X-men #128 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #128 marvel comic book cover art by John Byrne
X-Men v1 #128, 1979 - Proteus takes over his estranged father's body, wreaking havoc throughout the city. The X-men attack, trying to separate him from his hostage, Moira MacTaggart. The villain's reality twisting powers are most evident on John Byrne's opening page. The buildings undulate around him like images in a funhouse mirror. Toward the end, a final confrontation between combatants results in a massive crackling explosion. Byrne simulates this beautifully with a pattern of finely interwoven lines in concentric loops. Other artists in this issue include George Perez (cover). This is number 20 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.
