Here's a peek at DC Universe Illustrated by Neal Adams: The Covers, out in hardcover this fall.
Over the years, many artists have contributed to the look of comics but the most influential and popular may be Neal Adams, who in the late 1960s changed the look of comics forever with his photorealistic style that updated the image of Batman, Superman and the other DC Comics heroes for a new generation of fans.
Now, for the first time, all of Neal Adams's work -- covers and stories -- is being spotlighted in an extraordinary hardcover featuring commentary by the artist himself as well as his collaborator, contemporaries and the generation of writers and artists that he inspired.
Adams's contributions feature his illustrations of not only Batman but many other DC heroes, including Superman, The Flash, Aquaman, and The Teen Titans, as well as his signature character, Deadman.
When Adams burst onto the scene in the 1960s, his sense of design, color and realism helped influence a generation of artists and excited fans, and also inspired many writers to new heights of creativity -- which continues to this day.
