Sauron is pretty eloquent for a guy transforming into a pterosaur man. And yes, he totally named himself after that other Sauron.

I finally started reading the Green Lantern/Green Arrow team up comics (‘70-‘74) & they totally love up to the hype. Very sociopolitical stuff that still rings true 40 years later. I can dig it.

Neal Adams is amazing.

Frank Miller’s “the Dark Knight Returns” changed DC comics, and comics in general for that matter. Frank Miller has repeatedly stated that his take on an older, angrier Bruce Wayne was very much so based on the Batman characterization that was established in Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams seminal tenure as the creative team on the World’s Greatest Detective.

And if you can’t see a connection between this artwork and the work of just about everyone that came into the business having grown up on Neal Adams comics, then… Well, keep looking.

Dennis O’Neil wrote Batman in the same way that Chris Claremont wrote the X-Men. It went on for decades, and mostly it was great in the beginning, pretty good in the later years, and kinda lame at the end. Read the Neal Adams Batman Archives. Just… Just read them.

Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassins were established as villains in this era. The Joker became genuinely evil instead of the mischief he got up to on the TV shown. “The Laughing Fish” is still one of the best Batman books out there.

That Splash page of the Vision and the Captain America is from Avengers # 93: right at the beginning of the Kree/Skrull War. Neal Adams is one of the most influential creators out there. He brought realism and action movies to comics.

Richard Nixon announced his resignation of the presidency 40 years ago today.  But three years prior to that, Neal Adams and Denny O’Neil put Nixon and his VP, Spiro Agnew, into a wonderfully mischievous story with the most socially relevant characters of the day. Well played, gents!
