This biography from the Archives of AskART:


American comic book artist, born in Brooklyn, New York.  Buscema attended the High School of Music and Art in New York City.  He served at Fort Belvoir in Washington, D.C. during his Army service in 1956.  Afterwards he joined Creative Arts Studio in Washington, D.C.  An employee of Marvel Comics since his first work, Gunhawk, in 1968, Buscema has contributed extensively to such titles as, Ghost Rider, Sub-Mariner, Captain America, Defenders, Conan the Barbarian, The Incredible Hulk, and New Mutants.  He served as the penciller for Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man, completing over 80 issues in the series.  In the early 1990s he has continued to work as a penciller on comic books for Marvel. He is one of the few comic book artists to ink over his own pencil layouts.  While Buscema semi-retired in the 1990s, he continues to pencil the Spider-Girl series from time to time.  Sal is the brother of the late comic book artist, John Buscema.
