ACE 2013 Guest of Honor: Neal Adams
Neal Adams is a major figure in the history of comics. He had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams 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’ Batman. His run led directly to the realistic incarnation seen in “Batman Returns”, and the ‘The Dark Knight’ movies. Neal’s ‘Batman Odyssey’ for DC, (a 13-issue series) is coming out in graphic novel form in the fall, he writing and drawing, The First X-Men, (a 5-issue series), for Marvel, and writing and drawing an epic graphic novel, featuring his own character, ‘Blood’, that is being serialized in the ‘Dark Horse Presents’ anthology monthly. (A movie deal on ‘Blood’ is soon to be completed).
‘Describe him in one word? Genius.’ –Joe Quesada, Editor in Chief, Marvel Comics.
‘He’s a pivotal figure in the world of comics. He has positively altered the state, the ethical structure of the industry, and always for the better.’ -Harlan Ellison
‘Adams transformed Batman into the sleek, brooding Dark Knight depicted onscreen for the past two decades.’ -Brian Lowry, Variety
‘Who is the greatest living comic book artist? As I’ve said before, my vote is for Neal Adams’ -Geoff Boucher, LA Times
