DESCRIPTION
Gil Kane pencils/Dan Adkins inks; page 19; 1971; image size 10" x 15"
"And Men Shall Call Him... Warlock!"



The High Evolutionary rests while Man-Beast goes about his nefarious business. All the while, the face of 'Him', soon to be known as Adam Warlock hovers in the background. Beautiful drawing by Kane and Adkins, from a key storyline, already teased in the Marvel Movie Universe, where Warlock's introduction is inevitable. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by Kane in the first panel.

Artists Information

Gil Kane was a Latvian-born American comics artist whose career spanned the 1940s to the 1990s and virtually every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as that of The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98, which, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name Is... Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.

Dan Adkins is an American comic book artist/ illustrator who's mainly worked for comics and science fiction magazines. Dan's most notable works include Marvel's Doctor Strange and Famous Monsters of Filmland.
