    Default IDW To Publish John Byrne Fantastic Four Artists 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.

    While I would prefer some issues from "Namor" or "Alpha Flight" still is still pretty sweet. Sold.

    Funny, because the other day I was thinking "When will IDW announce another Artist's Edition that I will most certainly buy?" (the last one I bought was Mazzuchelli's DD and the only one I'm looking forward to is "Xenozoic Tales").

    Hopefully "Art Adams' Longshot" and/or "Will Meugniot's DNAgents" will be among those as well some day.

    Well, I guess they have to get something that might make IDW money out of Byrne. Nothing else has worked.

    Then again, if Byrne stopped acting the way he does, he might become popular again. His work is good. The man himself is hard to swallow.

    I always liked seeing Byrne's process stuff because he had such tight pencils, in comparison to some artists who let the inker take over more of the burden of detail work.

    This is an idea that is very smart -
    a giant, massive book of John Byrne's art!

    Byrne's recent work on ANGEL and STAR TREK was successful enough for IDW to reprint in deluxe hardcover volumes, so I don't think you know what you're talking about.

    There are certain issue of the Byrne FF which need to be reprinted using modern techniques. For a time Byrne became enchanted with inking with a felt tip pen and the cheap printing on 1980s comics made those issues look like mud because the black ink lines were not solid like a normal pen and didn't reproduce properly.

    People can say what they want about the man, but there was a time that his art was incredible.

    And this book seems to be reprinting a few stories from that era. Sold.
