Gil Kane! Original 1976 MARVEL TREASURY Art! Spider-Man! Captain America!

More appreciation for Gil "Sugar Lips" Kane! This stellar artist was ubiquitous in the Bronze Age, and here is yet another reason why! Here are Gil's pencil layouts for both covers to a 1976 MARVEL TREASURY EDITION (a big, oversized reprint volume of past Marvel adventures), along with the finished art, inked by John Romita Sr.! All the "Marvel-style" action and drama is presented in full force in these great illustrations, showing Gil's take on Spidey, Hulk, Silver Surfer, and other Marvel mainstays, in new scenes that re-interpret past superhero conflicts and team-ups! Wow! Click to enlarge!

Apparently one of John's jobs was adding webshields and speed lines- LOL!
