Neal 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 the present “Avenging Knight” 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.
Written and drawn by Neal, “Batman Odyssey” is a thirteen issue series, out now in graphic novel form. For Marvel he penned and drew “The First X-Men”, a five issue series.
