Marvel Fanfare #29 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Marvel Fanfare v1 #29, 1986 - Summoned to a remote desert, the Incredible Hulk is greeted by an elderly Native American for purposes unknown. John Byrne employs a bold character for a bold artistic approach. The story is entirely comprised of splash pages, from beginning to end. They vary in tone and composition, with almost no two pages alike. Yet the format appears to work well within the plot without sacrificing clarity. Byrne's experiment is unexpected but ultimately successful. The same approach was later used less effectively in Superman v2 #75 ("Death of Superman"). This is number 1 of 2 Marvel Fanfare issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Marvel Fanfare issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
