Alpha Flight #8 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Alpha Flight v1 #8, 1984 - Aurora is kidnapped by Deadly Earnest, prompting Northstar to rescue her from the villain's lair. A masked, sword-wielding woman named Nemesis joins his cause against the common enemy. In a separate tale, the origin of Snowbird reaches its conclusion. John Byrne's artwork is consistent with previous issues, opening with a bold splash that segues into a recap of events. Some panels are more detailed than others, especially the background architecture and interiors. Northstar's discovery of his sister is a pivotal scene, emphasized by her prominence within the layout (see interior page below). This is number 8 of 28 Alpha Flight issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Alpha Flight issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
