Art Adams Days – DC, Marvel, Star Wars, Thundercats and more

Welcome back to the final installment of ART ADAMS DAYS (at least for now)!  Today we’ll be looking at a random collection of Arthur Adams work. I should point out that Art Adams is considered a fan-favorite artist on characters like Godzilla, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Gumby.  I don’t have any drawings from these comics this time around, but I’ll try and rustle some up for the next round of ART ADAMS DAYS.

The drawing below appeared in a Wizard Magazine article discussing the upcoming (at the time) mini-series Countdown Arena.  This piece drawn by Art Adams is worth checking out if for no other reason than to see Frank Miller’s Dark Knight pimp slapping Watchmen’s Rorschach.  Click the image to enlarge.

This was the very first issue of Daredevil I ever bought.  Now I’ve got over 250 issues of his series.  It all started with Art Adams…

Finally, here is an awesome Marvel Universe circa 1960s group shot.  Love this!

It’s so good, I gotta plug it again… If you’re a fan of Art Adams work, you should really pick up TwoMorrows Modern Masters Volume Six: Arthur Adams.  It’s a gorgeous book that celebrates the work of Art Adams and includes a gazillion obscure Art Adams drawings.  The book is in black-and-white so it really highlights his line work.  Below you’ll find the cover.  Check it out!

  1. that Star Wars cover is AWFUL….Some artists make Superheros look fantastic, but he needs to STAY AWAY from a Galaxy far far away…
