Marie Severin's take on Gil for Alter Ego #10
Comics legend Gil Kane (real name Eli Katz, 1926-2000) worked in comics from the 40's right up until his death. I loved his work on Green Lantern, the Atom, Spider-Man and Conan. His achievements are far too numerous to list here, but I should mention that some consider his innovative paperback "Blackmark" to be the first graphic novel, and his daily newspaper comic strip "Star Hawks" was noteworthy for using a wonderful two-tier format. His work was always solid and dynamic and exciting, influencing many of today's top artists.

The sketch on the left was done for me by Gil at a convention back in the early 80's. The one on the right was done for a friend, who had me ink and color it in '82.
