Marvel Team Up #70 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Marvel Team-Up v1 #70, 1978 - Transformed into the Living Monolith, Professor Abdol proceeds to decimate the city with only Thor and Spider-Man to stop him. John Byrne makes an admirable effort, but his pencils are diminished by Tony DeZuniga's inks. The opening splash and certain layouts nicely highlight the villain's size and scale. Beyond that, the finished art lacks both clarity and stability. Byrne's style emerges now and again but not enough to compensate. This is number 15 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.
