Power Man #47 - mis-attributed Barry Windsor Smith art


Luke Cage, Power Man v1 #47, 1977 - No Barry Smith art, despite what some comic book price guides say. The opening page credits George Tuska as penciller and "B. Smith" as inker. Rifling through the pages, it becomes more obvious that the inks are by another bronze age artist, Bob Smith. A quick review of other works from the same period seem to be consistent in style. Also, Barry Smith left mainstream comics around the mid-70s and returned to Marvel a decade later. See today's posts or more Smith or Power Man issues.
