Format: Hardcover
Much of the marketing surrounding the launch of Vanguard's retrospective of Neal Adams' work has heralded the epigram "this is the one we've all been waiting for" and, if you are remotely interested in purchasing this item, your first concern will probably be whether this pronouncement is actually true. Well it is and it isn't.

This is certainly far more along the lines that Adam's fans have anticipated, having only been offered collections of finished, colour strips in his various DC compendiums and a handful of sketches in other, smaller art collections. In this impressive volume, many lavish, large pages are dedicated to showcasing a variety of Adam's work and the well composed layout, coupled with Adam's own personal commentary throughout, is reminiscent of Image's seminal 'The Art Of Brian Bolland' (which can only be a good thing). Many rare and unpublished works of interest are included and, as a career retrospective, this book is extremely comprehensive.

However, unlike the aforementioned Bolland title, this book comes a little short of the mark in its duties as a gallery of Adams' finest work. We are treated to only one double-page spread of the artist's work on the X-Men series and very little of his Batman artwork - mostly merchandise designs for 'Batman Forever'. In fact, Adams' mainstream comic-book work is the subject of only one of about 8 equally long chapters, the rest dedicated to early or more obscure work. That is not to say that the quality of this work is poor - often, particularly in his paintings, we see his best efforts outside of the mainstream market, but those expecting lush black and white reproductions of his art from familiar super-hero titles may be somewhat disappointed.

An exquisite artwork selection from an illustration master! 25 Nov. 2011
By CARLES AYALA POCH - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The superb craft of Neal Adams is paramount between comic and illustration artists. His exceptional drawing style, defined by a very fine delimitation of volumes and sharp lines, so neat and tidy and beautiful... that give a very special feeling to every comic page or full illustration. The commentaries are made by Neal himself. That's an extra incentive to buy it! Due to the large amount of artwork produced by Neal I will expect a series of books collecting more artwork. This one is only a zero volume of that series.
It is a book that every comic and art lover must have!
I did not keep it because of packaging defects. Twice the book arrived with a smashed corners and intolerable scratches. I'm looking forward to get a nice copy!

What can I say Neil Adams is a Giant 1 Aug. 2011
By rwrand56 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Neil Adams is one of the best and most talented art in comics of all time. He brought a realism to comics that was
just not there till he start in the industry. The action and power of his work is amazing. Just wish it would have had more examples of his work

Adams Is Always Great, But... 30 May 2011
By Graphic Reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've purchased more than a half dozen of Adams collections over the years and none have hit the sweet spot. Looking for a good balance between image archive and scholarship. Still waiting for something as unique and entertaining as Adams, himself.
