Alpha Flight #13 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Alpha Flight v1 #13, 1984 - In the wake of Guardian's death, Heather holds a funeral for her fallen husband with all of Alpha Flight in attendance. As the cover shows, Wolverine guests stars in this issue. Arguably his best work of the series, John Byrne employs silent panels and open borders for the first half of "Nightmare". The pages are deftly drawn and perfectly sequenced. Additionally, his haunting opening splash is a direct homage to artist Jim Steranko. This is number 13 of 28 Alpha Flight issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
