History of Gil Kane 

Gil Kane first began working for MLJ Comics, later known as Archie Comics, after graduating from Manhattan's School of Industrial Art in 1942. Kane began drawing the borders on pages, for speech bubbles and other filler work.

In 1944, Kane started working for Timely Comics as an inker. His first assignment was inking the 28-page story The Spawn of Death, featured in Young Allies #14. He also worked as an uncredited ghost artist for Jack Kirby on the National Comics' series, Adventure Comics #91.

In 1949, Kane started working for National Comics, the predecessor of DC Comics, full-time and began a longstanding partnership with its editor-in-chief Julius Schwartz. Kane's first titles were All-Star Western and The Adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog. Kane also had an extensive run on the Green Lantern series, drawing almost all of the first 75 issues. In 1960, he drew the teen superhero title, Teen Titans.

By the late sixties, Kane was freelancing for Marvel again on series like The Incredible Hulk and Tales to Astonish using the pseudonym Scott Edwards, as he was moonlighting for the publisher. In collaboration with writer/editor Stan Lee, the two created the character the Abomination, a nemesis of The Incredible Hulk in Tales to Astonish #90.

Eventually, by the early 1970's Kane would leave DC and begin working for Marvel full-time after succeeding John Romita as the regular penciller on The Amazing Spider-Man series. Kane also helped to revise the Captain Marvel character as well as Adam Warlock, along with writer Roy Thomas. Kane and Thomas also co-created Iron Fist, a superhero who specializes in martial arts.

Kane was the recipient of the National Cartoonists Society Award in 1971, 1972 and 1975. He also won a Shazam Award in 1971 for Blackmark, his paperback comics novel. In 1975, he won an Inkpot Award. In 1997, Kane was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.
