Description:
John Byrne - Original Pencil Sketch of Cyclops vs. Magneto. A classic confrontation direct from Byrne's legendary run on the X-Men, Cyke faces off against Magneto - the mutant master of magnetism! Byrne's dynamic composition and attention to detail are brilliantly evident even in a quick sketch; the hallmark of a true master. The artwork is very clean and measures 10" x 13.5" and is signed by John Byrne.

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.
