X-men #129 - John Byrne art & cover

X-Men v1 #129, 1980 - Wolverine, Storm and Colossus accompany Professor X to Chicago to locate a newly detected mutant. At the same time, the Hellfire Club is intent on their capture. John Byrne does his first cover in a while, replicating one of interior scenes. Kitty Pryde and Emma Frost make their first appearances in this issue, a contrast between puberty and sexuality. The artist portrays both with consummate skill. Byrne's drawing of a rain-drenched tarmac on page one is excellent, but equally deft are Kitty's innocent wide-eyed expressions (see interior page below). This is number 21 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.
