Buscema is a legend due to his mastery of anatomy and the dynamics of his figures. He proved his skills with one of the most popular characters of the '70s: Conan. Buscema, with writer Roy Thomas, created a new archetype that will remain a beacon in comics history.
This is THE book on this superb comics artist. Another book on Buscema was produced by Vanguard in late 2010. But this book is twice the number of pages, just to begin with. It was compiled to accompany a major exhibit in Spain, of all places, celebrating the amazing career of Buscema. From his start in comics in the early 1950s to his tenure as the creator of the "house" style at Marvel, particularly on Conan, The Avengers, Thor and The Fantastic Four, after Kirby left these last two titles. This huge tome considers his entire life (1927-2002) and shows example of his work through it, a great deal taken from the original artwork. It is simply a must-have for any comics fan.
