John Byrne

John Byrne (born 1950) is a writer and artist of comic books.

Byrne was born in Walsall, England, but immigrated with his family to Canada in 1958. He attended the Alberta College of Art[?] in Calgary for a few years until Byrne and the school realized that his interests lay elsewhere. He made his first professional sale in 1975 for the Charlton Comics title Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch. He eventually moved on to Marvel Comics and DC Comics where he has handled virtually every character at one time or another, including an award-winning run on the Fantastic Four and the 1986 revival of Superman. He has also produced his own creator-owned projects for Dark Horse Comics, including John Byrne's Next Men[?], Danger Unlimited[?], and Babe.
