|Meeting Adams in November, 2013|
I am shocked and saddened to hear that Neal Adams passed on Thursday.
From The Hollywood Reporter.
Adams' work looms large for all comics fans, and for us Superman and Batman fans, it's seminal work. Of course he's covered all sorts of other things. Jamie has an Adams' Wonder Woman print on her office wall. But to me he's the guy who brought Muhammad Ali to the DCU and advocated for Siegel and Shuster to be recognized financially and as creators when Superman: The Movie was in production.
He brought an illustrative realism and humanity to his characters that pushed all of comics to a new level when he arrived, and he never quit pushing boundaries as an active creator right up to his passing.
Do yourself a favor and look for some Neal Adams comics.
