Power Man and Iron Fist #50 - John Byrne art


Power Man v1 #50, 1978 - The masthead heralds the beginning of a new partnership between the two heroes. Having his innocence finally proven,  this special issue briefly retells Power Man's origin from Luke Cage, Hero for Hire #1. John Byrne delivers a terrific splash page, depicting the heroes at a celebratory party. The background not only recalls Power Man's escape from prison but serves as a metaphor for his newfound freedom. Byrne sets a high standard for the start of this new series. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 3 of 11 Power Man issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Power Man issues.
