"30 DAY DC COMICS CHALLENGE Day 8: Favourite Artist?
Neal Adams changed the look of the comic industry forever. Adams had a strong background in the field of comic strips before he made the move to comic books in the late 1960s. By applying techniques and production philosophies of the commercial art world, he spawned a generation of imitators and a radical shift in style. I would almost go as far to say that comics history could rightfully be divided into the Kirby era and the Adams era.
Although his career has been spotty in the years since, his impact in the late 60’s is unparalleled, and the repercussions of his influence are still in evidence today. The above covers alone give an indication of how impactful he was not only within DC comics history, but comics history in general."

"How Superhero Movies Lost Their Humanity"
Pining for the days of Sam Raimi, Sujay Kumar at Daily Beast analyzes why the current crop of superhero movies don't measure up to past cinema:
"Spider-Man 2 opens and closes with those blue eyes. They belong to Mary Jane Watson, the girl Peter Parker wants but can’t have, because superheroes don’t have time for that. Between these shots the camera spins from train tops to minivans to montages set to “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head.” The movie is never about bombs or bluster or universe-building. It’s about a boy who loves a girl.
...For much of the movie Spider-Man isn’t even in costume—like when an unmasked Peter stops a runaway train with his back, the weight of the world pushing down on him. Spider-Man 2 isn’t without flaws—James Franco doesn’t have much to do but gel his hair—yet it’s arguably the best superhero film in the genre’s short history.
Eleven years later, what went wrong with the superhero movie?
“It’s become convoluted corporate destinies,” Miles Millar told me. He and Alfred Gough wrote Spider-Man 2’s story (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay author Michael Chabon is also credited, with a fraction of his draft making it to the film). “Instead of a compelling movie, something which is complete within itself, other agendas are at play, which makes these movies feel less like movies and more like TV shows or product placement for toys. They’ve literally become not about finding the dramatic core or the emotional stake for the characters.”
