No purchase necessary.

Fat Jack’s is also having their huge progressive sale on most back issues, and the sale beginning Sunday June 15th will increase to 65% off. We encourage fans to hurry to purchase the back issues for their collections, as when a book sells out, when restocked, it will not be on sale. 

“There are creators, and then there are living legends. Neal is a living legend. We are pleased that an artist of Neal's stature has taken the time out of his busy summer convention schedule to help us celebrate our June anniversary,” states Mike Ferrero of Fat Jack’s Comicrypt. “Our fans have been elated at the prospect of this meet & greet and the chance to win a free Batman sketch courtesy of Neal and Fat Jack's Comicrypt.”

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.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in the “Batman Begins” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul.
