Buscema was a true "artist's artist," his stellar anatomy, coupled with dynamic storytelling, made him one of the most revered and respected artists in the Marvel Pantheon. No Less than award-winning artist-illustrators Thomas Blackshear (Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame) and Steve Huston are fans. 

From the publisher:

Includes several complete stories (including Avengers and Sub-Mariner), as well as an incredible sampling of classic covers and pages from Buscema's runs on Avengers, Fantastic Four, Thor, Sub-Mariner, and more from the mid 1960s to the late '70s in the groundbreaking Artist's Edition format!

The artistic mastery of John Buscema is apparent on every page of this book. Viewing these pages, it’s easy to see why Buscema has been called the Michelangelo of comics.    

And, as with all Artist's Editions, all the art in this book has been scanned from Buscema's originals, enabling the reader to be able to clearly view each page as never before-clearly seeing pencils, editorial notations, ink gradients, more-all the little details and nuances that makes original art unique. Unless you were looking over John Buscema's shoulder in his studio, you'll never have a better opportunity than this to see his artwork as it truly looks!
