John Byrne and Al Milgrom Amazing Adventures
#9 X-Men Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1980).
Byrne was at the
peak of his tenure on the main X-Men
title when he produced
this new take on the cover of the Silver Age X-Men
we say the result is a more effective cover than the Jack Kirby
original? Milgrom seldom inked Byrne's pencils, but their styles
mesh well here. Since both men were fans before they became pros,
we bet they had a thrill doing their version of the original team.
This piece has an image area of 10" x 15", and aside from a stain
in the lower left corner, the art is in Excellent condition.
Byrne, John:John Byrne (Canadian-American, b. 1950): broke into comics in 1974. Working mostly for Charlton at first, he soon moved to Marvel, and in 1977 he took over penciling The X-Men, collaborating with writer Chris Claremont and inker Terry Austin, and quickly becoming a fan-favorite as well as one of the highest paid artists in the industry. Among Byrne’s most celebrated stories are his runs as artist on Captain America (1979-80), and writer-artist on the Fantastic Four (1981-86) and Alpha Flight (1983-86), as well as a six-issue run on the Incredible Hulk. In 1986 DC hired Byrne to revamp Superman, but he left the character after only two years due to creative differences. Byrne returned to Marvel, working on the Sensational She-Hulk, Avengers West Coast, and Namor, the Sub-Mariner. Among Byrne’s many later works are the creator-owned John Byrne’s Next Men, as well as more work for DC and Marvel.
