DescriptionGil Kane and Tom Palmer Tomb of Dracula #57 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1977). This beautiful Bronze Age cover was done in a "lightbox" fashion. Gil Kane's pencils were placed on a lightbox and Tom Palmer inked over them on a separate sheet. So, while Kane's pencils are not on the art, his hand is certainly in evidence. Mr. Palmer has written us here at Heritage to verify, "This is a lightboxed cover but it's also the original that saw print. I believe it's one done by Gil Kane, not Gene Colan, I had to push the blacks and rendering with Gil's stuff, he normally worked in a linear style and not as darkly rendered as Gene. I can't say the weight of the paper is a good indicator in all the light boxed covers, I remember Marvel supplying cover paper at times, but I started usually on one-ply bristol Strathmore because you could see more over the light box. Probably did more with thinner paper but not all." This highly dramatic composition featuring a skewed perspective is exceptionally clean and white-out is used only to add a brush effect. The image area measures 10" x 15". The header is a replacement photocopy; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
