X-Men #139 - John Byrne art & cover

X-Men v1 #139, 1980 - Wolverine and Nightcrawler travel to northern Canada, the Angel rejoins the team, and Kitty Pryde takes on the codename "Sprite" . Helping out Alpha Flight, Wolverine takes part in the hunt for the Wendigo, coincidentally a foe from his first mission (Incredible Hulk #181). John Byrne delivers a work of exceptional quality. The opening scene displays a single point perspective of Angel in the danger room, followed by a breathtaking spread of the X-men's current lineup. The artwork transitions from an urban environment to the Canadian wilderness with great ease. Byrne caps this issue with a gripping splash of the Wendigo's sudden appearance.  This is number 31 of 35 X-men issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
