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 by Neal Adams.

You can also call Jason at (212) 869-4170.

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 Begins, which featured the character he created, Ra’s al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.

Neal is currently working on a Superman series for DC Comics.
