Marvel Comics Presents #83 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover, Steve Ditko art

Barry Windsor Smith
Marvel Comics Presents v1 #83, 1991 - Using Miss Hines as bait, the Professor tries to obliterate Weapon X once and for all. Nearing the end of his run, Barry Smith captures all the rage and intensity of Wolverine's vengeance. His layouts and illustration work in unison, resulting in an outstanding effort. The opening scenes (see interior page above) showcase the artist's sharpened sense of design. Steve Ditko's Human Torch tale is marginally enhanced by Erik Larsen's inks, but falters nonetheless. Other artists in this issue include Dwayne Turner and Jose Marzan. This is number 12 of 13 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Smith art and/or covers and number 3 of 3 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko, Smith or Marvel Comics Presents issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist, Smith checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
