            Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary 'runs' on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern-Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an "Avenger of the Night." His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in "Batman Returns" movie, which featured the character he created, Ras Al Ghul.

          Beyond Comics is proud to be hosting an in store appearance by Neal Adams, one of the comic book industries most important and influential artists the day before Baltimore's incredible Comic Book Convention, The Baltimore Comic Con. Mr. Adams will be inaugurating the Baltimore Comic Con by coming to our store and autographing copies of his newest work, Batman Black & White #1, as well as other prints and books. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet one of the most influential comic artists ever.

OT: Underground comics mag find part one - A Secret History of Comics Special

I picked up a couple of underground magazines - well they were probably ground-level for the time - that are going to be passed along to MSU's Comic Art Collection soon. Before I do that, here's some of the more famous underground cartoonists from Apple Pie May 1975.

Neal Adams art on this.

Terry Austin, the great inker, apparently did editorial cartoons too.

A couple of one-pagers by Justin Green.

Paul Kirchner did the surrealist strip The Bus for alternative weekly newspapers, until I seem to remember that he came into money - Ninja Turtle money maybe?

And a three-page strip by Kirchner:
