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.

Author Marc Tyler Nobleman appears at Tifereth Israel Congregation on Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM!
Superman’s Jewish Roots
In discussing Boys of Steel, Marc will address the Superman/Moses parallel, the curious possible origin behind Superman’s Hebraic-sounding Kryptonian name, the truth about whether or not Hitler himself personally banned Superman comics, and why Joe Shuster could not draw on the day before Shabbat, plus much more. His presentation will include images from Superman and other comics to illustrate his points as he discusses two young Cleveland Jews and their enduring contribution to American pop culture.
A Very Special Birthday
February 8th would have been the 100th birthday of Bill Finger, the secret co-creator of Batman. As part of the presentation Marc will share the results of his research into this relatively unknown writer who influenced the Dark Knight as much as the publicly credited creator Bob Kane. This research led to the publication last year of “Bill The Boy Wonder”, a controversial picture book that addresses the writer’s Jewish background on the very first page.
Stay For The Dessert
Later in the evening we’ll be serving up soda shoppe classics including egg cremes, root beer floats, and ice cream sodas. Have a slice of warm apple pie or your choice of other desserts to finish off the evening right. During dessert Marc will be happy to continue the conversation from his talk and sign copies of his books.
