Hmmm. Gil Kane was a famous and influential comic book artist of the so-called Silver Age of comics. But he didn’t have gills and he always spelled his name Gil Kane and not Gill Kane.

Don’t real writers re-read their manuscript before sending it to an editor?

Don’t real editors know the basic background of the book they’re putting together?

Don’t real publishers have proofreaders on the payroll?
