Final Neal Adams Month Cover Tribute & It’s A Beauty!

The last carryover from February’s Neal Adams Tribute Month, where the legendary artist did homages to some of his famous and recognizable covers from the past, finally arrives in stores this Wednesday, April 6th.  Justice League: Darkseid War Special #1 has Neal recreating his iconic issue of Green Lantern #87 (Jan. ’72), which was the first appearance of the Green Lantern for sector 2814 (Earth) John Stewart. Since his debut, Stewart has been prominently featured in a number of titles, story arcs, and looks likely to appear in the 2020 theatrical release of Green Lantern Corps.

PopCultHQ had the opportunity to sit with Neal Adams at last November’s Wizard World Reno, where he discussed his homage covers along with his other projects for 2016. You can read that article and interview here.
