E-Man #9 - John Byrne art


E-Man v1 #9, 1975 - John Byrne's robotic creation, Rog 2000, turns into a man thanks to a grateful modern day witch. This humorous back-up tale is primitively drawn and perhaps tries too hard to elicit a reaction. On the positive side, Byrne employs a gradated halftone panel is used to signal the transformation, a unique approach that works successfully and is surprisingly efficient. This story was later reprinted in the compilation Rog 2000. Joe Staton continues his run on the main E-man feature. This is number 3 of 4 E-Man issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
