This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Rich Buckler has been an American comic book artist, perhaps best known for his work on Marvel's Fantastic Four in the mid-seventies, and for co-creating the character Deathlok (with writer Doug Moench) in Astonishing Tales #25. He was often as a cover artist.  In this comic book career spanning almost 40 years, Rich Buckler has drawn over 400 comic books/graphic novels.  Some of the works for which he is best known include Captain America, Rampaging Hulk, Wonder Woman, Classic Superman and Classic Spider Man. He also did uncredited pencil art for the Phantom syndicated newspaper strip
    
He is the author of "HOW TO DRAW DYNAMIC COMIC BOOKS" (Vanguard Publishing 2008) and his artwork is featured on U.S. Postage Stamps (both Marvel & D.C. series).

As a surrealist painter, primarily in acrylic, Buckler made his international debut in 2002 with a solo exhibition in Paris.  He has also exhibited in New York at Soho and Chelsea galleries. Painting titles include Green Man, DioxyribonucleusArgus And Sphinx.

His work is represented in the German language edition of the International Encyclopedia of fantastic, surrealist, symbolist and visionary artists

Independent curator and art historian D.F. Coleman said of Buckler's painting that it "...drives home the sense of the sublime anguish and delight felt in the presence of some uncomprehending force greater than the sum total of human experience...hauntingly authentic art that transcends time and the power of words." 

Dr. Akhter Ahsen at the Group Exhibition at Amseterdam Whitney International Art, 2000, commented on the visionary aspect of Rich Buckler's work: "His canvases are icons of the Newness that is the essence of surrealism.  It is as if the past were somehow revisited by the artist, there to be synthesized by a secret Universal Quintessence, and then re-interpreted for the present. . . .Not without a sense of humor and a delight in the irrational and absurd, his art is rich with lucid commentary on the ordinary and the miraculous... this is the alchemical world of an artist who is continually unfolding as a painter and as a person, a surrealist whose mastery of craft and technique produces mature visual statements that evoke positive energy, love and desire, wonderment and faith and mystery and hope."
