This will be the first of several chapters of Big John's Legacy dedicated to seeing works prior to their arrival Buscema Marvel in the mid 60's. And in this particular, we will see some of the most first-timers, like the cover of Mr. Risk (one of his early, early works, where it is difficult even to recognize their style) or the cover of Nature Boy (his real first contact with the super-heroic genre.)
A little further down, we have several pages where you can see a more mature style and close to the best John Buscema. The first belongs to a film adaptations of comic book publishing for Dell (notably Helen of Troy) and the following stories are great for headers Forbidden Worlds and Adventures Into the Unknown (American Comics Group), which already shows a truly spectacular style:
This time, in the interview, is John Morrow, editor / editorial director TwoMorrows (with his wife Pam, hence the Two). John, absolute fan of Jack Kirby, the legendary creator and editor of The Jack Kirby Collector , legendary title that began in 1994 almost as a fanzine and that day is a reference publication featuring the issue after issue collaboration of the best writers and theorists of the media. Apart from The Jack Kirby Collector, TwoMorrows publishes such prestigious titles as Alter Ego (edited by Roy Thomas), Draw! (Edited by Mike Manley) or Write Now! (Edited by Danny Fingeroth), among others. (Following one of your comments in an earlier post by Big John's Legacy, I only includes the translated version of the interview do not think it necessary to add below it the English version.)
Mo: Could you summarize briefly what it means to you the figure of John Buscema in the history of comics?
John: For me John Buscema occupies an important place in the history of comics. He is not focused on creating characters, rather chose to redefine visually. Did you know that any graphic work Buscema would always just a step above it in terms of artistic quality.
Mo: Tell me one of his works to excite you and lay his art first time or you will impact in a special way.
John: I personally enjoyed with Silver Surfer. Being a Kirby fan as I am, I always stay with the version of Jack's character, but Big John, especially in the early numbers, made a spectacular job.
Mo: What do you think is his masterpiece?
John: I'm partial to his work on the Avengers. I know everyone loves their Conan, but for me, seeing as it came to handling so many colorful characters was really fun.
Mo: If you had to stay with a single comic Big John (comic-book, magazine, graphic novel ...), what would would it be?
John: The second Superman / Spiderman. Strange choice, I know, but it is the work that I have come to mind.
Mo: On the eternal theme of which have proven unsuitable for its many of its inking pencils, what would you say has been your best ink?
John: Joe Sinnott. Can that tended to impose his own style on that of Buscema, but for me the combination was truly remarkable.
Mo: Throughout his career, John Buscema drew the vast majority of Marvel's iconic characters, what do you think these characters have lived the best representation of the history of Big Hand John?
John: Silver Surfer.
Mo: Thank you.
