Secret Origins v3 annual #1 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Secret Origins v3 annual #1, 1987 - Retelling the origin of the Doom Patrol, John Byrne delivers a competent and enjoyable effort. His symmetrical cover design divides past and present members centered around the ever-present Robotman. Byrne's interiors sometimes convey a simplicity not dissimilar from the team's early days in My Greatest Adventure. This annual ends with a separate tale on Captain Comet's origin. Other artists in this issue include Ron Harris and Bruce Patterson. This is number 1 of 1 Secret Origins issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Secret Origins issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
