Alpha Flight v1 #3, 1983 - After Marinna's kidnapping, the team tracks her to a hidden complex in the frozen north. Their arrival triggers elaborate traps, such as the complex grid of rods that enclose Aurora on the cover. Although devoid of most color, the perspective-laden image is beautifully executed by John Byrne. He expends the same effort inside, using two splashes and two double-page panels. Toward the end of the book, Marinna's captor is suddenly confronted by the Sub-mariner and the Invisible Girl. Within the same issue, Byrne also does a back-up story (with Wolverine cameo) and a single page pin-up of the Guardian (formerly Vindicator). This is number 3 of 28 Alpha Flight issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Alpha Flight issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
