AVENGERS #182 (1979)

A little more on the Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver plot line, and an appearance by The Toad.  The team meets a crazy old gypsy man who says he is the father of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and Wanda and Pietro decide to follow him to Europe to learn more.

Does that art look a little un-John Byrne-y?

That’s ’cause it was inked by the great Klaus Janson.  I reported on my other blog about what a difference his inking made.  You should go check it out–I have “before” and “after” pictures of Frank Miller’s Daredevil, and the changes are staggering.
