Here is a photo gallery of Neal covers. I used Mike's Amazing World of Comics to capture and share this.

They also have embedded hyperlinks for more information on each book.
I love the Peanuts covers and they are actually what got me back into collecting comics in 1995. Not Neal or Bernie, believe it or not. As far as I can tell, the run that came from the White Mountain Collection is the best. I am simply assembling the images so I can drool over them. I may add other high-grade copies as well.
Found this in a magazine bin and easily decided to purchase it for the cover, but the insides also rewarded my efforts. Neal never did much as far as "sexy", and these can be found in the independent books he did, so I am always fascinated to find more.
I buy the Menomonee Falls Gazette because it has Ben Casey reprints in it. Easy way to find some Neal artwork. But this particular issue reprints a Ben Casey strip dated 1964. And in this strip, Neal drew a girl reading a comic book. The title of which was "The Zero Patrol". And it just so happens that 20 years later, Neal would produce a comic book with that title. I thought that was cool.
And now you know too.
If the notes are true, in Devil Kid's Starring Hot Stuff #27 from Nov 1966, there is a Flash Farrell Goodyear ad by Neal Adams. While I know he did many of these ads for Goodyear and I have others from larger magazines, I am not sure if he did all of them.
But, if it is Neal then here it is.
Multiple stores in San Diego area. My store of choice was located at 1020 El Cajon Blvd. The stores is very large. They have a large selection of modern / Copper books and some decent bronze books as well. I was able to find some Neal Adams stuff so that was great. They also have manga, POP figures and lots of merch in the comic / anime genres.

I watched these (2) books on HA for a month. I thought I might have a chance at one of them based on a previous sale but yikes. They went fast and they went big. Just fantastic copies. It will be interesting to see if they ever come back to auction.
I am a rather devoted Neal Adams collector, but I have a fondness for Peanuts books as well. My earliest recollection is from when I started to get back into comic books in 1994. I was at a convention in Detroit, the first one I had ever attended. And there, I found a dealer selling a raw copy of this issue. I instantly had to have it and it started my journey back into comic books. I later went on to have it graded and it came back a CGC 9.4. When I sold my first collection, I sold it as well.
Here is another book that I consider to be Neal's finest work. His run of "wordless" horror covers is just incredible. This is the masterpiece. The saddest part of this drool session is that I used to own a 9.6 copy. I would be happy to buy it back.
My old copy...
This journal is nothing but my own adventure in what books I absolutely want to own. My way of tracking images I find and keeping a record.
I found this on Heritage. It is a book I would really like to own someday. I have a nice 9.6 but it does not have a very nice cover wrap. But I can dream about this one.
When you lose someone, it is amazing where you find them.
The emotions form in the moment and have no guided reason.
They can be subtle, or they can knock you to the ground.
But each and every time is a gift of heart-treasure.
Just got this book in from Bob Storms of HighGradeComics. It is a VG copy of a very rare book. Printed in 1953 it is the first comic book to be titled Peanuts.
I will add pictures of the interior to document the sweet Chuck Brown stories. I have owned several copies of this book over the years and ended up selling a few to people in Japan, years ago. While maybe not an iconic cover, the characters certainly are. I think the girl is a character called "Patty" but not to be confused with Pep
I was sorting through and indexing all of my magazines and I came across the Neal Adams index from 1974. Wow, what fun. But the index does include the Archie work. It is not very defined, but titles are there. Maybe we can all find them together.
Yeah, I knew Neal; I knew him well. You see he used to draw for me from some never ending well of talent and color; creations built upon a mighty palette. A wheel that circled and changed, brought forth lines and magic for my eager mind to absorb. He would tell me stories of heroes and villains; equal to both so that neither were greater. He put me to bed and then made it fly, shrieks of terror and nowhere to hide. He penciled the man with Super powers and he did this for me so I could understan
I have put this run together over the last two years. Rather proud and excited about it. Still need a 211 and a 225. Sadly, I sold my original run which included a few 9.8's but that is collecting in a nut shell; peanut shell.
Visiting Berlin I came upon the outside portion of the museum called the Topography of Terror. It is a history of the rise of the National Socialist Party in Germany leading up to War World II. And while that history is never easy to learn, or learn again, it is a must to see and read. Being outside brings on to feel the elements on the body while the soul is forced to encounter the deeds. While no claims of the most unjust can ever be made, I found this picture, this moment in time, to be the f
