  Gil Kane Obituary - MISFITS - Chris Jones   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Born in 1926, Kane had worked in the comics field since the "Golden Age" of the 1940's but was best known for his work in comics' "Silver Age" of the 1960's.
Kane's dynamic, unique style proved as popular as ever, even as many Silver Age contemporaries were having a hard time finding an audience and work as a new generation of comics artists began to dominate the scene.
Kane and Grant were also working on a hardcover Superman graphic novel that was unfinished at the time of Kane's passing.

 eBay Guides - Comics Buying Guide
From the early days of newspaper comic strips, crime stories, and tales of suspense, to the reign of superheroes, horror stories, and adult themes, comic books have both chronicled and become part of pop culture history in the United States.
Comics evolved from newspaper comic strips and were first sold as comic books during the early 1930s, ushering in the platinum age.
Comic book values typically depend on a number of factors, including how hard to find a particular issue is and the condition of the comic book.

 Fanzing 25 - Feb/Mar 2000 - Gil Kane: In Memorium
Kane, and the wide-eyed and appreciative reader -- Telling the Bloody Story was one skill at which the former was a past master; plain and simple.
Kane's work on the covers of the "western" comics of the Marvel line, during this period, was particularly fine and evocative stuff; full of "worm's-eye" POVs and tilted, slightly askew backgrounds.
All of this, mind, was accompanied by a sly, wicked sense of humor with which the inexhaustible Mister Kane suitably leavened even the direst of storytelling proceedings; with the end result being as idiosyncratically cheery and accessible as it was eye-catching and engaging.

 TMe:Bob Kane Dies at 83
"Bob Kane is a giant in the field of popular culture, one of a handful of people who launched the comic book industry and who gave the world a group of characters so colorful and inventive that they continue to captivate every new generation," said Jenette Kahn, president and editor in chief of DC Comics.
The background is well-known to fans of Kane and Batman: Teenager Bruce Wayne, traumatized by witnessing his parents' murder, vows to avenge their deaths and uses his vast fortune to study criminology, perfect his athletic body and acquire clever vehicles and weapons to fight crime in his hometown of Gotham.
Kane, who changed his surname from Kahn early in his career, assembled a staff to work with him on the comic strip, but remained the principal artist through the 1940s and closely supervised the work for many years after that.

 Talent Pool 05 - Gil Kane (Feb 1999)
In a sense, one traces the history of the comics medium itself in tracing this man's career, although it took some twenty years of working, on and off, in the industry, both for minor and major players, before comics bigwigs and fans alike recognized the specialness of the man and his work.
Kane's work here demonstrates an energy lacking from his peers in other titles; Murphy Anderson, Curt Swan, Carmine Infantino, Ross Andru, and lesser names doing DC art all, between them, failed to match this grade of four-color mayhem, regardless of their recognizeable ability as artists and newsprint cinematographers.
Kane's dynamism does not owe, in a recognizeable form, to the sixties Kirby style; Gil Kane invented his own means of making action jump from panel to panel and from the page well into the faces of his readers.

 Comic creator: Bob Kane
Bob Kane was the original artist of the 'Batman' comic, which was an immediate hit and has been in continuous publication since 1940, with new stories almost every month.
Kane drew a couple of adventure features written by Bill Finger, such as 'Rusty and his Pals' in Adventure Comics and 'Clip Carson' in Action Comics.
Kane would illustrate 'Batman' until the mid 1940s, and although his name appeared on the strip until 1964, the work was done mostly by other artists, initially Robinson, and later also Stan Kaye, Sheldon Moldoff, Dick Sprang, Jack Burnley, and Carmine Infantino.

 Movie Poop Shoot - COMICS 101
Kane took the designs to Finger, who suggested changing the mask to a full-head cowl with bat ears, changing the wings to a scalloped cape, and changing the red tights to a more moody gray color.
Kane and Finger’s revised Batman character met with approval from Sullivan, and the character made his first appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #27 (May 1939) in “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate,” which bears a byline by “Rob’t Kane,” and Kane alone.
In Kane’s defense, it was common practice in the early days of newspaper comics and comic books to only credit the artist and not his writers or assistants, but considering how much Finger contributed and would continue to contribute to the Batman mythology, the omission remained galling.

 (ADD Review)
Kane's talent was best served when he inked himself, as he usually did in the latter part of his career.
When Kane took over, I was thrilled at the news, but Bulanadi's heavy-handed inking was wholly inappropriate to the task at hand, and Kane reportedly preferred his own inking in most cases anyway.
It's good, because Kane's work will once again be in the spotlight on two of the characters he helped define, and good because perhaps it will lead to greater awareness of Kane's importance in the artform of comics.

As it is in todays'world, people rather read comics with original characters created for comics, not adapted, as if they have missed out on something and needs to catch up....

Gil was one of those versatile artists whose career was not particularly disturbed by the comic witch-hunt of the period and the subsequent forming of the Comics Code Authority in 1954.
He produced work of such high quality at this time that it was obvious that Gil had become one of the masters of the comic field, and many began to emulate his stylized interpretation of the comic medium.
During the last five years, he has re-entered the comic book field doing a book here and there, but his greatest contribution today is his constant appearances at comic book conventions around the country.

Mark Evanier's unearthing of an illustration's blog's dissection of a noteworthy Batman panel has led to a pretty decent discussion of Bob Kane's motivations and the tendency in early comic book to swipe like mad.

I've always thought it would be funny to read a Batman comic where he runs across a more extreme version of Bob Kane as he come across in such stories, but that will never happen.
