Neal Adams

Art

Nationality: American

Birth Place: New York City, NY

Biography:
Neal Adams was one of the first new Silver Age artists to break into a stable of DC artists that had remained virtually a closed shop for a decade or more prior to his arrival. Adams revamped the look of superhero icons Superman, Batman, and Green Arrow at DC and later the X-Men and Avengers at Marvel. He ushered in a dynamic photorealistic style of illustration that revolutionized comic book art for the modern era. He is also the co-founder of the graphic design studio Continuity Associates and took an important stand alongside Jerry Robinson as a creators-rights advocate who helped secure a pension and recognition for Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
