Iron Man vs. Iron Fist! 1975 Original Cover Art! Great Gil Kane Goody!

Back again with another gargantuan Gil Kane pencil piece! Take a leisurely look at this riotous rough sketch, designed to facilitate the final rendering of the cover to IRON FIST #1, from 1975! Once again, Gil's mastery of action (as Iron Fist engages in battle with a befuddled Iron Man), anatomy, and movement are on full display here, as he was the artist for Marvel's cover art during this particular height of Bronze Age fever! Click below to enlarge!
