X-men #108 - John Byrne art (1st Byrne X-men)

X-men v1 #108 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-men v1 #108, 1977 - Sent to stop a power-mad alien emperor, the X-men must also diffuse a device that could destroy reality itself. Picking up the continuity from last issue, John Byrne's sharp drawing style brings greater detail to the settings and characters. Abstract concepts such as the fabric of the universe and the "energy lattice" are deftly visualized for the reader. His first of a long run of X-men issues, Byrne delivers an impressive effort and begins an equally long collaboration with inker Terry Austin. The story also guest stars the Starjammers, making only their second appearance. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 1 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or X-men issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
