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.”
