Comic Book Artist Neal Adams
Comic book purists were apalled when the 1960s Batman TV series presented the hero as a campy clown. Neal Adams to the rescue. In the 70s, Adams drew a darker, more gothic character to fight the evil plaguing Gotham.
Adams influence is still felt in the comic book industry today, not only in how artists express themselves on the page, but in how they are compensated.
