Champions #15 - John Byrne art

The Champions v1 #15, 1977 - The team's deadly encounter with The Swarm concludes with this issue. John Byrne nears the end of his run. and pencils his last issue of the series. Despite some promising-looking pages by the artist, much of it falters due to the sloppy inks of Mike Esposito. A step down from his previous issue, many scenes lack definition and clarity. Many of the characters' faces seem completely redrawn. The panels with the Black Widow fare worse than others, especially the close-up on page 22, panel five. Other artists in this issue include Al Milgrom (cover). This is number 5 of 6 Champions issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Champions issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
