The Mighty art of John Buscema !
I really don't have much to say about this...it's John Buscema. What is there to say. John was a hero to me. Here in this unused cover for an AVENGERS issue you can see the power coming from both Herc and Tyr as they get ready to do battle as the others look on. Only Hercules has a chance against the Asgardian god of war. Of course as in times past Herc triumphed.
I borrowed this image from Michael Maikowsky and his John Buscema Facebook profile. I miss John Buscema...but I have much of his work in my comics. I marvel at it from time to time and think back to when I actually got to meet him in 1986. He never understood the fanfare or even got why comic books meant so much to so many...but for the love of art he kept on going.
He kept on going.
