Marvel Team Up #65 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #65, 1978 - Captain Britain, a Marvel character created for the UK market, makes his American debut in this issue. Meeting the Amazing Spider-man for the first time, the hero retells his origin, set in the ancient ruins of Stonehenge. This flashback also conveniently brings US audiences up to speed on this little-known character. John Byrne is tasked with drawing his first stateside adventure, a competent effort that just meets expectations. Dave Hunt continues his run as series inker, streamlining and softening the pencils with mixed results. Other artists in this issue include George Perez (cover). This is number 10 of 22 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
