Marvel Comics Presents #72 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Marvel Comics Presents v1 #72, 1991 - Beginning a multi-part serial, the origin of Wolverine's adamantium claws and skeleton are revealed for the first time. Barry Windsor Smith provides dark, moody drawings for this first person narrative. Pacing and layouts are carefully planned and constructed (see interior page below). The cover follows suit but is a tad less compelling. The overall high degree of craftsmanship is similar to Smith's 1980s work on the X-men. Other artists in this issue include Sandy Plunkett and Paul Gulacy. This is number 1 of 13 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Smith art and/or covers.
