X-men #51 - Jim Steranko art & cover

X-men v1 #51, 1968 - Her powers now activated, Polaris must choose to side with the X-men or her purported father Magneto. The drawings of Jim Steranko continue to display a skillful exuberance. Most impressive is his opening splash, which displays the story title as part of a monolithic machine. It's sheer size dwarfs the characters, just as Magneto's shadow looms over it. On the cover, Erik the Red engulfs the X-men in flame but is irrelevant to the story. Regardless, Steranko executes an ominously compelling image. Other artists in this issue include Arnold Roth and John Tartaglione. This is number 3 of 3 X-men issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or X-men issues.
