John Buscema

John Buscema (1927 – 2002) was one of the giants of comics. His work was hugely idiosyncratic, and immediately recognisable. John’s influences spanned centuries; his figures resembled familiar Renaissance sculpture, his compositions (of his frames and pages) resembled those found in contemporary cinema.

John was inventive, and innovative, but all the time respectful of the comic book form. He was truely a master, and his run on the Silver Surfer is one of the high water marks in the history of the comic form.

Did I mention that I think xkcd is the greatest web comic on the planet?

More Jim Steranko

I post this reproduction because, in my opinion, it is one of the single greatest pages in the history of comics. Mr. Steranko wrote and drew 3 issues of Captain America (which are among my favourite comics of all-time). Mr. Steranko is more than worthy of two consecutive posts.

Jim Steranko

This image is for those many foolish people who actually thought there was anything original about how Frank Miller’s Sin City looked. To appreciate comics one must become familiar with Jim Steranko.
