Marvel Team-Up #100 - Frank Miller art & cover, John Byrne art

Frank Miller
Marvel Team-Up v1 #100, 1980 - Featuring Spider-man and the Fantastic Four, this double-sized anniversary issue pits the heroes against a mutant mind-controller. Frank Miller's cover portrays the FF's zombie-like state within a graphic, yet compelling design. Inside, his formidable pencils are somewhat softened by Bob Wiacek's inks. Page layouts and pacing are meticulously planned, bringing cohesion to nearly thirty pages. Less impressive is John Byrne's back-up tale, teaming up the Black Panther with the X-men's Storm. His drawings seem more conservative than usual, residing within straightforward layouts. This is number 3 of 5 Marvel Team-Up issues with Miller art and/or covers and number 20 of 20 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
