Predator versus Magnus Robot Fighter #2 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Predator vs Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #2, 1992 - In contrast to the previous cover, Barry Windsor Smith uses a lighter touch in his illustration. The dark and ominous tone has been replaced by solitude and spaciousness. The portraits of Magnus and a partially invisible Predator are oddly overlapped, leaving a large amount of negative space for the background. Not one of Smith's strongest compositions, but his superb rendering offers some compensation. This is number 2 of 2 Predator vs Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Smith art and/or covers.
