From the late 1960s and into the 1970s, artist Neal Adams revitalized Batman in a profound way. With his eye-catching artwork and his mature storytelling skills, the young creator returned the Caped Crusader to his gritty urban roots. In Adams’ talented hands, Batman matured into «the Dark Knight»–a transformation that still resonates with fans to this day. Not only did Adams energize his peers and delight readers, but his work unquestionably inspired future iterations of Batman–in comics and in the movies.
