THE WONDER OF NEAL ADAMS

Neal Adams The Comic Book artist who perhaps best embodies the move artistically from the bold fantasy style of Kirby & Ditko to the illustration of realism that complimented the realism and issues based stories of the late sixties and early Seventies. He worked on the big DC characters and his run on Marvel's X-Men did a lot to re-establish the characters. Along with the social based stories he was adroit at more fanciful fare bringing that realism yet with dynamism. An incredibly influential artist Neal Adams was almost the first of a new breed of Comic Book artists.
