Marvel Superheroes Poster

Arguably released at the height of his career, this poster by John Buscema is his take on the superhero montage familiar to most comic book fans. In 1978, small-press publisher Sal Quartuccio released 'The Art of John Buscema', a retrospective that included an interview, previously unpublished sketches and drawings, and a cover that was released contemporarily as this 56cm by 40cm poster.
John Buscema was one of the preeminent comic book artists of the late 20th century, and one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 60s and 70s ascendancy into an industry leader. He is perhaps best known for his work on the Savage Sword of Conan, which was one of the most popular comic series in the 1970s and is now considered a cult classic.
