Chris Claremont writes both comics and prose. His initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics’ Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. The story arc “Dark Phoenix,” with its radical treatment of the story’s central character, paved the way for the reinterpretation of superhero mythos throughout the comics industry. His work is lauded for its anti-prejudice themes, and groundbreaking inclusion of minorities as heroes. With artist Frank Miller he created the Wolverine graphic novel that serves as the foundation for the forthcoming movie “The Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman. His X-Men story arc “Days of Future Past” is the source material for the X-Men movie of the same title coming July 2014. Although best known for his work on Marvel Comic’s X-Men series, more on the way.

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.
Crusading comic book artist/writer, is hardly the group of words you would expect to hear together in one phrase. Neal Adams name usually follows such headlines as…“Battles DC Comics and Warner Communications for recognition and a settlement for Superman creators, Jerry Seigel and Joe Shuster”, and “Relevant comic books take the stage” : ”Overpopulation”, “Drug addiction and bringing down the comics code”, “Company towns”, and “Railroading judges”, are grist for Adams mill. The first black comic book superhero, created by Adams, in an uphill fight to gain recognition for minorities in comic books in America, has become featured player in The Justice League Saturday morning cartoon show.
In his spare time, Adams has convinced publishers to return original art to its creators, improve the standards of comic book production, force comic book publishers to pay royalties to its creators…All this while crusading ceaselessly against the work-made-for-hire provision in the copyright law. A provision in the 1978 book-length copyright law, that in two sentences, strips creators as creators, reporters, actors, scriptwriters, and feature writers, of their rights.
In addition to his comic book genius, Neal has launched a highly successful production company – Continuity Studios – which produces the popular Nasonex Bee campaign. Neal is also responsible for the design of the popular Terminator, T2 4-D ride, and the Spider-Man Rides at Universal Studios.
His hobbies, theoretical physics and comparative religions. An uncommon man in a popular culture world.
