X-men #126 - John Byrne art

X-Men v1 #126, 1979 - Mutant X escapes his specialized cell, leaving a wake of mummified bodies for the X-men to follow. Once cornered, the mutant bends reality to his will, allowing John Byrne to draw several creatively nightmarish scenes. The figures of Wolverine and Nightcrawler twist and turn almost beyond recognition (pages 26-27). These distortions, while seemingly optical in nature, are perfectly executed. Byrne ends the tale with an eerie silhouette of Mutant X, defined only by the textured background. Other artists in this issue include Dave Cockrum (cover). This is number 18 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
