I think the most obscure items (and they aren't all that obscure) are a copy of the comic reader with Iron Fist and Power Man by Mr. Byrne a la Mad's Don Martin (it's brilliant) and a cover of Crazy that had a Byrne/Austin cover a la Not Brand Echh. That one's brilliant too, and deserves its own poster.


There's an interview with the same style of X-Men but even funnier (e.g., Wolvie's claws are so long that his legs don't reach the ground...)

Other than a few shown here and along with Deaths Head Knight, I have this...not sure if it's rare or not.

This one was fun. Probably a pretty high print run, but how many of us bought it?

Um, forgive me for being a bit dim, but what were the Byrne works in the Mad magazine or the WWN?

The WWN is the side-by-side anti-saint full page art. You can see "JB" in the bottom right corner of each one.

Not exactly “works” in MAD. He had a letter printed.

How's this for obscure?



When I liberated the remaining JURASSIC PARK artwork
from JB's flat files they came in these large
envelopes. On the back of one of them it says MAN OF
STEEL #1. I assume the original art to MOS #1 at one
time resided in this same large envelope! LOL. I'm
not even sure if that's JB's handwriting on the
envelopes now that I think about it. I thought they
were interesting enough to add to my permanent
collection.

I think that might be the handwriting of the infamous Jim Warden!

I did have one small piece published in MAD a few years back. Took that off my bucket list.

The editor welcomed me to “the Usual Gang of Idiots”.
