    John Buscema and Bob McLeod - Tarzan #16 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1978). Tarzan's hang glider is being blasted to bits by a dead-eye desperado. Of all the great Marvel artists, none was better suited to draw the exploits of the Lord of the Jungle than John Buscema. Big John literally wrote the book on figure drawing for comics -- the superb how-to tome was titled, How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way. The image area of the cover measures 9.75" x 15". There are a few minor printer's oil stains along the borders of the paper, and in the lower right corner, otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. As a bonus, a cover preliminary by Marie Severin (attributed) is included with this lot. The design is drawn in blue pencil and pen, and the image area measures approximately 7" x 10". The preliminary is in Excellent condition, and offers a great insight into what steps went into creating a Marvel cover. Face front, this cover will make your spirits soar!
