Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. He has had two legendary "runs" on the characters of Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Deadman. He has always been, and has repeatedly been forced to be a spokesman on the subject of creator's rights and was influential in convincing comic book publishers to return artwork to the artists who create it.
Adams, through the intervening years, became one of the most talked about creator/writer/artist/publisher/innovators in the medium and in the fields of computer animation, industrial, toy and amusement park design along with being an amateur scientist. His theory on a new model of the universe is the subject of a forthcoming graphic novel and a 2 hour video and is, quite frankly, the only thing he wants to talk about nowadays.

Adams said he believes in "truth, justice and the American way" and added that these ideals should be represented in comic book literature so children "do not forget that they are expected to be better than they might be otherwise."Adams discussed his science theory related to the idea of a Growing Earth. According to Adams, our planet was once much smaller than it current size, with continents of thick granitic rock covering most of the world. If one collapses the planet, he explained, the continents fit together perfectly like the pieces of a broken vase. Adams also talked about the work of Samuel Warren Carey, the Australian geologist who first proposed the Growing Earth Theory. ... More »Host: Ian Punnett
