Marvel Comics Presents #81 / Weapon X - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover, Steve Ditko, Marshall Rogers / Al Williamson art

Barry Windsor Smith
Marvel Comics Presents Weapon X v1 #81, 1991 - Like the previous issue, Steve Ditko’s Captain America tale seems more comic than serious in tone. Just as disappointing is Marshall Rogers’ Daredevil feature. Stiff and lacking spontaneity, the artwork mostly dulls the senses (even despite Al Williamson’s inks). By contrast, Barry Smith’s latest Wolverine chapter is visually striking. The mutant fends off an army on the superb opening splash, colored blood red in intensity. The following pages are tame by comparison, building up to the climactic second splash of Wolverine confronting his captor. Other artists in this issue include James Fry and Mike Mignola. This is number 10 of 13 Marvel Comics Presents with Smith art and/or covers, number 1 of 3 Marvel Comics Presents with Ditko art and/or covers, number 1 of 1 Marvel Comics Presents with Smith art and/or covers and number 2 of 10 Marvel Comics Presents with Williamson art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Smith gallery. Find >this issue or more >Ditko, >Rogers, >Smith, >Williamson or >Marvel Comics Presents issues on ebay.
