X-Men #140 - John Byrne art & cover

X-Men v1 #140, 1980 - Joining Alpha Flight in the Canadian wilderness, Wolverine and Nightcrawler fight for their lives against the carnivorous Wendigo. John Byrne nears the end of his long run on this title, but still maintains a high standard. His skillful cover seems especially designed to show off Wolverine's new costume. Among the story pages, Nightcrawler's acrobatic avoidance of the beast is a high point (see interior page below). The issue also serves as a precursor to the first Alpha Flight series, which Byrne would write as well as draw. This is number 32 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.
