IDW’s John Buscema’s Marvel Heroes Artist’s Edition out in October

US publisher IDW’s next Artist’s Edition, John Buscema’s Marvel Heroes Artist’s Edition, goes on sale on 13th October 2021 and is available to pre-order now from your local comic shop.

Featuring an outstanding sampling of Big John Buscema’s classic stories, covers, and interior pages from the mid 1960s to the late ’70s, all in the groundbreaking and multi-Eisner Award-winning Artist’s Edition format.

Buscema was a true “artist’s artist,” his stellar anatomy, coupled with dynamic storytelling, made him one of the most revered and respected artists in the Marvel Pantheon. This volume will contain several complete stories (including Avengers and Sub-Mariner), plus incredible examples of art from his runs on Avengers, Fantastic Four, Thor, Sub-Mariner, and more.

Also included will be a gallery section chock full of covers. And, as with all Artist’s Editions, all the art in this book has been scanned from Buscema’s originals, enabling the reader to be able to clearly view each page as never before-clearly seeing pencils, editorial notations, ink gradients, more-all the little details and nuances that makes original art unique.

“Unless you were looking over John Buscema’s shoulder in his studio,” IDW enthuse, “you’ll never have a better opportunity than this to see his artwork as it truly looks.”

This book will feature several foldouts presenting a number of Buscema’s early, larger covers at full size-a true treat for art lovers.
