IDW To Publish John Byrne Fantastic Four Artist’s Edition

The IDW Artists Edition are works of joy, the product of Scott Dunbier at the publisher, reprinting the artwork for classic stories as close to the original boards as possible, then reproducing them on Bristol board as well, for added authenticity.

And they’ve just landed the Fantastic Four, reprinting six classic issues from John Byrne‘s run on the title.

Previous speculation that IDW would be able to publish an X-Men run were scotched by Terry Austin‘s reported decision not to release his original art for such a project.
