Champions #14 - John Byrne art


The Champions v1 #14, 1977 -A creature called The Swarm endangers the city, requiring a certain amount of detail in depicting a mass of insects. Iceman debuts his new uniform, although it's nearly indistinguishable in fighting form. John Byrne's best drawn pages this issue showcase the Black Widow (see interior page below) and Ghost Rider (page 17), respectively. The massive swarm of killer bees in the final panel seems sadly anticlimactic. Mike Esposito comes on board as inker, using a less streamlined approach than his predecessor. Cover by Gil Kane and Al Milgrom. This is number 4 of 6 Champions issues with Byrne art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Byrne gallery.
