The Grooviest Covers of All Time: More Comics Our Pal Sal Made Me Buy

Another birthday this week? Yep, today is the 82nd birthday of Silvio Buscema, better known as Young Groove's first favorite artist, Our Pal Sal! Man, oh, man, was I ever bowled over by Sal's covers! They were always so action-packed and exciting, dramatic and deft, fun and far-out!  Avengers, Subby, and DD got most of the Sal covers when I first started throwing three nickels at a time at whomever was behind the King Kwik counter back in 1970/71, and those are the ones Ol' Groove wants to focus on today. Just plant your peepers on the sheer awesomeness below and try not to smile...

Happy birthday, Sal! And thank you!!


  1. I hope I get to meet Sal some day. He doesn't seem to get to the West Coast.

  2. I love Sal's work! It's been very influential to my own artwork.
