Adam Hughes is best known for his depiction of comic book heroines and villainesses. Born in Riverside, New Jersey in 1967, Hughes began his comic career by 19 as a mostly self taught artist. At that time, he penciled two short stories and the first issue of Death Hawk, created by Mark Ellis.
After a year-long stint with Mike Barr’s Maze Agency, Hughes went on to Justice League of America, where for two years, he illustrated both the covers and the international renditions of the comic book series. From 1991 to 2005, Hughes was one of the original members of Atlanta’s noted Gajin Studios..
Hughes’ technique of using art nouveau with Adobe Photoshop was developed while he worked on the Dark Horse Comics series Ghost. Hughes has also worked on Penthouse Comix, Legionnaires and PlayStation Magazine.
In 1988, acclaim came to Hughes with his work on DC Comics’ Wonder Woman. Hughes’ success continued with his work on Top Cow Comics’ Tomb Raider and Wildstorm’s Gen-13.
With 2007 marking his twentieth year in comics as one of the most sought after artists in the craft, Hughes has been assigned as writer/interior artist for DC Comics’ All Star Wonder Woman.
