New Mutants v1 #36, 1986 - Similar in tone to earlier issues on the title, Barry Windsor Smith's cover exudes a dark, sinister feel. Kitty Pryde of the X-men is bound and suspended in marionette-like fashion. A sword, a satanic symbol, and numerous skulls surround her limp figure. Smith's terrific pencils are further augmented by the eerily cool color palette. Other artists in this issue include Mary Wilshire and Bill Sienkiewicz. This is number 1 of 10 New Mutants issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or New Mutants issues. See also this blog's Smith checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
