Its hard to believe its been almost a quarter of a century since these ads appeared in The Creative Black Book. I used to study these pages like mad, hoping to absorb some knowledge, skill, whatever... anything that I could learn to hopefully make my work look more professional.
Always especially intriguing: Continuity Studio's ads, with that distinctive Neal Adams look to all their samples. As we learned from Howard Chaykin's comment, a lot of comic book artists were supplementing their meager incomes by drawings comps and storyboards under Adams' guidance. Personally, I always thought Continuity's ads were the slickest.
