Machine Man (limited series) v2 #4, 1985 - A final battle between the Iron Man of 2020 and Machine Man comprise the anticipated climax of this limited series. Unlike the previous three issues, Barry Windsor Smith produces the artwork in its entirety. The layouts, pacing and above all, the drawings are breathtaking. The fight scenes are violent but not gratuitous, yet beautifully choreographed. Other pages are equally impressive, including the group dynamics of the opening splash, the expansive citywide view from above (see interior page below) and poignant farewells in the epilogue. This is Smith at his very best. This is number 4 of 4 Machine Man v2 issues with Smith art and/or covers.
