Marvel Team Up #75 - John Byrne art, mis-attributed Byrne cover

Marvel Team-Up v1 #75, 1978 - When arsonists set a tenement building on fire, Spider-Man and Luke Cage have their hands full saving tenants. Drawn with warmth and sincerity, John Byrne captures the bravery and dedication of New York City's firemen. Prior to all the explosive action, Peter Parker and Mary Jane's arrival at a disco is one of the more interestingly retro scenes. Kudos to Al Gordon, whose inks reinforce the excitement of the initial pencils. Despite what some comic book price guides say, Bob Hall, not Byrne, is the cover artist. This is number 17 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.
