WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8 @ 6:00pm EST:
In 1978 DC Comics published what one man in particular believed was the crowning achievement of legendary comic book artist Neal Adams’ career, the tabloid-sized, 73-page epic, Superman vs. Muhammad Ali. That man was Neal Adams himself!
Yes, Adams went on record as saying that he thought the offbeat, unique, one-shot extravaganza that was Superman/Ali was his best single comic book work–which was of course saying a lot, as Adams’ career was star-studded with so many spectacular works of groundbreaking comic book art that it’s taking more than seven separate webinars in an impossible task to spotlight them all!
So join comic book historian (writer/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) and Adams aficionado (editor/designer, The Neal Adams Sketchbook) Arlen Schumer (who also worked for Adams at his Continuity studio, and moderates the Facebook group Neal Adams Almanack) as he not only takes you through a tour of the classic Superman/Ali book–interspersed with behind-the-scenes thumbnail sketches, pencils, and inked pages–but also covers Adams’ significant body of Superman works that preceded Superman/Ali, which include some of the most recognizable and beloved images of Superman ever created!
