John Buscema’s Marvel Heroes: Artist’s Edition is the latest book in IDW’s effort to bring raw artwork by a world-class talent to a mass audience for a low price. This book includes work from 1968 to 1989 – the classic Marvel era to the “Image” era. It features complete stories from Avengers, Sub-Mariner, and Thor, as well as paneled pages from The Fantastic Four, Captain America, and Wolverine. There are double-page spreads, covers, model sheets, and pin-ups. Buscema’s work is inked by other legendary artists, among them Dave Cockrum, Joe Sinnott, and Tom Palmer. Besides being in its original black-and-white form, there are patches and white-outs which show additions, as well as mistakes. It is both fascinating and a joy to look at.
John Buscema’s Marvel Heroes: Artist’s Edition is fantastic. This and the other collections that IDW has produced are nothing short of amazing. Truly, this is a must-have for anyone who studies and loves the art of comics.
