The Grooviest Covers of All Time #1

From time to time, I'm just going to sit back and let a great pic do (most) of my talking, and this is one of those times. This is not a countown or list of any kind, the numbering in the title is just to help me keep track with how many covers I've--er--covered, clear? Then, on wit da show!

Sal Buscema is one of the greatest, most underrated comicbook artists ever, and I think it's a shame. Just look at this cover, Avengers (Vol. 1) No. 89.

Now THAT's a Marvel comicbook cover! All the power of Jack Kirby, the anatomical grace of John Buscema, and the slickness of John Romita, Sr. pouring from the pencil and brush of Our Pal Sal!

Neal Adams gets all the attention, art-wise, when it comes to the Kree/Skrull War, but, dudes and dudettes, in Ol' Groove's opinion, Sal Buscema doesn't take a backseat to anybody!

As for the rest of ya, the purpose of this blog is to (re)introduce you to the great comics of the 1970s. If you like what you see, do what I do--go to a comics shop, bookstore, e-Bay or whatever and BUY YOUR OWN!
