Buscema

Three cheers - who doesn't like this guy? Pure awesome. Some defining sword and sorcery imagery for me.

When inked by Alcala, there was no beating the team of Thomas, Buscema, and Alcala.

Re: Buscema

Very sweet indeed! You just convinced me to find my Savage Sword of Conan books and do some bedside reading tonight.

Re: Buscema

A few of my favorite Buscema/Alcala images... Just love the inkwork in the stones, and the brooding feel to it. Alcala's use of blacks and hashing is so good.... definitely inspirational. I have seen scans of the original drawings for these and the mastery of Buscema shows through in them. Definitely a masterful duo!

Yeah, the hashing and inkwork make it look like an woodcutting from a really old text.

I really dig this kind of B&W art.

Really takes me back to those Savage Sword of Conan issues from the 1980s.


What? Me worry?
