50 Years of Neal Adams' Batman


Saturday April 20, 2019 - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of Hall-of-Fame comic book artist Neal Adams beginning his four- year-plus stretch of stunning solo Batman stories that, following the damage done to the character by the campy TV series, rebooted Batman back to his original roots as a creature of the night, transforming the “Caped Crusader” into the “Dark Knight” we have known and loved ever since. Teamed with DC Comics writer Denny O’Neil and others, Adams’ dynamic draftsmanship and visual virtuosity birthed a body of Batman stories that many consider the definitive version of the 80-year-old character. Join comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he revisits, and rejoices in, the fabulous first year of Adams’ historic Batman run.
