The man Gil Kane

Some fine fine drawing of hot man flesh by a master. GK had a pure vision and would draw what real muscled and lean men actually looked like and not an ideal image. Sometimes the butts looked wrong until I did a little ..uh, research, and then I saw that he was right. I remember tracing that image of Acroyear when I was 12 and giving him some extra anatomy. Micronauts #38 and "I'm trapped at six inches" lol is from Sword of the Atom #1

Gil Kane was a true master - He drew a Superman Elseworlds special, inked by Kevin Nowlan, that depicts a powerless Superman in a post-apocalyptic future, and the men (well, everybody really) look gorgeous.

There's another such one-shot, his last published work, but that one was not entirely drawn by him, and they had the (equally awesome) John Buscema finish the book.

I need to hunt me down some of them "Sword of the Atom"s. I recently bought this DC Special Gil did in the 80s "TALOS of the Wilderness Sea" purely for the art.
