New Mutants #46 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
New Mutants v1 #46, 1986 - Bursting onto the scene, the X-men are featured on this Barry Smith cover. Storm, Nightcrawler and Colossus get lost within the busy layout, but the color palette brings them forward. This disorderly design is atypical of Smith, yet his draftsmanship remains intact and the final image is no less compelling. Other artists in this issue include Jackson Guice and Kyle Baker. This is number 8 of 10 New Mutants issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Smith or New Mutants issues.
