Happy Sunday Morning! I hope everyone is doing good, staying home, and lovin' on your families.
Just wanted to take a minute and add my voice to everyone wishing a Very Happy Birthday to Comic Book Artist/ Illustrator Arthur Adams, that's today, April 5th!
Pretty sure most everyone knows that Arthur "is a comic book artist, Illustrator and writer. He first broke into the American comic book industry with the 1985 Marvel Comics miniseries Longshot. His subsequent comics work includes a number of Marvel's major books, including The Uncanny X-Men, Excalibur, X-Factor, Fantastic Four, Hulk and Ultimate X, as well books by various other publishers, such as Action Comics, Vampirella, The Rocketeer and The Authority. Adams has also illustrated books featuring characters for which he has a personal love, such as Godzilla, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Gumby, the latter of which garnered him a 1988 Eisner Award for Best Single Issue."
"In 1994, Arthur joined a group of creators that included Frank Miller, John Byrne and Mike Mignola to form Legend, an imprint of creator-owned comics published by Dark Horse Comics, through which Adams published Monkeyman and O'Brien, a science fiction adventure series featuring archetypal sci-fi monsters that Adams wrote and illustrated."-with help from wikipedia
Happy Birthday Arthur!
