CA – Neal Adams Signs

nealadams

Meet Comics Legend Neal Adams signs at Southern California Comics on Wednesday October 15th!

First autograph is FREE! (Additional autographs are $10 each) Portfolios, Art Prints, Books and Sketches will be available for purchase by Neal Adams which he will be bringing to the STORE signing to sell. He will also have Blank comic covers that he has done as original art of a bunch of different characters which he also has for sale at the table. We are also taking on commissions so now is the time to get a piece of art drawn up by Neal Adams.

Email Jason at adams@nealadams.com

Jason will work out characters and prices with you. Maybe get a Batman: Black & White Variant blank with a Batman head sketch drawn on it. You can also call Jason at 212-869-4170 or email adams@nealadams.com

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 Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ras 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.
