Legendary Artist Neal Adams Joins the Baltimore Comic-Con Guest List

The Baltimore Comic-Con is elated to announce the addition of Silver Age artist and creator-rights advocate, Neal Adams, to the line-up of guests for this year’s show, taking place the weekend of August 20-21, 2011. Neal Adams began his career in comics in the late 1950s, working on Archie Comics’ Archie’s Joke Book Magazine and on several syndicated newspaper strips throughout the early ’60s. Turning back to comics in the late ’60s, he worked for Archie Goodwin at Warren Publishing, penciling and inking stories for their horror books Creepyand Eerie.

In the summer of 1967, Adams made his debut at DC Comics, penciling an 8-page story in Our Armies at War. In November of 1967, Adams got his first crack at superhero work, illustrating Superman’s flagship title, Action Comics. That same month, he also worked on Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane and with Garner Fox on Detective Comics.

Adams’ work on such DC Comics characters as Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, and Green Arrow redefined an era of comics, bringing a photorealistic feel to the pages of their respective books.

In the late-’60s, while freelancing for DC Comics, Adams also began working at Marvel Comics on X-Men with Roy Thomas. He continued to work for DC and Marvel throughout the late-’60s and ’70s, working on the titles The Avengers, Detective Comics, and Green Lantern/Green Arrow.

In addition, Adams crusaded for years to secure pensions and recognition for Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, creators of Superman, and in 1978, he helped for the Comics Creators Guide. He was inducted into the Eisner Award’s Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1998, and the Harvey Awards’ Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.

In 2010, Adams teamed with Rafael Medoff to produce a series of educational motion comics about the Americans who spoke out against the Nazis during WWII. He is currently working on the second volume of his critically acclaimed DC Comics series, Batman: Odyssey.

“We are so happy to be able to make this announcement so close to the show date,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “His work in comics – not just his art, but his advocacy work as well – changed the face of comics for both readers and creators alike.”
