I don't suspect I'll get too many arguments when I suggest that John Buscema was one of the true masters of the medium. He had the dynamics of Kirby crossed with the illustrative prowess of Neal Adams. He and John Romita were the primary movers of Marvel product after Jack Kirby left the building. Buscema's runs on Avengers and FF and Thor are legandary now having gone down as absolute classics.

Wow! 100k for a slightly better than average Ditko 29 page (below) that couldn't do 30k at auction two years ago. What's behind the price jump? Quite a number of rumors abound. Who benefits? Certainly ComicLink benefits as they can now lay claim to selling the most expensive ASM Ditko panel page to date.
The DD 16 page by Romita, highlighted in a previous post, did 41,500--over 10k more than I thought. The FF 112 page by John Buscema/Joe Sinnott was a standout at 15,750.
