Description

I firmly believe Sal Buscema to be one of the best artists ever to grace Marvel comics. When it comes to Bronze Age, the best Sal Buscema is absolutely on par with the best Byrne and Perez, IMHO. People always recognise Sal's storytelling. But this double page splash shows how bold he could be in layout. Note how the left hand page's "emptyness" provides the depth for the dynamic right hand page. And the pose of Silver Surfer and Namor was not easy to pull off, I would say.

Razor sharp inks by Verpoorten, perfect for the Silver Surfer.

Interestingly, the two pages are not joint together. I am not sure they ever were. I checked the comic and the double splash is indeed split in two separate large panels.

This was one of my Defenders grails, and I am glad to say it looks amazing in person.

WOW!!!!! What a fantastic double splash by Sal. That image of Surfer pulling Namor away is INCREDIBLE! I wish the Hulk was included in the page somewhere, but as is, it's still a phenomenal splash from my favorite team book ever! Congratulations my friend.

Nice pick up. I'm not a huge fan o Sal Buscema's work, but I have to admit he has a unique sense of pacing and storytelling. It's very dynamic, we know what's happening in a glimpse, even without any word balloons. And the rendition of the Silver Surfer and Namor are well done, we can "read" determination and surprise on their respective faces. I miss this kind of artist.
