Silver Surfer Saturday: John Buscema Self-Portrait

Around 1970, John Buscema did a self-portrait with himself among various Marvel Heroes.

Here's part of that poster with Buscema smoking in peace where the Silver Surfer be-devils him with cosmic rays.  Although I would be more worried about Mephisto rising up out of the smoke.

I found the pencil rough that John Buscema produced, showing a much larger piece.  It has Conan, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, etc.

Anyone know where I can get a scan of the full finished poster?  Nuff Said!

Hah, as soon as I saw your Twitter heading, I saw that Buscema-SS drawing in my head -- so I'm not quite senile yet! It's super, of course. But the big surprise was seeing that pencil sketch for a design with heaps of heroes -- too bad that was never completed. I own all of 18 (?) the original SS issues: classic, slick stuff, many very nicely inked by his bro Sal, right, but Sinnott also inked some? (I don't have access to them right now, can't check.)
