John Buscema has been called one of the finest comic artists who ever put pen to paper. His work for Marvel Comics on "The Avengers", "Thor", "The Fantastic Four", and "Silver Surfer" are all classics, highly regarded by fans from around the world. The same is true for his definitive rendition of "Conan the Barbarian" - Buscema breathed life into Robert E. Howard's legendary creation in a manner that has rarely been rivaled. IDW is proud to announce the first American publication of "John Buscema: Comics & Drawings", a special edition of the fine art catalog created for the most extensive exhibition of Buscema's art ever staged. Weighing in at nearly 300-pages, this gorgeous hardcover book is a dream come true for fans of the visual mastery of John Buscema, an artist who's ilk we are unlikely to see again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic looking book! 21. Juli 2012
Von Doug - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I pre-ordered the hardcover Big John Buscema: Comics and Drawings, and am I glad I did. This is a great-looking book, with hundreds of samples of Buscema's art ranging from color covers and interior pages to original B&W pages to sketches. Many of the samples were on display at a show honoring Buscema's work, which took place in Gijon, Spain (on the northern coast of the Iberian nation) in 2009. This book is a catalog to accompany the exhibition. It should be considered as such.

As some have mentioned, the type is incredibly small and that is what keeps this book from getting a 5-star rating from me. As to the Spanish text laid side-by-side with the English, this was not a distraction and indeed I found it interesting. Knowing fully up front that this was a catalog, I was not offended by this "feature". I suppose I got what I expected, and it in no way detracts from the pleasure of the book. If I have one other nitpick, it is that author Casal Solleric wrote the entire text in the present-tense. That was immeasurably more distracting than the Spanish accompaniment.

Laid next to the other Buscema books (Spurlock's, Quartuccio's, Peck's, and Soltero's), I consider this volume the "best yet". While it is not without fault, it is thus far the most detailed account of Buscema's career, with art to support the various life events and commentaries provided by Solleric. This was obviously a labor of love, and we are the beneficiaries.

The Big John Buscema Book
From the Casal Solleric De Mallorca Gallery

If you are a John Buscema enthusiast, and I am, this looks like an almost irresistible book to buy. The wonderful images of covers, printed pages and the vast amount of original art reproductions make this book impressive. Sadly, there is a lot less here than meets the eye.

I mentioned the artwork, and will get back to that in a bit. But let me bring up three other important points.

The typeset in the book is incredibly small, I would say no bigger than 8 point type, when most books are published in 10 or 12 pt. If you are over 40 or need reading glasses, OR if you are over 50 and use reading glasses, this text may be hard to see. The typesetting is even changed starting on page 185, another distraction. In fact, this is an easy to read book if it wasn't so hard to read.

And exactly half the text is in another language, Spanish. That's right, next to every column in English, is another column in Spanish, with (I presume) translated text. For the cover price of $60, (Amazon $32) they should have printed two separate editions, WITH BIGGER TYPE, one in English and one is Spanish. Our Spanish reading amigos will also have trouble with the all English footnotes.

So, with so many of the 300 pages filled with pictures, there are, perhaps, 100 pages of text. But we must divide that by 2, one for each language, so there are about 50 pages of text to tell the story of John Buscema. This not a biography but an overview of his work, not his private life. While I did not feel the author was rushed, he was brief. There is no "official writer" credited with authoring this book but Florentino Florez is credited with writing the preface. The book is also written from the perspective of one person, so I assume it is F.F.

The book is heavily researched and, for that reason I found little new in the beginning. The author relies heavily on a few interviews in Alter Ego, The Kirby Collector and the John Romita book all by Tomorrow's publication. So if you read those interviews, there is not a whole of new material in the beginning. The rest of the book is more original, but it still relies on those publications.

