Giant-Size THOR! 1975 Gil Kane Cover Art Sketch! Volstagg! Marvel Comics!

Take a grand and glorious glance at this piece of Bronze Age greatness! Here is Gil Kane's stupendous sketch for the cover of the 1975 oversized block-buster, GIANT-SIZE THOR #1! Gil was Marvel's cover designer and creator during much of the 70s, and this cover sure tells us why! Thor and his awesome Asgardian buddies have never been depicted in a more dramatic and exciting manner, full of Gil's trademark flexibility and action! Too bad inker Mike Esposito tended to "iron out" a great deal of that natural fluidity and organic feel! Click to enlarge, by Odin!
