The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Sal Buscema Made Me Buy These!

Time for a round of magnificent Marvel Comics covers courtesy Our Pal Sal Buscema! Need Ol' Groove say more?

Didn't think so. And you're welcome!


  1. Sal has always been so under rated! My first memory of his awesomeness. Was either his great run with Roy THomas on the Sub-Mariner with inker Sam Grainger. Or a issue of the Hulk he drew or inked. People complained his style was rushed/sketchy years later. We'll DOH of course he was doing a Jack Kirby & a John Buscema amount of titles every month! Probably between 5-7 plus covers! Granted Sal didn't always have great inkers. But when he did or inked himself his art was equally as epic! Nuff Said!

  2. How did Cap ever survive a Porcupine that was "stronger than ever"?

  3. Wouldn it it be great to be able to pop out and snag these right now?

    Saturday afternoons were made for reading comics!

    And, just so you know, I'd save The Defenders for last - Cry Yandroth! indeed :)
