E-Man #7 - John Byrne art


E-Man v1 #7, 1975 - In his second back-up story of the series, Rog-2000 encounters a haunted house on a dark and stormy night, with a title reference to Emily Bronte's classic novel. For a humorous parody, it is surprisingly well drawn for its genre. John Byrne' large opening panel sets the perfect tone with its gradated zipatone background and painterly wind-blown leaves. His brushwork is more skillful than others, evidenced by the textures on the burning house (page 7).  This story was later reprinted in the 1985 compilation Rog 2000. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton (art and cover). This is number 2 of 4 E-Man issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or E-man issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
