Meet comics legend Neal Adams on Wednesday February 11, 2015 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm  at Downtown Comics’ Castleton location. Your first autograph is free and includes certificates of authenticity- with additional autographs costing $10. Neal will also have portfolios, art prints, books and sketches available for purchase.

Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art.  Neal 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. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured his creation, Ra’s Al Ghul.

Mark Millar is the award-winning writer/ creator of Wanted and Kick-Ass and worked as an executive producer on their subsequent movie adaptations. He is also the Creative Consultant for Twentieth Century Fox in Los Angeles, overseeing their upcoming Marvel movies. His ten years at Marvel produced Civil War, the biggest-selling series of the decade, and The Ultimates, credited by screen-writer Zak Penn as his inspiration for The Avengers movie. His Millarworld company has expanded in the last few years to include Kick-Ass 2, Hit-Girl, The Secret Service, Nemesis, War Heroes, American Jesus, Supercrooks and Superior. In 2012, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by Glasgow Caledonia University for his services to film and literature.

Dave Gibbons is one of Britain’s finest comic artists, whose most famous work is the multi-award- winning Watchmen. Since then he has drawn series including Batman, Doctor Who and Give Me Liberty, and has written Batman vs. Predator, Green Lantern and World’s Finest, as well as his own graphic novel The Originals.
