Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal 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. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured his creation, Ra’s Al Ghul.

Guest artists ANDREW ROBINSON (The Fifth Beatle), LIVIO RAMONDELLI (Transformers), RAFAEL NAVARRO, SCOTT LOBDELL, and RALPH MIRANDA appear at The Comic Bug on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7:00 PM. All of the artists will create a drawing prior to the game and these drawings along with all art made during the game will be auctioned off and given to the HERO INITIATIVE.
These artists may be the best in their field when it comes to 30-day deadlines, but how will they do at sketching in 60 seconds or less? Likewise, their comedian tag-team partners may be quick on their feet on stage, but when their mic is traded for a marker, will they bomb? Only one team will emerge victorious and crowned Sketch Fighter Champions.
Following the game and the auction, the Comics and Comics stand-up show will take place, featuring the best all fanboy stand-up comedy in the Multiverse from JOE STARR, RON SWALLOW, ED GREER, TIM POWERS, SCOTT LOBDELL, and TOM FRANCK.
