The COLORED images are from 2006's ANNIHILATION: SILVER SURFER #1, pencilled by RENATO ARLEM.
The BLACK/WHITE images are from 1969/70's SILVER SUFER #4-12, pencilled by JOHN BUSCEMA.
I can't believe Marvel did not catch this full-on swiping of another artist's work, especially Buscema's, who DEFINED the look of Marvel for an entire decade-plus. His work is legend and very well-known by fans and pros.
Doing an HOMAGE is one thing... artists do it sometimes, but usually include a little note telling the comic reader who they are emulating (ex: "After Kirby"). But this... this appears to be full on copying another artists' work panel-after-panel and selling it as his own.
And there's this....
Pulse interview excerpt from May 2006:
THE PULSE: What were some of the things about this particular character that interested you in drawing his adventures in this format?
ARLEM: Not only working in a big publisher like Marvel, but the chance to work with a character that was my childhood favorite, that had been immortalized by the great masters: Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and John Buscema. About the style, I think lately great artists have appeared in the comics industry, but one that really caught my attention was Alex Maleev. I really think his art is fantastic and I clearly use his work for inspiration.
[*JIMSMASH NOTE: Maleev, watch out!!!!]
THE PULSE: How tough was it to draw a character like the Silver Surfer that doesn't have a lot of costume and more or less a big shiny guy?
ARLEM: I think what’s hardest is finding positions that don’t make him look clumsy on the board, something like giving balance, being aggressive and light at the same time.
THE PULSE: Who are some other Silver Surfer artists whose work you admired?
ARLEM: Jack Kirby, for the greatness and creative capacity of his work and John Buscema, because he was a master. I think John Byrne also made a fantastic history for the Surfer, the one in which he breaks free from the force field that trapped him on Earth.
THE PULSE: How is being a part of a bigger event a challenge when working on something like this?
ARLEM: I think it’s keeping the material with an attractive quality throughout the whole event, because the work is hard and tiring, but the fans appreciation is gratifying.
