THE SILVER SURFER MARVEL POCKET BOOK COVER
I was asked to draw a cover of the Silver Surfer in 2007 for Panini's Marvel pocket book collections ,i was thrilled as the work inside was by the late great John Buscema and writer Stan (the man) Lee, i read these stories as a kid in the 70's reprints in black and white comics published by Marvel u.k.
John Buscema has always been in my top ten of comic greats and his run on the Silver Surfer has never been bettered ,my fav issue is issue 4 when the Surfer vs Thor .
the cover is a homage to John Buscema and i drew it in his style ,i was lucky to get David Roach to ink it and it was coloured by Junior Tomlin.
so here's my cover pencils and the printed cover.
