043-Uncanny X-Men-136-John Byrne

Number 43:

Uncanny X-Men #136 (Marvel – 1980)

Cover art by John Byrne
Inked by Terry Austin

One of the greatest Pencil/Ink teams in the history of comics at the height of their powers.

Check back tomorrow night for more in the count-down of my Top 100 favorite comic book covers.


  1. This is a great cover. It’s a Pieta pose, which is one of the most overdone poses in art history, but Byrne and Austin infuse the characters with such raw emotion. Also, the cracks in the logo are a nice touch, as a leftover of Dark Phoenix breaking it on the previous cover.
