Looks as though the Falcon has hooves instead of feet.  Good thing he can fly.

That was his old costume. Facially, he looks a little like Sunfire.

I am unimpressed with this cover. Too cluttered. To each his own.

I think you forgot - Sal is top 5. Plus the last Sal cover at HA went sky high. No doubt incentivized someone to put this one up for auction.. Re:clutter- I think it's well composed. The eye moves around the page without much effort. Love the  classic poses too.

Im not a big Gil Kane guy beyond respecting his large contribution to comics if on volume alone....but G.D. that's spectacular.

agreed, that's easily my least favorite 0.08% of the piece.

Thoroughly average. Its been proven he was nothing special by the CGC arbiters...I expect this to go for the same as a routine Don Perlin cover, maybe Kupperberg.

God that is also really really good! I love the vanishing lined effect used on hawkwoman. This just "looks right", you know?

This is a gorgeous cover. You’re right though I know it’s coming. Average, stinks, a child could draw better.

Thats ok Sal is a treasure. He could care less about what his critics say at this point.

Yes.  The original pencil version was published in one of the trade paperbacks.   This is the first time I have seen it inked.

Judging from the location of the white out in the inked version ("N" in Returns for example) as well as other areas, it appears that Frank inked the pencil version which I posted.  Happy to hear other people's thoughts.
