Perhaps the most popular artist of the 1980s, John Byrne’s star truly began to rise when he began drawing (and co-plotting) X-MEN with Chris Claremont. Eventually, irreconcilable differences in the direction to take the characters caused Byrne to leave the book for greener pastures–his long run as writer/artist of FANTASTIC FOUR. But the mark he made on the series is a permanent one, and it has thereafter been the thing he’s been the most associated with. The interview conducted by Peter Sanderson was done in 1982, not long after Byrne left teh series, and so his recollections of what happened in that era are undiminished by the passage of time.

“Perhaps the most popular artist of the 1980s…”
Hard to choose from Byrne, Miller and Perez!
