John Byrne
A reinterpretation of one of the most famous Spider-man battles ever: Spider-man vs the Fantastic Four from
Amazing Spider-man #1, 1963. John's work with Chris Claremont and Terry Austin on the X-Men is on par
with Lee and Kirby's run on Fantastic Four. His stint on the Fantastic Four is equally admired. A commission by John
has been one of my all-time grails and in 2001, he finally began accepting them.
I commissioned this piece in the
Summer of 2002. It's a whopping 22" x 28"! Thanks to Jim Warden at DOA Original Art for arranging this incredible
piece. I had asked him about a Byrne commission for years. It finally paid off. (Click on image to enlarge)
