Blood Volume 1 by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

I had heard vaguely of Neal Adams’ ‘Blood’ graphic novel and finally picked up a copy. What is startling from the start is its 3D or lenticular lens cover. For those who haven’t come across them or didn’t buy cereal with its free 3D images in the 1960s, what you normally have is a two […]

Batman Book Three by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Part of my job as a reviewer is to ignore what others have written on something I’m likely to review so it’s only my opinion and honesty. I went into these Neal Adams ‘Batman’ books, liking the art but wondering where was the spark when it actually took off? Wait no longer. ‘Batman Book Three’ […]

Batman Book One by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Believe it or not, the long river website already declares that ‘Batman Book One’ by Neal Adams is already out of print or give it a high price when I was looking earlier in the year although some lower priced ones are there again now. I noted it in my bucket list on the hope […]

X-Men by Roy Thomas and Neal Adams – Gallery Edition (graphic novel review).

Long before the X-Men became ‘All-New, All-Different’, back in the 1960s, ‘The Uncanny X-Men’ were on the verge of cancellation through lack of sales. Comicbook artist Neal Adams wanting to come over to Marvel Comics from DC Comics did not want to take on a best-selling title but one that wasn’t. The X-Men was then […]

Superman: The Coming Of The Supermen by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Anything with the name of ‘Neal Adams’ on it is going to sell in comicbooks. This 2017 graphic novel is a gathering of the previous year’s 6-part ‘Superman: The Coming Of The Supermen’. It should come as no surprise that the three Kryptonians who come to Earth in spacecraft are from Kandor, now full-size, and […]

DC Universe Illustrated By Neal Adams Volume One (graphic novel review).

When I spotted Forbidden Planet UK selling ‘DC Universe Illustrated By Neal Adams Volume One’ at such a low price and the opportunity to see his early work before he hit the spotlight with ‘Batman’ and ‘Green Lantern/Green Arrow’ titles. Reading the introduction and had National Periodicals had taken on the 18 year-old artist earlier, […]

Batman Odyssey by Neal Adams (graphic novel review).

Having reviewed TwoMorrow’s Comic Book Creator # 3 earlier in the month, I decided it was time to look at Neal Adams’ DC opus ‘Batman Odyssey’. Spread over thirteen issues originally, it was important to remember that at the opening of each issue there was going to be a lot of exposition recapping would be […]

Essential Thor Volume 4 by Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, John Buscema and Stan Lee (comic-book review).

Kirby soldiers on! For 12 more issues anyway and does a pretty good job of them, too. Just before he left Marvel, that company or Stan Lee had decided to revert from multi-issue stories to yarns that were full and complete in one comicbook. The theory was that potential new fans were put off by […]
