Marvel Comics Presents #84 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Marvel Comics Presents v1 #84, 1991 - Despite all the tortuous experiments forced upon him, Logan must endure one final test. This final chapter of "Weapon X" concludes with three times the number of pages as previous serials. Barry Smith's exceptional wrap-around cover has a solemnity that carries over to the interior story. Exquisite and thoughtful, his renditions include an opening sequence of silent panels and pages of a hallucinatory nightmare (see interior page below). Ending his run on the series, Smith's accomplishment is regarded the finest Wolverine tale ever produced. Other artists in this issue include Dwayne Turner and Jose Marzan. This is number 13 of 13 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Smith art and/or covers.
