John Byrne on Reinventing Superman

   I love this man’s art. Ever since I discovered the X-Men, thanks to Tony, I have been enamored by John’s style. He has so much flavor in his designs. His style is the first name that I came to recognise behind the curtain, as it were. Well him and Stan Lee. When John went to the Fantastic Four, I was ALL IN. His art was complemented by his writing. Later he moved to Wonder Woman as a worth successor to George Pérez.

   When “Man of Steel” came out, I didn’t even notice that he tweaked Kal-El’s origin. I was blown away by the aesthetic and scope of the story. Please enjoy, John regaling us with tales of his own take on Clark, and Lois.
