The Fine Art of

One of the greatest, most well-known comic artists of all time and a living legend. Known for helping to create the definitive modern imagery of such iconic comic characters as Superman, Batman, and Green Arrow.



Now, after more than 50 years in comics, this great American artist brings his formidable skills as a craftsman and an orator to bear as he explores new avenues in fine art for the medium in which he is immortalized!

Born June 15, 1941 on Governors Island in New York City, Neal Adams attended the High School of Industrial Art in Manhattan and graduated in 1959. After several unsuccessful attempts to find work he eventually joined NEA newspaper syndicate in 1961, where he was assigned the comic strip based on the popular television medical-drama series- Ben Casey.


Adams made his DC debut as a penciler-inker in July of 1967 on the anthology series

Our Army at War and was soon assigned his first superhero covers: the flagship Superman title Action Comics and Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane as well as his first story, a backup featuring The Elongated Man in the Batman stalward Detective Comics. The rest, as they say, is history.


No stranger to ground-breaking work, Adams is credited with co-creating John Stewart-- the Black Green Lantern-- and was part of the creative team that brought perhaps the most unusual team-up of all-time: Superman Vs. Muhammad Ali. Both are recognized as major breakthroughs in comic diversity.
