Avengers #165 - John Byrne art


Avengers v1 #165, 1977 - Siphoning off energy from his super-powered lackeys, Count Nefaria becomes poweful enough to take on all of the Avengers. John Byrne's artwork pulses with excitement as each hero takes a turn at their seemingly invincible foe. The layouts are fast-paced and frenetic. Pablo Marco's inks are better in some pages than others. Wonder Man careening through Avengers mansion (see interior page below) is one of the more spectacular scenes. Other artists in this issue include George Perez (cover). This is number 2 of 17 Avengers issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Avengers issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
