Omac v2 #1 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Omac v2 #1, 1991 - The One Man Army Corps returns in a four issue limited series, tasked with time traveling to the past to avert a dismal future. John Byrne utilizes the characters first created by Jack Kirby, staying true to the artist's original intent. Drawn in black and white, the images convey a starkness and austerity not seen before. Byrne's interior art is somber yet exciting, serious yet engaging. Five bold splash pages punctuate this lengthy tale, one of the artist's finest post-bronze age works. This is number 1 of 4 Omac issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Omac issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
