Arthur Adams Cover Checklist & Gallery

One of the most influential artists of his generation (the one between Michael Golden and Jim Lee), Arthur Adams has been consistently putting out some of the most dynamic and gorgeous art out there for the last 30 years and even though he's mostly doing covers these days, his work has an explosive quality to it that vibrates with energy.

He is, in fact, one of the biggest influences of most of the best artists working right now, so I thought I would take a look at his covers, in case some people out there are not aware of them. While it's true that his covers don't light the aftermarket on fire, I think that anybody who grew up with his art would get one of his variants before whatever the alternative is. Also, there are hundreds of them, so maybe this article will put things into perspective.

The real reason to do this is that Mr Cakes asked for it, of course, and when he does you simply don't refuse (for fear for the lives of family, friends and even enemies). Just kidding, Mr Cakes wouldn't hurt a fly (but that's because he's half insect, humans he doesn't hold any regards for). Blah Blah Blah … Anyway, here are the covers and the list right after the image!!!
