The next volume of the Modern Masters series celebrates the life and work of one of today's top artists, John Byrne! From the death of Phoenix to the rebirth of Superman, Byrne is one of the most influential comic book artists working in the business. On X-Men, he penciled the greatest stories in the history of the title and helped propel the X-Men to their current household-name status. His work as writer and artist of Fantastic Four returned the group to prominence within the Marvel Universe. And his reboot of the Superman mythology brought national attention to the comic book industry. This volume features an extensive, career-spanning interview lavishly illustrated with rare and unpublished art, as well as a large sketchbook section.

Review: Modern Masters Volume Seven: John Byrne (Modern Masters #7)

User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

He never should've tried to revive Spidey. From that point on he's been on a skid like Rob Reiner since the mid '90s, but he was definitely a god for a time. Read full review

About the author (2006)

John Byrne, originally from Dublin, Ireland, is one of Britain's top cartoonists, comedy writers and stand-up comedians with wide-ranging experience in performance, production and the teaching of creative skills. He is currently the resident artist on Nickelodeon TV (UK), drawing live and unscripted, and often with "art materials" that include everything from sausages to toothbrushes to TV presenters with luminous paint in their hair. He has a six year-old son Pearse, is married to Fumi, and has a house full of teen in-laws (who he loves dearly especially since realizing the importance of babysitters!).
