X-men #112 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #112 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-men v1 #112, 1978 - Transported to Magneto's volcanic lair, the X-men engage in an all-out attack on their powerful foe. John Byrne delivers another phenomenal issue, full of action and visual engagement. His opening splash features all the X-men, tightly placed with the frame but exciting nonetheless. Every page is distinctly drawn within clearly designed layouts. While the fight scenes are impressive, the finely detailed schematic of Magneto's headquarters (pages 12-13) is even more remarkable. Other artists in this issue include George Perez and Bob Layton (cover). This is number 4 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or X-men issues.
