X-men #205 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover

Uncanny X-men #205, 1986 - Injured and disoriented, Wolverine is hunted down by Lady Deathstrike and her associates. Energizer, an adolescent member of Power Pack, tries to aid his escape. This solo adventure is exceptionally drawn by Barry Smith. From the pulsing monochromatic cover to the iconic title page to the blizzard-like setting, the artist employs fine details throughout. Impeccably paced, the final confrontation seems all the more brutal due to its absence of text or dialogue (page 19). All in all, this outstanding effort seems comparable to Smith's Weapon X saga. This is number 6 of 9 X-men issues with Smith art and/or covers.
