Avengers #184 - John Byrne art

Avengers v1 #184, 1979 - New York Harbor becomes the site for a showdown between the Avengers and a hostile Absorbing Man. John Byrne's artwork is marginally better than previous issues. Interestingly, the inking was a team effort credited to "D. Hands" (for diverse hands). While no names are mentioned, closer examination reveals the work of Dan Green, Brett Breeding, Al Milgrom, Klaus Janson and others. Terry Austin's inks on pages 14 and 22 (see interior page below) have the most polish and clarity. Other artists in this issue include George Perez and Terry Austin (cover). This is number 7 of 17 Avengers issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Avengers issues.
