X-men #111 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #111 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-men v1 #111, 1978 - After finding the X-men's mansion empty, the Beast tracks them down to a traveling circus, where they perform as freaks of nature John Byrne masterfully captures the Beast's shocked expression on the opening splash. The following spread displays a gallery of mutants across a widened panel. Byrne lays out each panel and page with great care. His illustrations are succinct and cleanly rendered, reinforced by Terry Austin's inks. The high points of this exceptional work are Wolverine's escape (see interior page below) and the intimidating final splash page of a resurgent Magneto. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum and Terry Austin (cover). This is number 3 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or X-men issues.
