NAME: NEAL ADAMS
APPEARING: All Three Days
KNOWN FOR: Batman, Superman, Green Arrow
ALSO KNOWN FOR: Eisner Hall-of-Famer, Kirby Hall-of-Famer
Neal had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy TV show, and transformed him into his present, “Avenger of the Night” persona. When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run led directly to the realistic incarnation seen in Batman Returns, and the The Dark Knight movies.
Neal Adams’ Batman Odyssey has blasted into new horizons of the comic book medium. Comic Books are more than collected stories or incidents, or even graphic novels…but are true novels in the comic book form. Batman Odyssey was written and drawn by Neal and was followed by Dark Horse Comics’ Blood, Marvel’s The First X-Men and the Invasion of the Supermen with DC.
“He revived Batman, saved the X-Men, challenged the system and changed comics forever.” –Wizard Magazine
“Describe him in one word? Genius.” – Joe Quesada, Editor in Chief, Marvel Comics.
“He’s a pivotal figure in the world of comics. He has positively altered the state, the ethical structure of the industry, and always for the better.” –Harlan Ellison
“Adams transformed Batman into the sleek, brooding Dark Knight depicted onscreen for the past two decades.” -Brian Lowry — Variety
“Who is the greatest living comic book artist? As I’ve said before, my vote is for Neal Adams”- Geoff Boucher –LA Times
