He was one of the first American civilians to see images of the Holocaust. His father was a GI, stationed in Germany during the clean up, and they showed images to the families.

It was done to see how much American civilians stateside could stand to see.

Adams was a child, and according to him, he could not speak to his mother for a week afterwards. Understandable, since he was not even 10 years old.

Later in life, this experience led him to create the "They Spoke Out" motion comics (not to be confused with his book 'We Spoke Out'), intended to both act as education on the topic, and to shine a light on Americans who tried to get Jews out of Nazi occupied Europe.

He also tried to unionize the comic industry.

He was also a family man, who did a lot of comic shows as a way to spend time with his son, who was in the art department on King of the Hill, and often included character design.
