X-men #114 - John Byrne art & cover

X-men v1 #114, 1978 - Jean Grey and the Beast return to New York, unaware that their teammates survived an explosion by tunneling into the Savage Land. John Byrne's cover not only depicts the missing X-men, but captures the devastation felt by the survivors. Much of the story is set in a hidden prehistoric world, revealed in a stunning full page splash. The artwork throughout is sensational and made more so by Terry Austin's inks. With the re-introduction of Sauron from X-men #60, Byrne pays homage to Neal Adams (page 27 panel 5) and ends the tale with a second unforgettable splash page. This is number 6 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.
