Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Hard to remember the years when there was no Internet. How long would it really since leaving Marvel John Byrne and media attention?
I already knew this was happening, the local comic shop owner told me about Byrne's departure. But when I saw this headline back in '86, it made me a bit sad. I remember thinking "this must be how Beatles fans felt when they heard about the break-up!". Not exactly, but the FF(Marvel's "Fab Four"just to keep the Beatles references going here) certainly took a nosedive for a while.
I wish Byrne would come back to Marvel again. I guess him and Quesada got into a fight, i thought i heard.
Interesting that Stern and Ordway soon joined Byrne on the Superman family of comics at DC ...
