X-men #113 - John Byrne art & cover

X-men v1 #113, 1978 - The heroes escape Magneto's shackles, but find themselves trapped in his imploding base, hidden deep within a volcano. John Byrne draws the X-men's showdown with Magneto with verve and enthusiasm. Just as interesting, a sequence the story's beginning offers vignettes of Storm's tumultuous childhood. Byrne's depiction of her perfectly captures the character's determination and humanity. While the cover lacks depth, the interior artwork meets and even exceeds expectations. This is number 5 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.
