    Gil Kane - Original Illustration (1995). Created for the occasion of Julie Schwartz's 80th birthday, legendary artist Gil Kane pulled out all the stops on this one! The centerpiece of this one-of-a-kind birthday card is a fabulous illustration by Kane featuring Julie, Green Lantern, the Flash, the Atom, Rex the Wonder Dog, and Johnny Thunder. The art, which measures approximately 11.5" x 17", is signed by Kane and dated 1995. As is common with Kane's art from this period, it was inked with marker, and is showing some signs of fading and discoloration. Adding to the desirability of this great piece, it has been mounted on a 25.25" x 26.5" piece of posterboard and signed by such luminaries as Harlan Ellison, Jim Shooter, Irwin Hasen, Jenette Kahn, Mark Evanier, Marv Wolfman, and Murphy Anderson. In excellent condition, this is a rare and personal treasure from one of comic's greatest names.
