IDW Publishing’s John Byrne Marvel Classics Artifact Edition
Writers: various
Artist: John Byrne
Publisher: IDW Publishing

Listen up: I’m not taking anything away from John Byrne and his uncanny ability to fill readers with amazement and awe after they experience first-hand his current style of art. But, not many fans – both old and new – would argue that there was something truly magical with his Marvel output in the 1970s and ‘80s. Working with some of the best writers in the industry – while fleshing out some of the most popular characters in comics history – Byrne consistently delivered time and time again. Now, IDW is celebrating this prolific period in Byrne’s long career in the four-color medium with the John Byrne Marvel Classics Artifact Edition.

IDW presents Byrne at his finest with this collection of reproductions of his original artwork for the House of Ideas – including pages from Avengers, Captain America, Iron Fist, and Marvel Team-Up. This can’t-miss artifact edition also features a fantastic gallery section, including a special look at six unpublished pages from Byrne’s work on the now-legendary, previously unreleased Captain America #257. Shot in color from Byrne’s original black-and-white art, this artifact edition package handsomely showcases the incredibly talented creator’s delicate delineations as close as possible to the physical page.

Edited by the format’s creator, Scott Dunbier – and designed by the great Randall Dahlk – this 168-page, 12” x 17” artifact edition once again brings Byrne to the forefront of today’s respected comic book artists. His artifact edition, while being a beautifully designed example of this extraordinary artist’s creative process, also offers readers a must-have addition to the collections of True Believers everywhere. This one is for kids of all ages! Dig for yourself – and enjoy!
