    Gil Kane and Dan Adkins - Captain Marvel #20 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). Captain Marvel has seldom looked more majestic than in the run of covers spotlighting his new costume, designed by legendary comics master Gil Kane. Dan Adkins' inks added a lustrous finish to Gil Kane's dynamic pencils, perhaps the most polished inking on Kane's work since that of Wally Wood. In his book, Gil Kane the Art of the Comics, Kane super-fan and comics historian Daniel Herman agrees, "Kane's artwork during his short run on this character, was thoughtful and handsome. Dan Adkins' inking of Kane's pencils kept with the spirit of his work, rather than obscuring it." The image area of this Bronze Age beauty measures 10" X 15". A stat has slipped off the character box at the upper left, there are a few touches of white-out, and a one inch tear at the lower border (under the caption box near Captain Marvel's left foot) has been closed with tape on the back of the page; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. Back by popular demand, the hero who wouldn't die -- Captain Marvel!