We do start off learning that while working for Martin Goodman in 1950 (Atlas, now known as Marvel) Buscema made $75 a week, but later found work at such places as Hillman and St. John's for $30-$35 a page. The Comics Code era changed everything and he was down to $21 a page. After drawing Spartacus for Dell in 1960, he would leave the comic book industry for 6 years and went into the advertising industry. When Stan Lee offered him, in 1966, the same salary he made in advertising, but he could work at home, Buscema returned to comics and drew Nick Fury in Strange Tales #150. The author takes us through that era, one series at a time, often discussing the inkers who he feels improved or diminished Buscema's work.

The Avengers segment was interesting and he got into his opinions of Buscema's inkers, (The only time Sal is mentioned is as an inker, there is no history between them given.) but the content fills up less than a page. The book's two most interesting pieces, for me, was on the Silver Surfer and the prolong piece on Conan. Since the Avengers and the Surfer were originally Kirby pieces, The writer, is careful here. He mentions the influence Kirby had on comics, and on Buscema, but always mentions how Buscema expanded on and improved on Kirby's intentions, without every putting him down. He is never so careful with Lee, saying that Lee handled simple things, but was successful with complex projects. He blames Lee for the failure of the Silver Surfer; saying took the character too seriously and had a formulistic approach.

"Buscema had assumed Kirby's legacy and he had taken it to the next level. He took the explosions, the distorted gestures and the spectacular planning and adapted them into a realistic, solid style, full of energy and elegance. It enabled him to create panels like the one where the Surfer, as a new St. Francis of Assisi, rests amongst a horde of extraordinary beasts. Or those pages where he reaches Asgard and stands up to Thor, when his friends leap over the table to defend him, all of it a marvel of expressiveness. Lee tried to, but he never succeeded. He would claim that his scripts took him in another direction, but he couldn't do it. In short: Lee had been overtaken by Buscema, and he knew it."

"I consider Stan Lee's legacy no more important than some advocate. His mistake is not in his artistic goals, but rather in the way he tried to be something he wasn't. He was very good at uncomplicated adventures, but was out of his depth in more complex ones. The Silver Surfer is a noble effort that achieves great results in the field of drawing, but ends up failing in the storyline. This might have brought about the frustration felt by the publisher and the scriptwriter, which could in turn explain his clash with Buscema. It may not be true, but it sounds good..."

The Illustrations in the book are outstanding. The selections are wonderful. In some ways it feels like the new Artist Editions that are out there, with so much original art although there are no complete stories. There are many illustrations of printed , full color pages that are just great to see. And lots of covers. You really get to see how inkers added or took away from his art. I enjoyed seeing the original art of an unpublished Surfer cover next to the published one. Tarzan, the Avengers, Conan, his Dell work are so well represented here.

The book also has a very nicely researched and laid out Buscema checklist at the back

It's a hard book to rate. The pictures are an "A+"
The layout and format of the book is a "D", it's hard to read and half is wasted in another language.
The text content is good, but there is not enough depth or originality. "C?"
I guess that all averages out to a "B." But check to see if you can read it first.

Since posting I have learned that the book is a reprint of an exhibition catalog that was originally in THREE languages: Catalonian, Spanish, and English being the third. A lot of rework was done to maintain the page count that was a limiting factor and most of the illustration choices were based on the art that appeared at the exhibition (on Majorca in the Mediterranean)

This is a fantastic book! Buscema art collected in a nice hard cover. This is like the Wally Wood 'Woodwork' book, they accompanied exhibits overseas at comic art exhibits. As one reviewer stated there is Spanish text along with english,no big deal.I have hundreds of Japanese animation art books in Japanese.I buy art books for the ART.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nice.... 20. Februar 2013
Von An Innocent Bystander - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Nice heavy coffee table book, this book shows respect for the artist. Many have complained of the tiny text-I have to wear readers either way so that doesn't bother me. I do wish however that the whole page was full of english text, rather than split in 2 to show the spanish. Seems crazy. As far as the art goes, you will get just what you are looking for. Finished art, colored art, pencil sketches, cover drafts, original inked covers, page after page of comics just showing his inked pencil drawings. Lots and lots of great looking art. He was the Master......this book is worth its weight in gold if your a Buscema fan or simply a fan of good comic art.
