The Art of Neal Adams Book Review
About the Book: From his Ben Casey newspaper strips to Creepy magazine work to groundbreaking comic books, Adams' work serves as an inspiration for every illustrator who works in the field to this day. His topflight 60s and '70s Marvel and DC work are perennial sellers in infinite repackaging. Coinciding with the launch of his Continuity Studio, Adams expanded into cutting-edge advertising work, amusement park ride design, magazine illustration, animation, and paperback book covers. Included in this collection are classic and rare works spanning the artist's noted career and a unique selection of Neal's seldom-seen paintings. Fully annotated by the artist.
Our Take: Neal Adams is one of the most prolific and talented comic book artists of the past quarter century. His work in fantasy, horror and savage art is world-renowned, but my favorite examples of his work come from the iconic world of Dc Comics' Batman! Not only was he responsible for a good portion of the merchandise designs from the Batman Forever movie, but he co-created Ra's Al Ghul with Dennis O'Neil! His talents gave the iconic villain a face. This new art book features a TON of artwork from all facets of Adams' work, including the Bat. A lot of pencil work and sketches, along with full-color artwork. This one is a must for any huge nerd, such as myself!
