Marvel Premiere #25 - John Byrne art (1st Byrne Iron Fist)


Marvel Premiere v1 #25 featuring Iron Fist, 1975 - Iron Fist's last appearance in this title also marks John Byrne's first attempt at the character. The effort is largely disappointing. Layouts are poorly planned and his draftsmanship is amateurish at best. Al McWilliams' inks, unsuited for the super-hero genre, add little to the pencils. Byrne would follow the kung-fu hero to his own self-titled series, eventually making his mark on the character. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Marvel Premiere issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
