Iron Fist #13 - John Byrne art


Iron Fist v1 #13, 1977 - Meeting a friend on a Manhattan pier at midnight, Iron Fist falls into an ambush instead, fronted by the weaponized Boomerang. John Byrne does a nice job setting the stage on the opening splash, complete with a New York skyline in the background. Dan Adkins' inks fare much better this time, adding clarity to the original pencils. Byrne's action scenes take up most of the story, but it's a small, thoughtful panel on page 17 that stands out (see interior page below). Misty Knight painfully decides to exit, leaving a devastated Iron Fist behind. In an apt metaphor, the long horizontal panel extends the moment before shattering like glass. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 13 of 15 Iron Fist issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Iron Fist issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
