Over at Comic Book Resources, Brian Cronin has been posting a new month-long series that examines the first US pro comic work by notable creators! His latest post is a look at the incredible Barry Windsor-Smith back in 1968 when he was just 20 years old and just Barry Smith. Go enjoy the nascent artwork of this fantastic artist!
Here’s a look at one page of his work from his first work in the February 1969 issue of X-Men #53. It’s very easy to see the influence of Jack Kirby in his early work, but his style has evolved tremendously over the intervening 43 years.
