Neal Adams, artist for DC Comics and Marvel, dies at 80 | app

0

Neal Adams, one of the most influential comic book artists of all time due to his transformative work on Batman, the Avengers and the X-Men, died Thursday of complications from sepsis. He was 80 years old.

Adams was one of the few artists who, early in his career, worked at both Marvel and DC Comics, helping chart the visual path for some of comics’ most popular characters. His most lasting influences would be on DC’s Batman, making him a darker character that strayed from the ’60s camp, and on Marvel’s X-Men, which, despite being canceled in 1970 due low sales, was considered an artistic triumph that led to an ultimate revival, when it would become one of the company’s flagship titles.
