X-men #61 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams
X-men v1 #61, 1969 - Taking to the skies, the Angel faces off against Sauron, a half-man/half pteradactyl with illusionary powers. The first several pages are appropriately spacious, including a double-page spread that recaps the previous issue within the villain's grotesque wingspan. Though the action scenes pulsate with excitement, Neal Adams' best moments occur on pages 13-14. The interaction between characters shows an emotional and psychological depth reminiscent of Adams' Ben Casey strips. Whether depicting realism or fantasy, Adams displays an uncommon brilliance. This is number 6 of 9 X-men issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or X-men issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
