Art of John Byrne - John Byrne art, cover & reprints
The Art of John Byrne, 1980 - Super-heroes recoil in fear from the robotic Rog-2000 on John Byrne's amusing painted cover. Following essays by Roger Stern and Terry Austin, the main interview is interspersed with various sketches and finished artwork. A two-page portrait of Marvel heroes (the only interior pages in color) fill the center spread. "Critical Error", an adult-themed space exploration tale, contains 25 story pages with no captions or dialogue (see interior page below). Rounding out the book are six stunning, full page portraits of individual X-men (Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Phoenix, Colossus and Sprite) and a primarily bronze age checklist. Paperback, full color cover & back cover, black and white interiors (except center spread), 76 pages total. See today's posts or more Byrne issues.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
