X-men #118 - John Byrne art

X-men v1 #118, 1979 - After being rescued at sea by a Japanese ship, the X-men are subsequently taken to the island of Honshu. Their arrival coincides with a conflagration that rages across the port city. This foreign adventure is impeccably drawn by John Byrne. Japanese culture is faithfully portrayed, from the clean architecture to the traditional attire. A bold two-page spread at the beginning shows the ship's view of the raging firestorm. Byrne uses a more nuanced treatment on pages 16-17, where Wolverine and Mariko meet for the first time (see interior page below). Sunfire also makes an appearance, his first since resigning from the team in X-men #94. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 10 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Byrne or >X-men issues on ebay.
