Happy Birthday Lee Elias

Today would have been Lee Elias' 95th birthday. My love for his work has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. I know that some folks do not share my views, but maybe they've only seen some rush jobs for Marvel in the mid-70s. I think that those stood out to readers of my generation because they were the exact opposite of Neal Adams. Take another look at those Human Fly comics. They are actually pretty fun, with a great sense of movement throughout. His horror covers are iconic and it is still difficult to this of a heroine as cool as The Black Cat. We miss you, sir!
