Gil Kane blows into town, and his dynamic, cartoony style helps clear out the cobwebs after John Buscema's too-stiff, classic illustration approach. Kane is the first artist on the title to ink his own pencils since Ditko, and it's not entirely clear if he's clicking here with Stan Lee, who actually interrupts his usual compulsive logorrhea to leave one panel entirely wordless. The story is not much better than OKAY, but the new visual direction shows promise.
