New Mutants #43 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
New Mutants #43, 1986 - One of Barry Smith's busier covers, this brawl among young mutants shows nearly the entire team. The striped background is starkly decorative, but also increases depth and adds perspective. Note that on the lower left, the alien Warlock sports boxing gloves to add a bit of comic relief. Other artists in this issue include Steve Purcell and Whilce Portacio. This is number 5 of 10 New Mutants issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or New Mutants issues.
