"Mighty" Joe Jusko does a bang up job with this homage to "Big" John Buscema's classic Avengers cover from issue #58 of the Silver Age run for the upcoming The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. It's one of Buscema's best covers for the series, showing off his ability to draw the human form in action splendidly.
Here's Jusko's artwork minus the Overstreet Price Guide logos. He gets what Buscema was trying to do, keeping his figures caught in a split second of action.
And here's Buscema's original classic cover artwork. Note this captures Goliath in his brief red and blue costume just before he dropped that role and became Yellowjacket. I've always been partial to that look.
This cover has been used a few times on reprints of the classic stories of the Assemblers.
I didn't get an Overstreet last year, but I clearly need a copy of this fantastic bit of artwork.
