San Diego Comic-Con

Okay, two days before issue 1 of Batman Odyssey, Thursday July 8th, and I have to admit, I am a bit excited. From what’s in Issue 1? Yes. But also, because I’m in the midst of drawing a battle between trolls and Deadman, and I know that before long, Batman will be joining the fray. The shadowy figures behind the plot are becoming just a little bit more distinct, and only I know who they are, and what’s up.

Well a few more folks, but very few. And on Saturday, July 10th, between 2 and 4, I’ll be signing books at Midtown Comics, on 40th St. and 7th Ave., and trying to avoid telling people all the secrets of the 12 issues. I know you guys are used to this, and it’s no big woof for you. But it’s been a couple of years for me, and I’m having a great time.

We’ll try to announce stores that I’ll be signing at, as we firm them up, and Cons that we’ll be appearing in. But that’s not the Big News.


The Big News is, most of the Adams Clan will be showing up in San Diego as guests of the convention. My 3 sons, Joel, Jason and Josh (with the 4 Adams’ Sketchbook), my daughter Kris and Pete Stone, the beautiful Marilyn, and girlfriends, will all be there to do business, to sign sketchbooks, and yes, we will even be doing sketches.

Yep, we worked-out that “doing sketches stuff”. So we’ll all see you there. Bring your Batmans. If you don’t have a good time, it won’t be my fault. We will be having a GREAT time.

  1. Dear Mr. Adams,
    I can't tell you how refreshing it is to see your new sequential artwork. The preview pages are great. The dynamism is hypnotic, and the draftsmanship is top-notch.

    Cheers to you and yours,
    A fan-person

  2. I agree with the previous speaker.

  3. BATMAN ODYSSEY #1 was great story telling- I love the facial expressions, but that Batmobile was insane!

    Wonderful fun!! Thank you!

  4. My guess is a 1968 Corvette?

  5. I feel that the Batmobile should be able to go through the city, without being noticed. Except that as it passes, a viewer might do a double-take, and respond at how much cooler it looks than any other car in the world, that there's something magical about it. I've always loved the Corvette. The Batmobile is kind of a souped-up Corvette, with cherry-picked qualities, and high-tech doors that actually open 2 ways. Everything else is hidden, so as to not attract attention. What do you think?

  6. I love the gull-winged doors on a Corvette.

    I think the Batmobile should be sleek and intimidating. I thought the early 70's idea of giving him a nondescript Lamborghini Miura (if such a thing can be said of a Lambo) wasn't as exciting as your Corvette design with the hood symbol. The Batmobile needs some extra little flair- something to go beyond a roadster from The Shadow or The Green Hornet .

    When your Batmobile lifted off the bridge with the Jack Kirby -tire jets I was sold. It made me wonder why a flying Batmobile hadn't shown up earlier.

    Off to a great start!
