Spider-woman #26 - John Byrne cover

John Byrne
Spider-woman v1 #26, 1980 - An awkwardly posed Spider-woman braces herself against an oncoming saw blade. Her hands dig into the back wall, forming cracks that suggest a spider's web. An inset of the villain is placed on the lower right, almost as an afterthought. John Byrne's layout is not among his best, although his drawing skills remain largely intact. Other artists in this issue include Steve Leialoha and Mike Esposito. This is number 1 of 1 Spider-woman issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Spider-woman issues.

  1. Sinnott inks. Sinnott inked Byrne on an FF run around the time of this cover. He could adapt his style well.
