The Incredible Hulk, the devastating Dragon Man, the epic end of the gods themselves - none of it was too much for John Buscema. One of comicdom's most acclaimed creators takes centre stage in the genre-spanning gathering of greats

These Visionaries volumes are not so much best-of collections as they are an overview or sampling of the creator's work from its earliest days on. In this case, it was interesting to see "Big John"'s technique evolve from its relatively humble beginnings into the dynamic style that most comic readers are probably familiar with. In addition to stories featuring the Fantastic Four, Avengers, Thor, Hulk, Silver Surfer and other Marvel Universe luminaries, there are a couple early crime stories and a romance, as well as a slightly mature Dracula piece. Some of them are classics while others just aren't so good, and frankly the combined extreme melodrama of Stan Lee and Roy Thomas made my head hurt. Still, a decent study for comic art historians.
