Marvel Team Up #63 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #63, 1977 - Spider-man meets Iron Fist for the first time, not long after the cancellation of the kung-fu hero's own series. The same level of artistic skill that John Byrne brought to those issues is evident here. The book opens with a splash page of Iron Fist in mid-kick toward the reader, a stunning visual that commands your attention. This is one of several outstanding drawings, including the Iron Fist's defeat at the hands of the similarly-garbed Silver Serpent. Misty Knight, Iron Fist's companion, makes a pair of appearances, joining the storyline toward the end. Dave Cockum is the cover artist. This is number 8 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.
