Wonder Kane

As some of you know, who have read my earlier posts, I had the chance, opportunity, and good fortune to obtain some original Gil Kane work directly from the man himself. Here is another original sketch preliminary, this one for Wonder Woman # 303. The series of Kane covers shown below is a high point in the DC history of graphics, relying on a good sense of graphic design as well as comic illustration.

The preliminary is, obviously, a mirror image of the final art, but interestingly, Wonder Woman's hand didn't translate very well to the final art, in my opinion ending up being out of scale and weakly drawn.

Gil sure did some great work at DC. him, Carmine infantino and Murphy Anderson were the gods at DC for me!
