Machine Man (limited series) v2 #3, 1984 - Barry Smith's cover design begins to look a tad static, but makes sense given its order in the sequence of covers. Inside, the artist continues to impress and even surpasses some of his works from a decade earlier. Of the two splash pages, the one of an enormous floating sanctuary is the more compelling. Almost dreamlike, the scene contains a detailed moon (see interior page below) reminiscent of another Smith drew in Marvel Premiere #3. Among the many superbly rendered panels, page 17's menacing shot of the Iron Man of 2020 is the most exciting of all. This is number 3 of 4 Machine Man v2 issues with Smith art and/or covers.
