John Buscema pencils/Frank Giacoia inkls; page 19; 1967; image size 10" x 15"

Beautifully rendered by Big John Buscema, this page delivers in the Mighty Marvel Manner. Let's talk about all that you get in this incredible interior page from 1968's first issue of Sub-Mariner. First panel right off the bat, you get "Flame On!" action from Jonny Storm, a wise cracking Ben Grimm, and classic maritime/pirate talk from the mouth of Subby! It's endearing, it's historical, it's perfect. So, swears the true Sub-Mariner! Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition.

Artists Information

'The Michelangelo of comics.' Buscema was one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 1960s and 1970s heyday, best known for his run on the The Avengers and The Silver Surfer, and for over 200 stories featuring the sword-and-sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. In addition, he penciled at least one issue of nearly every major Marvel title, including long runs on two of the company's top books, Fantastic Four and Thor.

Frank Giacoia (July 6, 1924 – February 4, 1988) was an American comics artist known primarily as an inker. He sometimes worked under the name Frank Ray, Giacoia made the rounds to almost every Golden Age publisher, notably working on Flash and Batman stories, he also worked at Timely during this period. In the Silver Age Frank worked on many Jack Kirby pages, particularly in Captain America, and he also notably inked the first appearance of the Punisher in AMS #129.
