Happy Birthday Eli Katz aka Gil Kane!

Kane was the co-creator of the “modern day” versions (as opposed to the Golden Age) of the DC superheroes The Atom and Green Lantern. He also co-created (with writer Roy Thomas) one of Marvel’s martial arts heroes, Iron Fist, in the 1970s. Kane was also a pioneer of the graphic novel with two seminal works, His Name Is… Savage (1968) and Blackmark (1971). In an upcoming post I’ll detail more about the wonderfully spectacular Gil Kane. In the meantime…

“In brightest day, In blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!”
