rd from 7:00 – 9:00 pm!
For one night, a couple checks in to an upscale hotel. The pair seem unlikely companions, from opposing strata of society, but their attraction is palpable to all who observe them–or overhear their cries of passion. In the course of twelve hours, con games, erotic interludes, jealousy, violence, and murder swirl around them. Will they part ways in bliss, in sorrow, or in death?

one of the great voices of contemporary American literature and a legendary artist and draftsman. Clowes is the creator of Eightball, an anthology of personal work that consistently raised the bar of comics art and literature over its impressive 17–year run. It was in these pages that many of Clowes’ graphic novels were first serialized, including Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, David Boring, and Ghost World, which was adapted to film by Terry Zwigoff in 2001 with an Academy Award nominated screenplay by Clowes. Linework NW is extraordinarily honored to be hosting the official world premiere of The Complete Eightball 1–18 (Fantagraphics Books) at our festival.
a prolific cartoonist and illustrator known for her colorful and hilarious work. A Co-Producer and Production Designer of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman, Hanawalt is also a frequent contributor to publications such as The Believer, Lucky Peach magazine, and The New York Times, and the author of the collection My Dirty Dumb Eyes (Drawn and Quarterly). A prolific and wide-ranging creator, Hanawalt also serves as co-host of the bi-weekly podcast Baby Geniuses with comedian Emily Heller. Lisa Hanawalt will make you blush, through either the sheer beauty of her craft, or her deft ability to tell dirty jokes.
an animator, illustrator, and character designer whose work can be seen everywhere from Nickelodeon’s Sanjay and Craig (where Howell serves as Executive Producer, Co-Creator, and Art Director) and Fox’s Bob’s Burgers to fine art galleries such as Slow Culture and FFDG. Well known for his distinctive drawings of spindly-legged punks, dogs, skateboards, and cool times, Howell is also the creator and animator of the Classic Tales series of interviews from Vans. With a body of work that evokes both simple beauty and thrashing chaos, Jay Howell is a champion to professional artists and those who doodle in the margins of notebooks alike.
a fine artist, author, and illustrator who well-known for her colorful abstract paintings, intricate line drawings, and hand lettering. A self-described “late bloomer,” Congdon began her artistic career after working for years as an educator and has achieved extraordinary success, working with an array of high-profile clients including MoMA, Martha Stewart Living, Chronicle Books, and the Obama campaign. Lisa is also the author of many books, including Art, Inc; Whatever You Are, Be a Good One; Twenty Ways to Draw a Tulip, and A Collection a Day. Her latest book, Fortune Favors the Brave (Chronicle) will be released later this year. Congdon’s background as an educator continues to influence her artistic practice. She has made a name for herself as a guide and inspiration to those following their passion and pursuing a career in art.
Admission is free and open to the public.
