Marvel Team Up #62 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #62, 1977 - The recently introduced Ms. Marvel enters the fray against the Super-Skrull, obviously done to help lure readers into her own title. John Byrne's opening scene brings readers right into the midst of battle with the villain demonstrating his aggressive power. Curiously Ms. Marvel's first appearance in the story is framed within a large panel rather than the more deserving full page splash. In general, the Byrne artwork just meets expectations but with a minimum of fanfare. Gil Kane is this issue's cover artist. This is number 7 of 22 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Marvel Team-Up issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.

  1. On the cover, Ms Marvel seems to be drawn (and inked?) by Kane, but Super Skrull and Spiderman are not.

  2. I hate to tell you, but the cover to Daredevil #44 was by Gentleman Gene, not Steranko.
