    Description

    John Buscema Punisher: War Zone Unfinished or Preliminary Splash Page Original Art (Marvel Comics, 1990s). Buscema had loose-sketched this intended internal splash-image and had begun brush-inking it in broad strokes, but then left the composition abandoned as new inspirations beckoned. It comes from an unspecified issue of a series spanning 1992-95. Strikingly composed from a low camera angle, and brimming with the virile energy that characterizes Buscema's work. A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the intricate stagecraft that bolsters the artistry of comic books. Signed at lower margin. Ink over graphite on Marvel-brand Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
