Neal Adams, covered: Famed artist reflects on his classic covers

Posted in: Comic-Con,Comics,Hero Complex: The Show

For comic book fans of the 1960s and 1970s, the name Neal Adams was an especially electrifying signature to see on a cover — there was no artist in the era that was more distinctive or dynamic than the man who brought an especially evocative commercial art sensibility to Batman, Green Lantern and the X-Men. For the newest episode of “Hero Complex: The Show,” we talked to Adams about some of his most memorable covers and the unpredictable art of superhero iconography. The interview, the first of two parts, was conducted on the floor of Comic-Con International in San Diego — it was on the convention’s second day in the hour before the show opened, in case you were wondering why the crowd was so thin.
