A new era for the Man of Steel begins here—crafted by National Book Award nominee Gene Luen Yang. Superman is going through some changes.

Join us for an epic evening with Gene Luen Yang for this special discussion and signing of Superman Vol 1. Before Truth.

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, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal recently drew an eight page story in Batman: Black & White #1.
Neal is currently working on a Superman series for DC Comics.
