Days of Future Future (New Byrne X-Men)
« on: October 22, 2019, 07:50:46 PM »
So about a year ago, veteran comic artist John Byrne (famous for definitive turns on Fantastic Four, Superman, and X-Men) started to write and draw a bunch of new X-Men comics just for fun.  Marvel was interested in publishing but he opted instead to run them on his own website as fan fiction.  Itís all a bit roundabout but the upshot is that thereís now five out of twelve or so full issues from a major creator returning to the property where he really made his name - and the interesting thing on top of that is the conceit that these new issues pick up from when he originally left the book in 1981.  The new comics are also pencils only, which gives a pretty fascinating glimpse into the working process of a skilled comics craftsman.

Iím having trouble pasting the links from my phone, but Iíll try to do it from my laptop later.

Yeah, itís classic stuff.  And the drawing gets better as he warms up.
