Meet comics legend Neal Adams at 99 Issues Comics on Wednesday, February 19th from 5:00 pm till 7:00 pm! The first autograph is FREE! (Additional autographs are $10 each) Portfolios, Art Prints, Books and Sketches will be available for purchase! We are also taking on commissions so now is the time to get a piece of art drawn up by Neal Adams. Maybe get a Batman: Black & White variant blank with a Batman head sketch drawn on it.

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, Avengers, 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, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an eight page story in Batman: Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.
