Neal Is the Real Deal


Neal Adams is revered among comic-book fans for his dynamic page layouts, his fluidly kinetic action sequences and his stylish line work. Adams redefined the look of countless heroes and villains: Green Lantern & Green Arrow; Batman; the X-Men; and even ol' Superman himself. His work on the Avengers epic Kree/Skrull War story line is a master class in visual storytelling, particularly issue number 93's microscopic journey to the inside of the android superhero Vision; nothing any filmmaker attempts is going to rival the beauty or the thrills Adams wrought with a pencil, Bristol board and his magic hands. Come meet the master himself from 4 to 7 p.m. today at Star Clipper (6392 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-9110 or Adams will have prints, books and sketches for sale, and advance commissions are available (e-mail for details). Admission is free and so is the first autograph; additional autographs are $10 each.
Wed., April 2, 4-7 p.m., 2014
