X-Men #131 - John Byrne art & cover

X-Men v1 #131 - Kitty Pryde goes through a baptism of fire, helping the X-men rescue their teammates from the Hellfire Club's White Queen. Along with his terrific artwork, John Byrne uses some clever sequencing for Nightcrawler's multi-pronged attack (see interior page below) and the X-men's quiet transition from heroes to civilians (page 26). As usual, the most gripping scene occurs on the opening splash, as Kitty desperately tries to lose her pursuers in a back alley. Despite the hoopla around her debut last issue, Dazzler plays a smaller role in her second appearance. This is number 23 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
