MY FAVORITE COMICS - Iron Fist by Chris Claremont and John Byrne

I still had no clue that writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne would rock my world and the world of comics with their seminal take on The Uncanny X-Men when I started following their work on Iron Fist. The stories had drama and action aplenty and the artwork was very clean and appealing. The drawn characters moved! They flowed through the pages looking alive with a fluid and organic nature. John Byrne's people were never stiff and they actually had their mouths open when they talked. There was also this attention to place - the backgrounds seemed like real places and houses. These comics (and others that followed) made me a fan of his artwork for life.
