This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Buscema (1927-2002)

Born in Brooklyn, New York  on December 11, 1927, Giovanni Natale Buscema. John Buscema became an illustrator much influenced by work of his predecessors Norman Rockwell, Robert Fawcett and Al Dorne.  He attended the High School of Music in Brooklyn, and the Pratt Institute night school for drawing and design. 

In 1948, he began working for Marvel comics, then known as Timely Comics, and stayed a year and a half before going into free-lance illustration.  Because of the shrinking popularity of comic books, he turned increasingly to other forms of commercial art until 1966, when Marvel hired him back.  He then stayed with that company until his retirement in 1996, although in the 1970s, he began an art school.

He also wrote a book with Stan Lee, How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way.

On January 10, 2002, John Buscema died from cancer, leaving a wife, son and daughter and grandchildren.
