John Byrne’s first Action issue. I pulled this panel to show that the series is a little dated. It really wasn’t until the 2000s that comics really began to balance words and pictures. Even the great ones like Byrne fell prey to being in love with their own scripts.

They also used to talk way too much during fight scenes. Like you have time to lecture a guy while you’re beating his ass.

Still a great comic, though.  And a great cover.
