Iron Man #243 - Barry Windsor Smith art

Iron Man v1 #243, 1989 - With Tony Stark hospitalized due to a gunshot wound, the plot revolves around Iron Man's many supporting characters. Bob Layton does a decent job with the pencils, but it's Barry Smith's inks that elevate the artwork. Sophisticated and detailed, the artist's finishes evoke a neo-classical look and feel. While less spectacular than his previous work on Iron Man #232, the effort nonetheless meets expectations. Bob Layton is the cover artist. This is number 3 of 3 Iron Man issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or Iron Man issues. See also this blog's Smith checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
