Marvel Team Up #55 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #55, 1977 - Spider-man is flung into outer space aboard a runaway rocket, arriving at the setting of his next adventure. He soon encounters an enlarged Warlock, a bronze age hero whose own (first) series ends around the same time period. John Byrne adequately handles the artistic chores, even inserting two splash pages for maximum effect. His opening splash is the story's highlight, depicting Spider-man surrounded by miniature supporting characters and villains. These hallucinations are brought on by the sudden change in gravity, and Byrne's execution is almost humorous in nature. The second splash logically introduces Warlock into the plot, but may also have been used to attract new readers to the character. This story was later reprinted in Warlock v2 #5. This is number 3 of 22 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
