Presented today is an interview with John Byrne from Comics Scene #1 (1987). I did not read this interview when it was first published as I wouldn’t discover Comics Scene until the second issue, so when I finally got around to buying some back issues of the magazine a few years ago this was a real treat to find. The eleven year old me that was still in the very early months of collecting comics would have loved this article.
Like a lot.
Speaking as someone that is trying to learn all he can about the Post Crisis era of Superman this interview was a great find. It provides a real insight into where Byrne was on the Superman titles at the time and where he was about to go. It also deals with the backlash his revamp was still receiving at the time that oddly enough (and sadly) has not really ended. All in all a fine interview and a nice artifact from that time and place.
