Marvel Team Up #66 - John Byrne art


Marvel Team-Up v1 #66, 1978 - Spider-man and Captain Britain are imprisoned in Murder World, a deadly game-like environment created by the villain Arcade. John Byrne's artwork is appealing enough, yet he enhances the readers' enjoyment with creatively inspired layouts. The second spread makes use of a pinball machine's shape while touting the story title. Similarly, the game's symmetrical orientation perfectly fits the panel sequences on page 11. Dave Hunt proves to be a more than capable inker. Note that this issue is Arcade's first full appearance. This is number 11 of 22 Marvel Team-Up issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
