Predator versus Magnus Robot Fighter #1 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Predator vs Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #1, 1992 - Valiant Publishing's revival of Magnus Robot Fighter brought back one of the more interesting science fiction characters of the silver age. By the 1980s, combining popular characters across different publishers and mediums was fairly commonplace. Magnus pitted against the movie alien Predator seems a less obvious yet interesting combination. Barry Windsor Smith lends his talents to this superbly drawn cover. The robot fighter's face is deadly serious, his fist clenched in determination. He's poised in shadow, oblivious to the threat emerging into the light behind him. While very different from Russ Manning's streamlined style, Smith makes Magnus his own with this powerful and memorable rendition. This is number 1 of 2 Predator vs Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Smith art and/or covers.
