X-men v1 #115, 1978 - Still convalescing in the Savage Land, the X-men are suddenly attacked by the mutant Sauron. Ka-Zar intervenes to halt the hostilities and explain a greater threat to them all. John Byrne's cover effectively uses the half-man, half-pteranadon to frame several other characters, contrasted by their brighter costumes. Inside, the pages are beautifully drawn while maintaining a crisp clarity. The first half of the book is especially brilliant, with its astounding two page spread of a raging Wolverine. This is number 7 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or X-men issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
