Marvel visionaries , John Buscema

Yesterday I treated myself to a book I've always wanted.....that'll put a smile on my face. So...I bought this book. Inside it's filled with the brilliant comic book work of John Buscema the greatest most talented artist Marvel ever had. He had few peers and certainly nobody as talented when it came down to the human figure. His mastery of human anatomy was second to none. He was The Michelangelo of comics. Read here below in the text I lifted from for this book. Then go order yourself one. It's a must have for all the fans who love Big John's work.

  1. Big John has always been one of my favorite Marvel artists. I'm right in the middle of his run of late 60's Avengers stories and they're just great to look at. His Conan run is classic too!

  2. I miss Big John more than I can say. :-(
