Arlen Schumer Presents:
NEAL ADAMS: 50 YEARS ON

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the entry into the comic book field of a 26-year-old comic strip artist named Neal Adams, who, in short order, proceeded to turn the entire comic book world upside down with his mastery of photorealisitic drawing, dynamic anatomy and perspective, his command of panel and page layouts, and his muckraking personality, which changed the moribund world of DC Comics, in particular, forever, heralding a new style and influencing a generation of readers—many of whom became artists themselves because of Adams’ tsunami-like impact! Join one of those readers, comic book art historian and illustrator Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art and The Neal Adams Sketchbook) for a retrospective of the early years of one of the greatest artists in the history of comic book art.
