History of John Byrne in Comic Book Art

John Byrne began his comic book career while attending the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary in 1970, creating comics for the school newspaper including a regular strip that featured his first original character, Gay Guy, a superhero parody that poked fun at stereotypes of the time.

This character would serve as the prototype for Snowbird, a later character created for the series Alpha Flight. While still attending school, Byrne published his first comic, ACA Comix #1 before dropping out prior to graduation to work in the industry full time.

Byrne was heavily influenced by the work of Jack Kirby and would later take the helm of many of Kirby's original characters. He was also drawn to the work of Neal Adams for his naturalistic style. Byrne began freelancing for Charlton Comics before taking a full-time position with Marvel Comics.

Alpha Flight, Marvel Team-Up, The Fantastic Four, The Champions and The Uncanny X-Men were all regular series that Byrne became the mainstay penciller for throughout the 1970's.

In 1980, Byrne began working for DC Comics beginning with the miniseries The Untold Legend of the Batman and was then asked to revamp the publisher's flagship character Superman. This was part of the publisher's restructuring of the DC Universe and Byrne's new take on the superhero garnered much attention and acclaim.

Byrne would later return to Marvel again in the 1990's to work on series like Avengers West Coast, The Sensational She-Hulk, Iron Man and a revamping of Namor, the Sub-Mariner.

In 2008, Byrne was inducted into the Canadian Comic Book Creator Hall of Fame and in 2015, Byrne was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. He was also the recipient of the Favourite Comic Book Artist Eagle Award in both 1978 and 1979.
