Adams on GL/GA did increase sales, but there was shenanigans at play in the distribution and retail supply chain.  It has been written about several times, I just don't recall the details.  Robert Beerbhom (sp) wrote some in-depth articles about it and they were printed, at least in part, in earlier issues of Comic Book Artist or Alter Ego.  I no longer recall which publication.  Neal Adams also shared some information on the shenanigans at play and tried to explain them to Carmine Infantino, imploring him not to cancel GL/GA, but Carmine didn't understand what Neal was trying to explain to him.  At least, that's the story according to Neal.

If the increase had been significant, like with DD, I suspect Carmine would not have cancelled it. Shenanigans, of whatever type, can't bury a tidal wave.

Aside from the ones listed, I can't think of any artists that moved an obscure or 3rd tier character up.

Zeck. Punisher.
