On Saturday, February 25th, Cards, Comics and Collectibles of Reisterstown, MD, the store that brings you the Baltimore Comic-Con, is sponsoring an in-store appearance by Neal Adams from 1pm to 4pm. The store is located at 100 Chartley Dr,, Reisterstown, MD 21136

On Sunday, February 26th, Cards, Comics and Collectibles will be hosting Neal at the Shoff Promotions Comic Book Show in Tyson’s Corner, VA. The show takes place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1960 Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, VA 22102 (near the Tyson’s Corner Metro stop on the Silver Line).

And, last but not least, Neal returns to the Baltimore Comic-Con on September 22-24, 2017 at the Baltimore Convention Center! Purchase your tickets to the show here: www.baltimorecomiccon.com/tickets.

Neal Adams’ work on such DC Comics characters as Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, and Green Arrow redefined an era of comics, bringing a photorealistic feel to the pages of their respective books.

In the late-’60s, while freelancing for DC Comics, Adams also began working at Marvel Comics on X-Men with Roy Thomas. He continued to work for DC and Marvel throughout the late-’60s and ’70s, working on The Avengers, Detective Comics, and Green Lantern/Green Arrow. More recently, Adams did the 7-issue second volume of Batman: Odyssey for DC Comics, and handled art duties on Marvel Comics’ First X-Men and Harley’s Little Black Book, parodying his famous Superman vs. Muhammad Ali comic from the 1970s.

“Neal Adams is unquestionably one of the greats ever to work in the comics field,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “His influence is vast, from his industry-changing art style starting in the Silver Age to his efforts to protect creator’s rights, and bringing attention to social issues. He has a shelf full of industry awards and accolades, and he deserves every one of them. He’s one of our guests that attendees simply cannot get enough of, and we couldn’t be happier to make him available at the store and these upcoming shows for our fans.”

In addition to on-site CGC grading, this year’s confirmed guests for the show include: Neal Adams (Harley’s Little Black Book), Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl), Reilly Brown (Slapstick), Mark Buckingham (Everafter: From the Pages of Fables), Dave Bullock (The Rocketeer at War), Jim Calafiore (Surviving Megalopolis), Howard Chaykin (Midnight of the Soul); Frank Cho (Skybourne), Steve Conley (The Middle Age), Amanda Conner (Harley Quinn), Todd Dezago (The Perhapanauts), David Finch (Batman), Meredith Finch (Catwoman: Election Night), Ramona Fradon (Convergence: Plastic Man and the Freedom Fighters), Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman), Michael Golden (Doctor Strange), Scott Hanna (Wonder Woman), Dean Haspiel (Dark Horse Presents), Klaus Janson (Dark Knight III: The Master Race), Kazu Kibuishi (Harry Potter covers), Matt Kindt (Ninjak), Sharlene Kindt (Dept.
