Description:
Gil Kane and Joe Sinnott (with John Romita Sr. Touch-Ups) The Avengers #134 Human Torch and Mad Thinker Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1975). The art team of Silver and Bronze Age legend Gil Kane and Joltin' Joe Sinnott is a Marvel match-up made in heaven. In this fan-fave yarn, the Vision's trip through time marches on as the Synthezoid Avenger discovers the sad fate of the original Human Torch. After going nova in the 1950s, the Torch's body remained dormant and missing for many years until the Mad Thinker located it. The image area of this cover thriller for the "Origin of the Vision" measures 10" x 15", and aside from a missing pasted-on word balloon below the Thor figure, the art is in Excellent condition.

Kane, Gil:Eli Katz, who worked under the name Gil Kane and in a few instances Scott Edwards, was a comic book artist whose career spanned the 1940s to 1990s and every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as a groundbreaking arc in The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98 (May-July 1971) that, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name is...Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame. . Comic Art
