Personal History

Sal Buscema (pronounced: Byou-sema) was born Silvio Buscema in Brooklyn, New York, on January 26, 1936. He is the son of a barber and the youngest of four children, including Alfred, John, and Carol. They are first generation immigrants as their father came to America from Italy in 1973.

He has said of his more famous brother, John Buscema, that he was "greatly responsible for me pursuing drawing. ... John was definitely an inspiration."

He has also cited Norman Rockwell, Robert Fawcett, Al Parker, George Tuska, and Hal Foster's Prince Valiant comic strip.[1]
