Spectacular Spider-man v2 #101 - John Byrne cover

John Byrne
Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-man v2 #101, 1985 - Spider-man's black costume era was the perfect excuse for a black and white cover design. John Byrne had made previous attempts on other titles, but this one exceeds them all. Shape and form define the central character and surrounding skyscrapers. Not only do the window patterns create perspective and depth, but their sheer variety increases visual interest. Other artists in this issue include Juan Alacantara and Jack Abel. This is number 4 of 5 Spectacular Spider-man issues with Byrne art and/or covers.

  1. Byrne has stated on his forum that he originally intended for the book's logo to be B&W as well.

    However, the production dept wouldn't go for it.
