John Byrne Turned Down Before Watchmen

Before Watchmen begins next week, DC Comics continue to show off new variant covers from the likes of Jim Lee and Kevin Nowlan, below.

One they can’t show off, however is John Byrne’s. Byrne hasn’t produced new work for Marvel and DC in some time, and has seemingly fallen out with the management to such an extent that working for them again seemed impossible, from either party. But he writes to one fan’s response to the existence of the prequel project.

Why “Urrgh”? Maybe they’ll be GOOD!

Sure, low odds, right? But you never know. And there is some serious talent attached. (Tho not ME. I was offered a cover, but declined.)
