X-men #109 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #109 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-men v1 #109, 1977 - Upon their return to Earth, the X-men face Weapon Alpha, a Canadian super-hero intent on capturing Wolverine. This John Byrne creation would later be known as Vindicator, then Guardian, who would eventually form the super-team Alpha Flight. With this second issue, the artist begins to make the characters his own, especially favoring Wolverine. Byrne's storytelling is clear, concise and widely appealing. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum and Terry Austin (cover). This is number 2 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.
