Description

It's finally happened: Batman must kill or be killed. The threat is real and can't be stopped by man or hero. To combat it, Batman must bring time itself to a standstill so that he can embark on an odyssey of self-discovery to a place unknown to mankind, where he can find himself. Legendary Batman creator Neal Adams takes the Dark Knight on a strange and bizarre journey through time and the mind to unlock clues to a mystery




About the Author

Considered the groundbreaking artist of the 1960s, Neal Adams was born June 6, 1941 in New York City. He attended Manhattan's High School of Industrial Art and, while still a student, found work ghosting the Bat Masterson syndicated newspaper strip and drawing gag cartoons for Archie Comics. Neal received his own comic strip, based on the popular TV series Ben Casey, in 1962. The strip ran until 1965 at which time Neal made the move to comics for Warren Publishing and DC Comics. Neal's realistic style on such strips as DEADMAN and GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW, at odds with the more cartoony comics of the day, made him an immediate star. He became DC's premier cover artist, contributing radical and dynamic illustrations to virtually the company's entire line. Neal's work has also appeared in Marvel's X-Men, the Avengers and Thor, on paperback book covers, and on stage, as the art director for the Broadway science fiction play, Warp. In the 1970s, Neal and partner (and frequent inker) Dick Giordano started the art agency Continuity Associates out of which came, in the 1980s, Continuity Comics. Neal is the winner of several Alley, Shazam and Inkpot Awards, and was inducted into the Harvey Awards' Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.




Praise For Batman

"It's completely sincere and utterly wonderful. BATMAN: ODYSSEY looks and reads like nothing else on the shelf."—Comic Book Resources

"With each page, Adams proves that, artistically speaking, he's not missed a beat. These pages are the work of a man who has mastered the craft, and isn't afraid to show it."—Newsarama
