ABOUT NEAL ADAMS
"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
Neal's had legendary 'runs' on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern-Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from his campy TV show, and transformed him into his present "Avenger of the Night." When people say 'modern Batman,' they mean Neal Adams' Batman. His run directly led to the realistic incarnation seen in Batman Returns, and the Dark Knight movies.
He godfathered a generation of new talent, brought down the comics code by introducing "relevant comics" and gave America its first black comic book superhero.
While fighting for creator's rights, he convinced publishers to return original art to its creators, improved standards of comic book production, forced publishers to pay royalties...and crusaded against work-made-for-hire in the copyright law. In addition, Neal has launched a successful production company - Continuity Studios - which produced the popular Nasonex Bee Campaign and introduced us to the concept of Motion Comics. He designed the popular Terminator, T2 4-D ride, and the Spider-man Rides at Universal Studios.
While setting-up his own characters with various Hollywood Studios and Producers, Neal is currently writing and drawing Batman Odyssey, for DC, a 12 issue series, and writing and drawing a 5 issue series of Wolverine for Marvel.
