Marvel Team Up #68 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Marvel Team-Up v1 #68, 1978 - Transporting the Man-Thing back to his native swamp, Spider-Man encounters an evil mystic calling himself D'Spayre (his first appearance). One of his first renditions of the muck monster, John Byrne does an largely admirable job. Bob Wiacek's style is a tad more compatible than the previous inker, with an appropriately organic approach. Unlike his straightforward cover, Byrne's story art is a compelling mix of the superhero and horror genres. This is number 13 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.
