Uncanny X-men v1 #214, 1987 - An entity named Malice takes over Dazzler's mind and body, wreaking havoc amongst the X-men. Barry Smith and Art Adams join forces on the cover (their only collaboration?), blending their surprisingly compatible styles. Inside, Smith's high degree of craft is evident in the drawings, layouts and pacing of each page. Additionally, Bob Wiacek does a credible job with the inks, adding definition without sacrificing detail. This is number 8 of 9 X-men issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or X-men issues. See also this blog's Barry Smith checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
