What a wonderful and insightful video, a glimpse intro Byrne's inner sanctum.  So great to see JB's impressive collection and hear him discuss his personal/sentimental attachment with several pieces...he truly collects pages that bring him personal joy.  To paraphrase, "These pieces are either significant to me, historically meaningful or just plain cool!"  Loved that twice-up Kirby FF page inked by Ditko with a Spidey cameo, was that from FF #13??  Plus, an astonishing collection of comic action figures--- all free of packaging, ready to engage-- including a life-size (gulp!) Gal Gadot Wonder Woman.  Clearly, Byrne's workspace may appear cluttered but surely inspiring to be surrounded by so many personal treasures. :cloud9:

Thanks for sharing.

I never met him. It is lovely to see a collector quirks in a professional. He has doubles of trades, 1 to read, 1 to keep sealed, collects all of a set, ect. His OA is quite lovely as well. Awesome insight into his life.

sorry guys, I've let the tech team at SYFY know about it so they can figure out what's keeping it blocked from international viewers.

That was really enjoyable to watch. What a collection. Nice to hear Byrne talk about comics in general.

Thanks for posting his collection. Pretty impressive to see another artist with that type of setup. Alex Ross has a similar room.

Hi folks,

 

I produced/hosted this video feature on John Byrne's studio, which is PACKED with great original comic art and other amazing collectibles. John was very gracious with his time, as usual, and his fandom is apparent. The guy loves comics. 

Hope you guys enjoy it ...and please excuse my S**t-eating grin on the screen grab -- I was giddy being surrounded by John's absurd collection.

 

 

Great video, great artist and fan!  His run of FF is simply the best continuous read ever in comics.

Anyone have John’s address, I want to send him a little something for his studio (since he seems to be lacking in display items😀)

My favorite thing about comic art is seeing people ENJOY it.  Regardless of the level of art you have (and his is insane!) it just matters that you really enjoy it and you can tell that John really does!
