Side-By-Side: Neal Adams Revisits His Legendary Past

Side-By-Side: Neal Adams Revisits His Legendary Past

By Tim Beedle Friday, January 29th, 2016

What do Supergirl and Sgt. Rock have in common? The answer lies within illustrator Neal Adams’ newest DC Comics endeavor.

For our February variant cover theme, we asked influential illustrator Neal Adams to draw 27 different variant covers for us, and he happily obliged…with a twist. Each one of his February variant covers is drawn in the style of some of his famous earlier cover illustrations, replacing the original characters with some new ones Neal has never had the opportunity to draw. 

A Silver Age issue of BATMAN inspired next month’s DETECTIVE COMICS #49. A classic GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW cover was switched up for the cover of GREEN ARROW #49. And ACTION COMICS #49 was inspired by… Well, you’ll see.

In addition, each of these new covers was finished off by an equally legendary inker and colorist. You can check out all of next week’s variant covers and their full credits alongside the classic covers that served as their inspiration in the gallery below. Check them out, and look for our Neal Adams variant covers at your local comic shop all month long. Also, don't even think of missing Neal's brand new miniseries, SUPERMAN: THE COMING OF THE SUPERMEN. The first issue will be available on February 24th!
