I am very proud to present an exclusive interview with the quintessential and definitive Hulk artist, Sal Buscema. My good friend and fellow Hulk fan Jason Loker recently spent 45 minutes talking with Sal about his thoughts and experiences with the Hulk. To my knowledge, this is the first interview done by Sal that is focused on the Hulk and it is great to hear Sal talk passionately about the “big green guy.” The interview is packed full of great insights from Sal on a variety of topics such as Sal’s experience with Stan Lee, why Sal’s favorite character is the Hulk, his penchant for drawing emotions so well, Sal’s take on the Hulk TV series and Avengers movie, Sal’s favorite Hulk story … just to name a few.
I want to give a huge, hulking thank-you to Sal Buscema for taking the time out of his day to talk about a shared passion with his fans. Listening to the interview, I was transported to my childhood and the very fond memories I have of pulling Sal’s Hulk issues off the spinner rack at the corner store and reading the issues until the covers fell off. I also want to thank and recognize Sal’s art agent Al Czarnecki who made this podcast possible. A big thank you to Jason as well for letting me in on such a great experience although I have to admit that listening to him talk with Sal makes me just a little green with envy.
And if the podcast wasn’t enough good news, I am excited to share that Sal is currently accepting art commissions through his agent, Al Czarnecki. Al is a great guy to talk to and very easy to deal with when setting up a commission. I am currently in line for a Sal commission myself and I highly recommend contacting Al via his email address below if you are interested in getting a commission.
