New Mutants #47 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
New Mutants v1 #47, 1986 - Warlock's father Magus takes up the bulk of space on this convoluted cover design. Barry Smith tries to fit in most of the mutant characters against a backdrop of technology-inspired texture. Despite the confusion and lack of breathing room, the scene overall is capably drawn. Other artists in this issue include Jackson Guice and Kyle Baker. This is number 9 of 10 New Mutants issues with Smith art and/or covers.

  1. I just wanted to make a small correction on your descriptor for New Mutants #47's cover. The big techno-organic giant in the background is in fact not Warlock. It's Magus, his father who has been hunting for his son to engage him in a fight to the death.

    Your actual observation of the cover's style and presentation are, however, dead on.

  2. Right you are. I made the correction accordingly. Thanks for keeping an eye out and for your supportive words. Just FYI, the Smith studio posted a comment on New Mutants #48.
