Amazing Spider-man annual #13 - John Byrne art


Amazing Spider-man v1 annual #13, 1979 - A thug named Jimbo Ryan not only steals Doctor Octopus' plans, but murders a secret service agent as well. John Byrne teams up with inker Terry Austin on this king size annual, pitting Spider-man against his perennial foe. This lengthy tale is exquisitely drawn with an abundance of fine details. Pages layouts are clear and concise while maintaining a comfortable pace. Byrne's rendition of Spider-man is as good as anyone's, evidenced throughout the story. The artfully sequenced rescue of a falling Jimbo Ryan (page 31) is especially good. Other artists in this issue include& Keith Pollard and Bob McCleod (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Amazing Spider-man Annual issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Amazing Spider-Man issues.
