New slots to fill!  I realize they are not any of the heavy hitters but I still enjoy these just the same. :)

They're plenty heavy. All super sweet and super tough in those grades. I think the #105 is a unicorn.

I’m always on the lookout for a nice 105

I am sooooooooo jelly

It was actually easier for me to find Fury 1972-1973 OA Cover and Splash art than the books in high grade  :)

Sweet drama-loaded Kane cover.

My hot take, even though these books are over years old: Gil Kane was, by far, the best cover artist in the PF era. He might have had a few clunkers but the vast majority of are pretty dynamic and memorable.

There are a few distinctive features of his art I'm not crazy about that always jump out at me, most notably the frequent "up the nostrils" camera angle ...

... and the strange, unconvincing way he did reptile skin.

There are also a few times where he gave Thor or especially the Hulk weird "updated" hairstyles that didn't look right for them.

I'm not sure if I could call him the "best" when John Buscema is standing right over there!  lol  But Kane was definitely a huge Marvel Bronze Age mainstay and I do agree that his fingerprints are all over that picture frame period. :angel:
