Marvel Team Up #54 - John Byrne art

Marvel Team-Up v1 #54, 1977 - Spider-man's team-up with the Hulk and Woodgod concludes, beginning with one of Gil Kane's pervasive covers. As in the previous issue, a bold double page spread awaits the reader following the title page. John Byrne's layouts and general pacing are more confident, varying the panel grids and placement. The artist fits the length of an entire rocket within a single diagonal panel on page 30. The effect nicely emphasizes the spacecraft's speed and velocity without being too phallic. The fine pages propel Spider-man toward a new setting and the start of a new storyline. This is number 2 of 22 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
