I'm off to the Jerry Robinson memorial. Normally I don't take any time off during the day, but this was pretty important. To comics, to Batman and to me. I supplied a wonderful piece of art to help Jerry Robinson when he was sick. And I just want to say that we live in such a fantastic time, where science and medicine are allowing people to live longer and longer. Everyone should have the chance to get the very best medical care available. You've surely heard about the Gary Friedrich auction which will be a great place to get some terrific art and help a guy in need. Here's the letter I wrote on my own page and has appeared all over.
A letter From Neal Adams
Dear Comic Creator,
I'm calling you with regard to Gary Friedrich and the auction we are arranging for his benefit. If you wish to send a piece of artwork to be auctioned, you can send it to Continuity Studios. The address is as follows:
Gary Friedrich Auction
15 W. 39th Street
New York, NY 10017
If you would just simply wish to make a donation to Gary's benefit, go to
Now that's said, I'll get off my soapbox and get to the stuff you care about.
Next week - Batman: Odyssey Volume2 #5 ships next week. We're gettin' down to the big finish and I'm super-excited. Lots of great art and story in this issue and it leads right into the Kevin Nowlan-inked issue and then...the final issue. Written, penciled and inked by yours truly. Check out the art I've posted and I hope you tell your friends about this series.
I just handed in Chapter 8 of Blood to Dark Horse Presents and this one is great! Goooood story and new characters and a new direction. The preview is over - now it's time for the REAL story!
