Adam Hughes (born May 5, 1967) is an American comic book artist known mostly for his voluptuous, pinup-style female characters, and his cover work on titles such as "Wonder Woman" and "Catwoman".

Career

Hughes was born in Riverside, New Jersey. He was mostly self-taught and started his career at the age of 19. In 1987, he penciled two short stories and the first issue of the character Death Hawk, created by Mark Ellis. In 1988 Hughes' work appeared in Comico's "Maze Agency" with co-creator/writer Mike W. Barr, and stayed on the book for one year. When "Maze Agency" was canceled by Comico, DC Comics offered him a job on "Justice League America". He did both covers and internal renditions on that series for two years, before switching to providing covers only.

He was one of the original members of Atlanta's Gaijin Studios, his tenure lasting from 1991 until 2005. Hughes then had a short stint at Dark Horse Comics, spent working on "Ghost". This series was an important run for him; this is where he started adjusting his technique, using an art nouveau influence along with Adobe Photoshop in his work.

He has also had stints on "Penthouse Comix", "Legionaires "and "PlayStation Magazine".

In 1998 he began a successful four-year run as cover artist on DC Comics "Wonder Woman", which brought him critical acclaim. He had successful runs on "Tomb Raider" from Top Cow Comics, and wrote and illustrated the interiors of the two-issue miniseries, "" from Wildstorm.

When Wizards of the Coast created their d20-based "Star Wars" RPG, he created designs for both the original and revised core rulebooks, as well as the "Star Wars: Invasion of Theed" adventure game mini-RPG. When he reused his portrait of the Jedi guardian (his favorite character) for a "Star Wars" comic book cover as a gag, there was such editorial interest that she was written into the story as one of Darth Vader's early victims.

It has recently been announced that Hughes will write and illustrate the upcoming DC Comics series, "All Star Wonder Woman".
