Writer/artist, Batman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow

Neal Adams had legendary runs on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. He 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’s Batman. His run led directly to the realistic incarnation seen in Batman Begins and the Dark Knight movies. His Batman: Odyssey series blasted into new horizons of the comic book medium. Adams followed Odyssey with Blood (published by Dark Horse), The First X-Men (published by Marvel), and the upcoming The Invasion of the Supermen to be published by DC.
