    Description

    John Buscema and "The Tribe" - MGM's Marvelous Wizard of Oz #1 Page Original Art, Group of 71 (Marvel/DC, 1975). Marvel Comics and DC Comics teamed to present their comic book based on a timeless film classic -- MGM's magical musical, "The Wizard of Oz." The artist selected to draw this story was an inspired choice -- John Buscema. The storytelling, likenesses of the famous actors and fabulous sets, and all of the other elements of the film, are re-created to perfection. Roy Thomas wrote the script and edited the title. This fantastic group lot showcases pages six through seventy-five of the book, and also the final splash page of the "Coming Oz-tractions," featuring the Scarecrow and the Tin Man. As an "art bonus," several of the pages have detailed sketches by John Buscema on their backsides. Each page has an image area of approximately 10" x 15", and the art averages Very Good condition. A copy of the comic book is included in this lot. This story must surely rank among John Buscema's finest work in comics.
