#Whiletheylive Wednesday #2 – Neal Adams

Tom Brevoort, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Publishing, started a Twitter initiative called “While They Live Wednesday” in response to the sudden passing away of comics professional Dwayne McDuffie. McDuffie was a young, talented, and often underappreciated creator in the comics and animation industries. Using the hashtag #whiletheylive on Twitter, fans can celebrate industry professionals while they are still alive to appreciate the kind words. The celebrated industry pro for Wednesday March 2nd, 2011 is Neal Adams. 444px-NealAdams11.15.08ByLuigiNovi1 When I started collecting comic books and appreciating the different artists’ styles, one that stood out like few others was Neal Adams. His page flow and the way he sometimes took up an entire splash page with just a face was amazing. Adams’ Deadman, Batman, and Green Lantern were, and still are, among my all-time favorites.
