This week, TwoMorrows Publishing‘s Comic Book Creator #3 goes on sale, offering comics legend Neal Adams a forum to vigorously respond to critics of his recent Batman: Odyssey series from DC Comics. The issue is available for immediate shipping from TwoMorrows’ website, and will be on sale at retailers worldwide on July 27.
Comic Book Creator #3 is an 80-page full-color magazine, retailing for $8.95. It features a unique, comprehensive examination of an artist and his work, focusing on Neal Adams’ Batman: Odyssey (the recent 13-issue DC Comics mini-series written and drawn by the comics legend), as we grapple with the question: is the book a masterwork for the ages or an epic fail of mythic proportions? CBC goes in deep with Neal to examine his intent, balancing the successes and weaknesses of the quintessential Batman artist’s ultimate take on a beloved character — all behind a new Adams Darknight Detective cover, and lushly illustrated throughout with a bodacious bevy of Batman art by the master illustrator.
This issue also features an interview with Sean Howe about his hit book, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story; presents part one of a Mark Waid interview; checks in on Harbinger writer Joshua Dysart; presents the final installment of a Les Daniels remembrance; and, as always, a regular comic-column by fan favorite cartoonist Fred Hembeck. Comic Book Creator is edited by Eisner Award-winner Jon B. Cooke.
