Avengers #187 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Avengers v1 #1871979 - Receiving a distress call from Quicksilver, the Avengers arrive on Wundagore Mountain, only to be captured by the demon-possessed Scarlet Witch. John Byrne begins with a disorienting yet superb cover design. Inside, the artist concludes this origin storyline with great skill and confidence. Modred's attack on the Avengers is especially well drawn (pages 4-8), employing fine linework and texture. An alternate view of the cover scene (see interior page below) is equally compelling. This is number 10 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.
