X-Men #143 - John Byrne art

X-Men v1 #143, 1981 - The story replays an earlier event in X-men #96, in which Storm ultimately triumphs over a horde of demons. John Byrne's interpretation gives it a fresh new look, segueing into the current dilemma of a demon run amok. The artist's title typography drips and oozes eerily into the splash page. The story itself is an obvious nod to the 1978 Ridley Scott film, substituting a demon for the Alien and Kitty Pryde for Sigourney Weaver. The pacing and suspense are strikingly similar. This baptism of fire for the X-men's newest member is also Byrne's last effort on the series. This is number 35 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
