Marvel Team-Up #64 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #64, 1977 - Concluding the storyline from the previous issue, Spider-man and Iron Fist are joined by the Daughters of the Dragon. Like before, John Byrne's martial arts figures move with surprising grace. His calm opening splash of an injured, bedridden Iron Fist contrasts against the frequent action scenes on subsequent pages. Though prominently displayed on the cover (above a cringing kung fu hero, no less), Misty Knight and Colleen Wing appear in the story primarily as support characters. Dave Cockrum's fine cover is at the peak of his Marvel career. This is number 9 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.
