Omac v2 #2 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Omac v2 #2 , 1991 - Transported to the 1930s, Omac unexpectedly reverts to his alter ego Buddy Blank. In addition to losing his powers, the hero consequently suffers from amnesia. John Byrne does an exceptional job despite being restricted to black and white. Depression-era Manhattan is grimly portrayed, especially in the decrepit buildings in the opening splash. Curiously, the villain's hand on the bottom of page 41 looks suspiciously unfinished. Even so, Byrne gives a fresh new interpretation worthy of Jack Kirby's characters. This is number 2 of 4 Omac issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Omac issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
