Art of John Buscema: Classic Marvel Heroes on this 1978 cover!

Art of John Buscema cover

This cover appeared on The Art of John Buscema, a 1978 special that focused on Big John’s artwork.  Classic Marvel fans will appreciate this cover, featuring Buscema’s renditions of Conan, the Avengers, Thor, Silver Surfer, etc.  Even Howard the Duck (a real superstar at that point in Marvel History) is represented!

Here’s the black and white version of this cover.  This magazine sized retrospective was published by Sal Quartuccio.

And here’s another Classic Marvel shot by Big John that I featured a while back, a poster Buscema did for a Marvel Convention in 1976.  Nuff Said!

  1. Thanks for posting this. Like a lot of 1970s Marvel fanboys, I bought this as a high school student in 1978. Had I known how rare it would be today, I'd still have my copy.
