    Gil Kane - X-Men #95 Cover Preliminary Original Art (Marvel, 1975). This dynamic cover preliminary demonstrates Gil Kane's creative process at play. As Daniel Herman wrote in his book Gil Kane: The Art of the Comics, "As the artist of so many covers, Kane had an obvious hand in helping mold the Marvel house style. Just as he had helped create the archetypal look for the art for DC comics in the 1960s, Kane was again proving equally influential with a new generation of readers and artists with his work for Marvel. During Kane's tenure at Marvel, he built upon Kirby's dynamic approach, made Marvels covers more fluid and refined, and established a singular style, which was purely his own." The new X-Men tackle the Ani-Men in "Warhunt." The art is drawn on newsprint with pencil and marker. The overall paper size is 11" x 14.75", with an image area of 10" x 12.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. Face front Marvelites, it's another milestone from Gil Kane for the House of Ideas, so bid away!
