    Description

    John Buscema and George Roussos The Avengers #55 Masters of Evil Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). A battle royal is spotlighted in this magnificent Marvel masterwork, the cover for "Mayhem Over Manhattan." John Buscema's superlative figure work opened up new vistas of glory for the Avengers title and helped cement his reputation as one of the key artists at Marvel Comics. Buscema's art set the standard for the "House of Ideas" after Jack Kirby departed in 1970. Answering the Avengers roll call are Hawkeye, Goliath, the Wasp, and the Black Panther. The Black Knight, the Melter, the Radioactive Man, Whirlwind, and Klaw guest star. This show-stopping spectacular has an approximate image area of 10" x 15". The main image has been glued and taped to a Marvel cover stock backing, and there are taped on art corrections on the Black Panther; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.

    More information about John Buscema, also known as Buscema, John, John Buscema.
