THE WOLVERINE by John Buscema

John Buscema has always been my favorite comic book artist.  Many years ago when WOLVERINE  the series was coming out John was chosen to do the art for the comic book and he had a great run.  The issues with Al's inks were and probably are some of the greatest line art comic books has ever seen.  ( IMHO )
         With the film coming out seeing Hugh Jackman jacked up looking like a walking talking version of a John Buscema drawing just has the geek in me psyched to no end.  It'll be in 3D so we're really gonna see some claw popping action.  I think it'll be intense.
         But to digress...when the comic book series came out my local comic book shop owner Big Ed ( Rest his soul ) gave me the promo poster and I still have it... although it's just a promo poster it's a king sized piece of history...only next to my Big John HERC sketch it is one of the most prized pieces in my collection based on sentimental value alone.
        With this movie coming out and seeing the sneal peak trailer online it got my memory going and brought me back in time to the awe and joy of when John Buscema rulled the roost as one of the comic book industries greatest working , living legends...
          I love comic books ,I love Wolverine and I love John Buscema........


  1. I shall join you in your admiration for Big John, Mikey. One of the greats. His Conan will always be THE Conan for me and he said he looked at drawing Wolverine the same way he approached drawing Conan.

  2. I gotta fix those typos Charles...maybe latah
