American comic artist and illustrator Adam Hughes is one of the grand names in comic business. He has provided illustration work for companies such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros. Pictures, Playboy Magazine, Joss Whedon’s Mutant Enemy Productions and Sideshow Collectibles. The term “Good Girl Art” probably best describes the style of Adam Hughes. He is even considered by most to be a key representative of the new generation of Good Girl artists inspired by Petty, Vargas and Elvgren. He is best known to comic book readers for his renderings of pinup-style female characters, super heroines, damsels in distress, figures in fantasy, and for his cover work on titles such as Wonder Woman and Catwoman. His artwork can be seen on an amazing assortment of comic book covers as well as many places outside the comic book industry. His work can be found in magazines like Imagine FX and Playboy and on trading and sketch cards for sets like Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and many others. In 2010 he also published his first coffee table book showing more than 20 years of artwork for DC Comics. Cover Run: The DC Comic Art of Adam Hughes debuted at number 2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list when it was released, and is currently in its third printing.
