The Champions #11 – The Shadow From the Stars released by Marvel on February 1977
John Byrne takes over this series just prior to his run on the X-men. This would be his first team book for Marvel, giving the title a fresh contemporary look from the previous issues. Black Goliath joins the team after the cancellation of his own short-lived series, while Hawkeye and the Two Gun Kid make a guest appearance.
Even with this multitude of characters, Byrne does a competent job at keeping the scenes organized with minimal confusion. His well-paced layouts also receive an impressive final polish by inker Bob Layton. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover).
This is number 1 of 6 Champions issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
