Neal Adams is among the most renowned artists of the Silver Age, cultivating a naturalistic style for DC Comics characters including Batman and Green Lantern. He has received numbers awards, such as multiple Alley Awards and Shazam Awards, and he was inducted into the Harvey Awards' Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999. Adam’s influence is widely recognized today, with artists such as Alex Ross commenting that “he changed comics forever” (CBG, #1621, p152).

"I’m extremely thrilled and excited to have Neal Adams, one of the top creators of our time, at the CGC booth, and even better that this will raise money for a great organization" said Steve Borock, CGC's president and primary grader.

"What a surprise…that comic collecting has become official. CGC and the people there who grade and authenticate the comics are honest and fair. They grade the books but have nothing to do with setting the price. That's up to you and me, and it's CGC that stands behind us." commented Neal Adams. Neal Adams can also be seen during the convention at Booth #1829. If you are unable to attend the San Diego Comic-Con, visit his website www.NealAdams.com.
