Man of Steel #2 - John Byrne art & cover

John Byrne
Man of Steel v1 #2, 1986 - Superman makes his debut in Metropolis, piquing the interest of an ambitious reporter named Lois Lane. John Byrne’s superb pacing and layouts do most of the heavy lifting in this second issue. In some cases, they actually exceed his terrific drawings. Especially inventive is the sequence of Lois’ arrival at several Superman sightings (page 14). Byrne’s best moment is the opening splash, turning a casual breakfast at Metropolis cafe into an unforgettable event. This is number 2 of 6 Man of Steel issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Man of Steel issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
