Ghost Rider v3 #20 - John Byrne art

Ghost Rider v3 #20 marvel comic book cover art by Gil Kane
Ghost Rider v3 #20, 1976 - Concluding the two part storyline begun in Daredevil #138, the Ghost Rider and Daredevil face off against the Death Stalker. John Byrne's drawings are merely adequate, with a couple of exceptions: page 15 panel 1's dramatic confrontation and the multi-figured sequence on page 6 (see interior page below), reminiscent of Eadweard Muybridge. That aside, the artwork suffers most from the passive inks of Don Perlin. Details are absent in some panels and oversimplified in others. Unfortunately his approach emphasizes, rather than compensates, for Byrne's inexperience. Other artists in this isse include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Ghost Rider issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Ghost Rider issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
