Neal Adams

1941- 2022

Neal Adams’ work on such titles as Batman, Deadman, and Green Lantern/Green Arrow brought not only a more realistic look to comics but took many liberties with page layout and cover design. In addition, his studio, Continuity Associates, served as a spawning ground for new talents in the field. Adams is also an outspoken advocate for creator rights in the comics industry.
