Neal Adams appeals to cabbies to help return original artwork

Legendary comic book artist Neal Adams accidentally left two portfolio bags in a taxi earlier this month containing original artwork worth tens of thousands of dollars. He’s hoping they’ll be returned.

From the New York Post:

“The lack of certain details presents a challenge,” said TLC spokesman Allan Fromberg, a longtime fan of Adams. “But we’re going to do everything in our power to reunite Mr. Adams with his portfolios.”

The family handed out fliers to cabbies on Park Avenue with the sketch of the driver and scans of about 40 images. They urged them to check their trunks.

Here’s the flyer he created.

Waiiiit a minute! I checked the Way-bac machine and Neal Adams fell asleep in the subway back around 1973 and someone “stole” his portfolio. Big story at the time. But now I think he’s running a scam of some kind.

A strange story to be sure…I thought the necessity of carrying around an actual physical portfolio had been phased out long ago.

?The lack of certain details presents a challenge,?

Really.

And WHAT details would that be?
