X-Men #141 - John Byrne art & cover

X-Men v1 #141, 1981 - From the post-apocalyptic future, a full grown Kate Pryde sends her consciousness back into her younger self, intent on changing events that could end the world. The dismal title typography on page one reinforces the devastation of a Manhattan yet to come. John Byrne contrasts the darkness and destruction with a brighter, present day splash of Kitty in the Danger Room. Other pages seem to employ smaller panels than usual, but no less exquisite in their detail. Perhaps most astonishing is the cover, where Byrne spotlights Kate and the aged Wolverine. Behind them, an outsized poster shows a gallery of mutants who've been captured or killed. On a different note, Mystique makes her second appearance (her first on this series). This is number 33 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.
