Blowing My Stack

Friday Comic Book Day.

After Mort Meskin did his two Wildcat stories for Sensation Comics, the next few issues the feature was taken over by Gil Stack. An unknown artist, whose style I really liked. Even a bit similar to Meskin. So I looked him up wand was surprised to see that it was in fact a pseudonym for Gil Kane. Just like Gil Kane was a pseudonym for Elia Katz, by the way. But we know him als Gil Kane, so let's stick with that.

Gil Kane was always an impressive artist, but he was never pleased with his own style. Like his name, he changed his image many times. But the graphic genius always came through.
