As you may have heard, the legendary Neal Adams has passed. Due to complications from sepsis. Most well known, of course, for his work on Batman, Green Lantern and Green Arrow, and Superman vs. Muhammad Ali. He was 80. You will be missed, sir!  Cry

Indeed a great loss for comics fandom, especially those of a certain age.  Many of the first Superman images to sear themselves into my young brain were created by Adams: Superman flying left to right with his left arm extended on the cover to Superman #252...a figure later added over the book's title for many months, and featured on one of the first jigsaw puzzles I ever assembled.  Superman running with his arm extended in a "punch" on merchandise from school supplies to bed sheets to t-shirts.  Superman breaking those Green-K chains on the over of issue #233.  That little Superman head that showed up on the JLA "roll call" on many covers.  Adams will always be remembered for his Batman, but his Superman was every bit as awesome.

Anyone still reading these boards (you MUST be out there...) will probably remember my tribute on my "Confessions of A Superman Fan" page (http://davidmorefield.com/superman/artists/sm-nealadams.htm).  I also added a farewell tribute on my personal blog, if anyone's interested: http://davidmorefield.com/rip-neal-adams/


RIP Neal

Nightwing, are you still on Facebook?

Since Facebook recently deleted the Superman Through the Ages! Facebook page, I guess I'll be posting stuff here instead.

Nice to see there are others.

And many thanks for posting the link to your blog.

I bailed on Facebook about 9 years ago, and I've never regretted it.  But I guess that's where STTA was all this time. LOL

I'm willing to try and resurrect the message board as time allows.  I'm very much a semi-Luddite.  For me, the internet peaked in the mid-90s and I'm still pretending "social media" never happened.
