Gene Colan art in Spidey cartoons!
- I'm back on re-reading my 60's Marvels, in chronological sequence
(month-by-month as they came out). Last night I got to TALES OF
SUSPENSE #76 (Apr'66), and page 4 stopped be dead in my tracks. This
is an Iron Man story with art by Gene Colan & Jack Abel-- and I
RECOGNIZED it from one-- possibly several-- of the Ralph Bakshi-Gray
Morrow SPIDER-MAN cartoons!
I dug out the "screen-captures" Jim Fielding sent me, and sure
enough-- THE EXACT same car!
I figure what happened was, Grantray-Lawrence apparently did several
Gene Colan episodes as part of the MARVEL SUPER-HEROES SHOW. when G-L
went bankrupt, Bakshi said he grabbed as much of their materials as he
could get to use in the later Spidey shows. I never realized until
today that as least some of that came from a G-L Iron Man cartoon!
