X-men #121 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #121 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-men v1 #121, 1979 - The Canadian government demands that Wolverine returns to their employ, giving the X-men a choice to either surrender him or fight. After brief cameos in the previous issue, Snowbird, Sasquatch, Shaman, Northstar and Aurora make their first full appearances as members of Alpha Flight. John Byrne tempers the inevitable fight sequences with scenes of everyday Calgary (the artist himself appears on page 16). Including the two splash pages, the story art is visually pleasing without sacrificing the storytelling. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 13 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
