Who is Neal Adams? For over 50 years, Neal Adams has been 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 Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.
Neal can create a one-of-a-kind commissioned piece of artwork JUST FOR YOU! Email Jason for details at email@example.com or call him at 212-869-4170!
