X-men #55 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

X-men v1 #55 marvel comic book page art by Barry Windsor Smith

X-men v1 #55, 1969 - Barry Smith's third cover is marginally better than the others in the series. His inexperience shows in the figure drawings and attempts at foreshortening. The layout, centered around a main figure, is commonly used. Still, combined with the intense color palette and textural background, Smith's artwork is eye-catching. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck, Arnold Roth, Sam Grainger and Vince Colletta. This is number 3 of 9 X-men issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or X-men issues. See also this blog's Barry Windsor Smith checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
