Getting Spectacular…

Sal Buscema turns 84 today — he was born Jan. 26, 1936.

Buscema’s one of the most notable, if often unsung, artists in Marvel history and for this year’s 13 COVERS birthday tribute, we’re spotlighting his work on Spectacular Spider-Man.

  1. Yes! Spectacular Spider-Man #180 was one of my first Sal comics. I’ve read it so many times that the cover has disintegrated. I still have it, along with the tattered cover, though. There are several pages in the issue where it’s just silent art and watching the emotions run across Harry Osborn and Peter Parker’s faces. What an artist!
