Neal Adams

Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Deadman, Batman

Appearing all 3 days!
Legend Neal Adams joins the roster of Planet Comicon Kansas City 2018. He will be at the show all three days.

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 Begins ”, and the “The Dark Knight” movies. Creator of Ras Al Ghul , now featured in the “Arrow” series, and pretty much created the Green Arrow, and Merlyn characters we see in the “Arrow” TV show.

Last year, February was “Neal Adams Month” with 28 homage covers for DC, penciled by Neal and inked by other artists the likes of Jim Lee, Frank Miller, Brian Bolland, Simon Bisley, and Walt Simonson.

He had the Batman Omnibus, and the Green Arrow, Green Lantern Absolute, and his six-part “Coming of the Supermen” mini series which was a huge hit.

He also had his Graphic Novel called “Blood” from Dark Horse. It featured the first animated lenticular lens cover ever done in this Industry!

His 38-page “Harley's Little Black Book”, which is an homage to Superman Vs. Ali, is now in stores in a collected graphic novel, along with tons of variant covers.

Neal is currently working on a 6-part follow-up to his legendary Deadman run, debuting on the “Day of the Dead” 2017, featuring a glow-in-the-dark cover, and special gimmick covers on each issue. Neal Adams is truly on Fire!
