Marvel Comics Presents #79 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover, John Byrne art

Barry Windsor Smith
Marvel Comics Presents v1 #79, 1991 - After decapitating a wild grizzly, Wolverine is deemed ready for action. But do his captors really have full control of his mind and body? Barry Smith draws his best issue yet, supported by consummate pacing and panel sequencing. Equally superb are his impeccable layouts, making the most of the savagery and action (see interior page below). In John Byrne’s tale, Sunspot (of the New Mutants) has a solo adventure in his native Brazil. Aesthetically pleasing drawings are supported by gray tone patterns. The opening splash is especially rich and textural. Other artists in this issue include Tom Lyle and Joe Rubinstein. This is number 8 of 13 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Smith art and/or number 1 of 1 Marvel Comics Presents issues with Byrne art and/or covers
