Gil Kane, Costume Designer Extraordinaire
Doug: Feast your eyeballs on the sampling of the body of work of one Eli Katz -- known better to Bronze Age Babies as Gil Kane. Love him or loathe him (flying butts and nose upshots), the man designed two of the greatest superhero looks in the history of superhero lookdom. I'm speaking of course of the Silver Age versions of the Atom and Green Lantern. Among many others, he also had a hand in designing Tigra. Where do you think he ranks among the greats -- Kirby, Cockrum, Infantino, Romita?
Doug: And an apology for the Iron Fist image, clearly not by Mr. Kane. I could not for the life of me find an image by Kane of the K'un L'un Kid that was to my liking.
