    John Buscema and Tom Palmer - Original Cover Art for The Avengers #283 (Marvel, 1987). The fabled art team of John Buscema and Tom Palmer created much of the highly-regarded Avengers art. The smooth, clean, and well-crafted brushstrokes of Tom Palmer's inking mesh handsomely with John Buscema's mastery of penciled figure anatomy, which is often presented in dynamic and foreshortened views. The "Avengers Assemble!" as She-Hulk, Thor, The Black Knight, Namor, and Captain America wade through their knife-wielding, female foes. A penciled production note in the lower border implores, "Tom F--Make sure PALMER gets this one!" He did! The overall art paper measures 11" x 17", with an image area of 10" x 15"; the art is in excellent condition. The Buscema-Palmer team has signed the art along the lower left border. The title logo box is a carefully color-matched replacement.
