My earliest comic memories are the spinner racks at 7-11s and various drug stores. Although I probably didn't realize it at the time, a huge percentage of the Marvel covers were drawn by Gil Kane. I also didn't realize just how many dramatic, inventive, and memorable covers Kane drew in that period. So I figured it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to his work. I'm sure we'll be looking up a lot of noses, but here goes...

Gil Kane was my favorite Marvel artist as a kid. Right up there with Neal Adams who was my number one over at DC. My favorite combination was Gil Kane/John Romita. Could never get enough of those two.

Thanks for playing too, Batmiesta. I was hoping you'd post your Mighty Marvel Western #44, and a #43 if you have one too.

Gil Kane was an essential part of my childhood love of Marvel Comics. His covers conveyed dynamic action better than virtually any other artist. He was prolific, fast and good. The Editors must have loved him even more than I did. I loved his lizards, dinosaurs and monsters the most. :cloud9:
