New Mutants #42 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
New Mutants v1 #42, 1986 - Graceful and lithe, the characters on this cover resemble ballet dancers more than super-heroes (perhaps the tights reinforce this as well). Barry Smith's classical approach brings a sophisticated feel to nearly all his 1980s covers, and this one is no exception. Other artists in this issue include Jackson Guice and Kyle Baker. This is number 4 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.
