Best Marvel Illustrators
To begin, the art is EPIC Marvel art. The artist on the series is John Romita Jr. In the 1980s, the artist came to fame with his long-standing work on Amazing Spider-Man and the Uncanny X-Men. With writer Chris Claremont, “He’ll Never Make Me Cry” is an aftermath to Secret Wars (1984). In the less important story after the event, the artist’s pencils with gigantic physiques and detailed backgrounds in full coloring make the comic a true present.
Certainly, Glynis Wein’s coloring matches the epic tone of the story with real contrast with skin tone, though the colorful costumes add dinstinctiveness. In addition, Dan Green’s inking is a highlight of this issue. And the ensemble pencils of the X-Men show perspective between the foreground and the background with details of the destroyed bar. Notably, their proportionate musculature and ripping physiques have added power. Nevertheless, the comic excels at drama and the panel on the left shows the artist’s mastery of scenery and detail!
After a brief misunderstanding, Piotr changes into Colossus and fights back against Juggernaut. Though the battle is lop-sided, it remains one of the most heated fisticuffs between the two rivals.
Definitely, collect this battle in single issue for the historic rivalry and the significance in the Piotr-Kitty relationship post-Secret Wars.
JUGGERNAUT IN COMICS
‘X-Men (1965) #12, titled “The Origin Of Professor X!”, marks the FIRST APPEARANCE of Juggernaut in Marvel continuity. The issue tells of Professor X’s brother’s attack, namely Juggernaut, on Professor X and the X-Men, and of the two brothers’ origin story.
The issue was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
